I've finished my S-I-L's scarf and it came out very well, I think. You can hardly see where I dumped the forkful of fettuccine Alfredo on it. I also finished a Moebius scarf for my cousin in New Jersey; this had been sitting around for about a week and a half, waiting for me to finish off the ends for the knit-on I-cord edging. The scarf for my goddaughter has been finished for a few days.
Now I've got to launder and block these three scarves, which I'm kind of putting off. I'm not sure I have a towel long enough for the two long scarves. I suppose I can just pin them down on the bare carpet, without the towel, or use two towels but both alternatives seem really wrong somehow. I've always used a single towel over the carpet for blocking. Oh, well, I'll adapt.
Anyway, all I have left to finish is the Serene Moebius scarf I mentioned before, on which I've knitted nine of, probably, twelve rows and an I-cord bind-off. Then there's a blue or black scarf for my godson, a lavender and blue scarf for our niece, and a teal and green scarf for our friend Don. This last must be a manly scarf, so I need to find just the right pattern.
Fortunately, none of these people is expecting their scarf on Christmas Day. That's mostly because we already gave most of them gift certificates in good time.
