when the other knitting isn't working, i often fall back on something that's a sure thing .....
though this may look complicated, the pattern is very easy to follow. it's triinu's scarf from nancy bush's _knitted lace of estonia_.
in the beginning, i felt the nupps were a total pain. they're not exactly enjoyable now, but they're not as time consuming either. so far, i only found one mistake which i was able to fix (i had not caught all my loops from a nupp and was able to drop down and pick it up).
i am about 1/2 way through this scarf now. i hope i continue to knit on it as it's mindless, and small enough to stash into my purse.
