Here is the completed DNA scarf, affectionately posed with the Paris-Match beret, which is a few inches into the decreasing stage. You are seeing the top of the beret, still open, with the brim visible at the bottom, and the scarf under it. They were not designed to go together, but I thought they would be a good match, and I think I was right. Once I get down to the dps, and have my circular 3 back, I will begin on DNA scarf number two. I can’t believe that I finished the whole thing and still have to look at the chart. But the beret is very simple, so I will have a simple project to carry around, and one requiring a chart to keep at home.

We decorated for Hallowe’en yesterday, at #2 son’s suggestion. In the box with the Hallowe’en quilt and all the electric Jack o’ Lanterns and stuff was the patchwork table runner I started last Hallowe’en. We had just had the wedding, and there was no way to finish it in time, so I put it away in its half-completed state and literally forgot all about it. I may finish it this year. On the other hand, I have an old college friend coming to visit, so I feel a need to clean my house. And all these holiday gifts to make. And a benefit concert to arrange. And the Christmas concerts: the Vivaldi Gloria and Messiah. And the knitting circle, and study. And a life to conduct. So I might not.
