What to do?

Okay, so here is the poncho I'm working on for a co-worker. As you can see, she is using quality yarn. I am just having such a hard time getting into this project. I guess it's because this is not my taste, and not something I would ever choose to make. And I'm worried about her liking my modifications. She gave me carte blanche, but still... I hope it comes out okay. Lesson learned: no commissions of any sort for Sally.

In other project news, my knitted scarf is getting longer, and I am now at an impasse - do I make it longer, or stop now? Help me out here, people.

There is this chick on Flickr who goes by Cosymakes . She knits little scarflet/neckwarmers, then fastens them with pins or clip-on earrings. They are super cute, and if I do the same, I'll have enough yarn leftover to make another scarflet and matching fingerless gloves. Maybe even a hat. So what do you think? How should I proceed? Let me know.

If it were me, I would keep knitting on the scarf. I think being able to wrap the scarf is more desirable than the pin. Especially because pins can do bad things to knitwear. Also, using up yarn is always better than trying to figure out if you have enough for another project.

As for the Blogger issue, the pics always initially load at the top of the page. You can then cut and paste the html code into the post wherever you want it. Go to the "Edit HTML" window in your editor, and then highlight all the code that corresponds to the picture, and then paste it wherever you want.

How long is it really -- it looks about 20 inches if the needle is 14". I like my scarves longer but it is all up to you. A matching hat is always nice. Nice work!

longer scarf.

and I know you will finish the poncho because you are a woman of your word. give it 30 minutes of your time every day and finish it. I remember you staring the crochet border and my liking the way it was working up.

every project is a learning experience.
