This scarf brought to you by Fauxy, the Transvestite Muppet

On the one hand, it's ... fluffy. On the other hand, it's ... fluffy?

No, that is not my desk. Are you serious?
You thought my desk would be that clean?

So the Pep "blocco" scarf in red and black is... uh. Fluffy. I still love the way the yarn goes from red to black real quicklike, especially on big needles, and the yarn is very soft. Yet there is no escaping the obvious.

This is one ugly ass scarf.

But of course I knit onward and crazyward, even bought me another ball of yarn to finish it (50% off at the big Unwind sale!!), because Lord knows I cannot just leave well enough alone... no. I have to take well enough and make it nine feet long.

There is something very wrong with me.


Dear Karman,
If you are reading this, please stop. Also, since I know you well enough to know you are still reading this, I apologize for your scary Christmas present. I plan to make it up to you by wrapping this beast around a nice bottle of champagne.
Love,
Laurie

(Right now my mom is reading this and saying THANK GOD THAT SCARF IS FOR SOMEONE ANYONE BUT ME THANK YOU LORD I WILL BE A BETTER PERSON FROM NOW ON I PROMISE AMEN.)

I love to knit, even when I am doing nothing but garter stitch on a BOLD and FLAIR-FILLED project such as Ms. Muppet. People on the bus just look at me, then look at the big fluffy and look away. This scarf is the knitting version of a social disease. I love it. Karman, I hope this scarf brings you as much isolation and public scorning as it has brought me. In Los Angeles, City Of Freaks, I suspect the gift of soluitude may be the kindest gift of all ... even if it is wrapped in red and black fun fur stripes.
