So, while all this yarn and supply reorganization is happening, I can't forget about the knitting. Dad's scarf is finished. A quick washing and laying out to dry, and it is ready to go. [Caution! Blurry photo alert!]
While I was washing the scarf I had the absolutely brilliant idea (if I do say so myself) to use a long radiator we have in the living room as a substitute blocking board. The heat from the radiator helped the scarf to dry quickly. Not a technique I would recommend in every circumstance, but it worked fine here.
