The 10 km scarf knits on for the second WIP Wednesday

So, It's WIP Wednesday again. It seems like wednesdays occur more frequent then the other days, dosen't it?

Anyway, I'm still mostly workning on my 10 km Scarf. Since it's so much else going on in the appartment, i like simplicity of it. It's measuring about 1,1 m now! (1.2 yards)

I've added all of the pink I had, some crazy withe effect yarn that made people at the knitting café get a strained look on their faces and say "oh, how.. interesting".
It's not interesting, It's really quite ugly. But then I'm not generally one for effect yarns, and I don't think the kids will care all that much. The grey is a short bit of Norwegian sock yarn.

Someone at the knitting café asked me if It was a two sided braid. Apparently there is a way to knit braids that makes them identical on both on the front and back side. I need to check this out and try it., Im fairly certain I understand the principal of i when she explained.

I have sorted out a few skeins from my stash for this project. All of them is Eskimo from Drops Yarns, except from the red one which is Iglo soft from Trysil Yarn (Note how they all happend to be bulky, I'm not stupid, I want to see som dan progress when i knit this, 10 km is a loong way)

I've also made a bit of progress on Baktus but it's going slooow and I've made a few granny squares with the goal of a pillow for the kitchen sofa.

And, as always, check out some other WIPs over at Tamis Amis.
