This was meant to be a post about two new projects, but only one that I cast on this weekend decided to stick. I'd cast on some socks for either my father or C's Christmas present (fortunately, they're the same shoe size, so I can decide after I've made them who gets what), using some yarn I had in my stash, but I found I didn't like the color (too girly). So I'm a Knitpicks order away from starting their gifts.
I also cast on a Haruha scarf, using my much abused Malabrigo Solis sock yarn. I suspect I'm going to be doing a fair amount of cheating and knotting between the desperate mini-skeins, but that there are two in the little bit I've done above, and the knots seem to be hideable, so I think it'll end up being alright. We'll see. Should be interesting, if nothing else.
