After getting everything packed, I looked outside and realized that the rain which had been falling was not going to stop. In fact it was getting more steady. My original plan was to head out for the weekend Thursday late afternoon, but the idea of trying to get everything into and then out of the car in the rain did not appeal to me.

There was only one problem. I had packed everything I wanted to work on.  I opened up the yarn bag and grabbed a skein of Lion Brand Homespun yarn I had gotten at a yarn swap.  While I love this yarn, it is a pain to use as the loops are hard to see with everything it has going on. I’ve learned the best way for me to use it is to do a pattern with a double crochet, chain and a skipped stitch. This way I don’t have to worry about finding the top of the stitch, but can go right into the gaps.

One skein is about the perfect length for an infinity scarf. Once done, it will go into my Christmas gifts pile.
