After doing all those hats (I finished another one on Wednesday night) and struggling with the tinyness of stitches on dpns, while trying to look alert, I succumbed to the impulse to start something else.
The problem, if you want to call it that, was that I didn't have anything with me that I could switch to. Happily I was on my way to Unraveled where I knew there'd be lots of things from which to choose. They have a bunch of needles on sale. That's good since I haven't been able to find my US13s. Got some Britanny for about $7.00. Then found some yarn with an appropriate gauge. Not, unfortunately, on sale.
It was raining and cold so I thought another scarf would come in handy. And there it is. Worked this bit up last night at knitting group. A 9 stitch braid cable centered between two opposing 4 stitch rope cables. And a little ribbing to fill it out a bit. I'd have more done except we were also celebrating a birthday so we had to stop for cake. (Good, but not chocolate.)
