I am working through the last foot of the third of four Doctor Who themed scarves. Thank goodness I get to change colors regularly, 12 feet is enough to drive anyone insane. At least this one the customer wanted it six inches wide rather than the full foot which is making the process much faster but I still have just as many ends to weave in, yuck.

I had better get back to the never ending scarf so I can start on my next project…SOCKS!!!!
