Zingy, innit? Like so many others, I used the Brooklyn Tweed 'Noro' striped scarf instructions (as opposed to pattern), and although I hate doing 1x1 rib it knitted up fairly quickly and easily while I watched telly.
No time to blog more, I'm going out tonight - woohoo!
PS Cake turned out nice. And I tasted the chocolate raspberry brownies (quality control, naturally), mmm - they will be consumed at my brother's party tonight.
