I am totally shelving my feather and fan scarf. That is the project I was talking about in my previous posts re: the joins. For the record, thanks to everyone for their suggestions on the joins. They were helpful, and I think I've found a join that will work. My problem now is that I'm wholly unmotivated to spend that amount of time on this project. Changing colors every four rows is a pain in my ass, and I do NOT have the drive to do so right now. LOL I think it will be my project for Mondays at work where I can sit there and painstakingly join yarn just as I get going at a good clip while my telephone customers drone on and refuse to let me speak...or ask me questions when I'm in the midst of answering the very questions they're asking me. Knitting is good for keeping me from slamming my head on the desk.
I'm going to work on another So-Called Scarf now with another beautiful skein of Trabajos del Peru (which I actually prefer to Manos) that my yarn store gave me for half off... just 'cause! Actually, I had filled up my punch card and got $15 off, which covered one skein, so they're not THAT magnanimous, but still. :-)
Here is a picture of the feather-and-fan scarf so far. I love the color combo but just wish I wasn't so impatient with joining the yarn. LOL That's my fault, though...not the yarn's.
