Movable Type 3.2

I finally finished the scarf I started in Texas in March:
I realized the other day that it just needed to have the ends woven in, so yay, it's done! I have to admit that I have no idea what the yarn is. I bought it in Texas and it was from a small local-ish company and . . . yeah, no idea. Oops. The pattern is Yarn Harlot's One-Row Scarf, which was delightful.

Purple Seed Stitch Dishcloth
This dishcloth is in all ways unexceptional, except that it's been a while since I've posted any knitting, so I thought I might as well show you some proof that I still do finish things on occasion.
In some ways, this is my favorite sort of knitting. There's something empowering about thinking "Hey, I could use a new dishcloth," and then creating one from leftover materials I had lying around. And it was certainly a satisfying break from the various large-scale projects I've been working on.

Baby Hat and Blanket
This morning I finished up two gifts for a friend's baby-to-be.

It's mistake rib, which is one of my favorite scarf stitches: easy but not boring, reversible, and unisex. Just cast on a multiple of 3 (I think I did 42 here, because, well, you know) and *K2, P1* (repeat) on each row. The yarn is Patons Classic Wool - my default worsted wool - and I've lost the ballband but I think the color is Palais. Yes, it does the zig-zaggy thing itself. Love it. I may have to make one (or several) for myself in the various colorways. (Ravelry page here.)

Palindrome, and My Photogenic Father
Now, this photo looks pretty normal, but take a look at the other pictures I had to take first to get the one decent one:
Love you, Dad!
