Wow, this has been an unbelivably crappy day. Have you ever been in a situation where someone is attacking you for no legitimate reason? Where the things they are complaining about have been festering for them for months? Where every problem they have could have easily been solved with a little bit of communication?
Well, that's what happened to me today. Remember when I blogged about the great office-sharing opportunity we had "lucked" into? Turns out--ain't so great. I mean, if you don't mind completely bat-shit crazy, it's probably fine. As for me and Eric, we're outta there. Reasonable, rational, grownup-type people can't function in an insane person's world, and we're not going to try anymore. It's not worth it.
My Tulsa readers: know of any office space? We're so going to need it. Email me!
On to the good stuff. This scarf--my God. So gorgeous.
After blocking, it laid so flat and nice. It's delicate, airy, very ethereal.
It's going to be hard to give up and send off to my Scarf Exchange Pal. The good news is my scarf pal is awesome, so I am going to be very happy to let her have it.
It will still be hard though.

It's been a long time since I have knit a scarf and I forgot how much stamina it requires. I loved this pattern the first few days, but the closer I got to the end, the more I couldn't wait to be done. I have enough yarn and beards left to make myself one, but I just don't know if I cold manage it. At least not for a looong time.
Thanks for all the great comments about this scarf. I can honestly say it's the most beautiful thing I have made thus far, and that's with all the credit to the pattern, and the yarn. All I did was knit it.
