And what have we learned?

These are the results of yesterday's knitting adventures.

As you can see, there are several lessons to be learned here:

1) Do NOT swatch in the dark. You will not care about dropped stitches...leading to oddly shaped "squares" which are fairly useless as gauge swatches.

2) If doing duplicate stitch, do not attempt said activity in the pleasantly dim atmosphere of a coffeehouse. Doing so may lead to crooked stormtrooper heads - possibly a result of a misalignment in the Force?

3) Uncommon Grounds really does have wonderful sweets. (Well, you can't see that from the photo, but you'll just have to take my word on it.) However, eating a nanaimo bar with one's fingers is not a good idea when handling knitted goods, as chocolate and wool tend to have a difficult relationship. I hear that they're seeking counselling, though.

4) A embroidery hoop might help when doing detailed work so that one can see what one is doing. Of course, blocking the scarf first so that the stitches are better defined might also be part of the solution.

5) I can be such a royal dumbass sometimes.

And now I'm going to take a page out of Morgan's book:

Tune of the moment: Hammer - Die Fantastischen Vier
