Tired Knitting

Today we had several tired knitters in the shop. Familiar tales of slogging through unhappy projects or trying to winnow down to less on the needle. General knitting malaise.

Except for the customer knitting a dragon scarf for her husband. He was very clear about the yarn selection. Something shiny, like dragon scales.

Even though I don't have a dragon scarf to knit (though I suppose that I could), I decided to focus in on finishing an old Fair Isle cardigan. From a Debbie Bliss magazine maybe two years ago.

One sleeve almost done. Another to finish. Then pesky finishing details. But I do want to knit this, which is a change in a good direction.
