The humble beginnings of the grumpiest Curlicue in the world (Grumpecue?). Will this actually become a non-puckered blanket? I have no freaking idea, but because I'm stupidly superstitious, I'm using different needles and different yarn... well, at least a different color of the same yarn.
In other news, my dad requested that I knit a scarf for him. This is incredibly exciting for me because he never asks me for anything. At the same time, he's an even more picky person than I am, so this project will take a lot of planning. I will surf the web and my library far and wide to find the perfect mix of yarn and pattern. I'm sure at one point or another a spreadsheet will be made and several e-mails discussing it will be exchanged with my dad. Yeah, I'm psyched!
