I forgot to say; earlier tonight, I finished the grey wool scarf that I was knitting. It is *just* long enough to tie with one knot and it will stretch. It knitted perfectly using the broken rib patter leaving a six inch tail of yarn from the two and (roughly) a half 50g balls of yarn.
Now I just have to decide whether to keep it (Wool! It itches! Fie!) or who to give it to. Also, what to knit next? I have two 25g balls of Wendy Double Knit Courtelle (one is grey and the other is rust coloured) and one 40g ball of Wendy Peter Pan Darling DK (white) left out of the yarn that my mum donated.
I might also undo the sampler that I did with that cream Evergreen and try to play with cables or something - maybe make a dishcloth, although I can't remember where I saw the pattern - rupestur
Mum also mentioned that she knits squares, like granny used to. I forgot to ask *why* and/or *what for*. I also forgot to ask what dimensions that she uses.
Anyone got any ideas?
