A Stupid Question


Who needs a pattern to knit a scarf?

No, seriously. Even the lacy ones. It's just the same thing over and over, right? You cast on until it's about as wide as you want it and a nice tidy multiple of your pattern, then you knit until you run out of yarn or the scarf is long enough. I don't get it. I've read four scarf patterns online, and none of them contain any seekrit scarf ju-ju that is anything more than "do this over and over until you have a scarf."

Also, I'm completely stunned by knitting patterns for very simple ribbed hats. You don't need a pattern make that! On the other hand, reading one of those patterns helps me understand how to read more complex knitting patterns a bit better, though I'm still trying to assimilate some of it.

In case you couldn't tell, I finished my work in studio early, and now I'm sitting around my room (waiting until Noel arrives for the weekend, yay!) thinking of all sorts of misbehaviour to get up to. I think I deserve it, because I had an incredibly realistic dream last night about fixing the worst stopped-up toilet ever and woke up with this shuddering dread, thinking I had to go back to augering the thing.
