Null Hypothesis

Finished, somehow, my double-knit scarf for Ancient Runes. Definitely could have used another month for this, because I had to spend 1-2 hours every day on it. But it's pretty cool... double-sided, goes with anything, a bit steam-punk, warm, soft and 2.5m long.

Here's Zac trying to show both sides for me

And one that shows the middle section (the pipes) a bit better. Man, it's hard to take a squarish picture of both sides of a long scarf!

In keeping with the grey theme, I also knit up some little fingerless gloves. The pattern is called "Something Wicked" and fit in nicely with the poem I'm learning this month, which is (a bit of) the witches' song from MacBeth. I thought it would be fun to mutter "...eye of newt and toe of frog..." while I was cooking, or crushing patients' meds with a mortar and pestle. Hehe.

New pattern, too, by Kristin Lehrer, whose podcast I've been listening to.

And then there were socks... I'm working on my 4th pair for the month, but these orange ones are my favorites so far. Other two are warm but ugly :)

The crazy colored yarn (aptly called Kandinsky )

The current spinning is very blue and calm. And the next NEWT, she is ready to start on April  1. It's going to be a dull and boring month next month!

LOVE the scarf! Is it extra thick because of being two sided? I hope to get to see it when we are down again (no idea when that will be though. Hoping to come down after Christmas, but a visit before then would also be good).

Abby will enjoy your potion making quotes from Macbeth. For her Major Project for her Year 12 Visual Design class she has chosen to make a graphic novel of Macbeth. She has been busily designing characters for it, and has just started sketching the story. Looks fantastic so far.
