Only two thirds of the way through the red scarf. Must.. get.. cracking... I hope to finish it up on my trip to the United States next week. If I do, then I can mail it in country instead of trusting it to the Taiwan postal system. Which is not so good at delivering things, especially my magazines.
I am using the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern, and I am liking it a LOT. It looks much more complicated than it is. Just slow going, but that is more my fault (and hot Taipei's fault) than the pattern's. I am using yarn that has been in my stash for years - Berroco's Uxbridge tweed - with size 8 circular needles.
Nice little project for an even nicer cause. I am ready to finish the scarf though, so I can move on to fall sewing for kiddo. Or maybe a new dolly.
