Timey Wimey And Then Some Scarf

Double knitting is a contradiction in my knitting life. It's a little magical how it produces an inverse image on each side, and it feels a little bit like counted cross stitch to me. When I'm not doing double knitting, I miss it terribly and am eager to start a double knitting project. In the middle of a project, I can barely believe how tedious it is, and can't wait to finish it. I'm on my 3rd double knitting project at the moment, and for the 3rd time, I'm wondering what the heck I was thinking when I embarked on this project. It's not that it isn't enjoyable when I'm working it, but it is so tedious.

My latest double knitting project is called the Timey Wimey scarf, I named it such after my favorite episode in Doctor Who, Blink, as the scarf consists of Doctor Who inspired motifs. I decided to combine a plain black yarn with a Chroma yarn from KnitPicks, which is a lovely gradient yarn.

I love what I've done so far, but I'm barely 1/3 done. One of the major reasons I'm now so slow with this project is that I've stopped working on it regularly, and instead save it for car trips and vacations. Well, I have a vacation in Alaska coming up next week, so hopefully I'll be able to get some progress made.

Although I can't wait to finish this, I also have a feeling that when it's all done, when it's finally all done, it won't be long before I start to want to start another double knitting project ...
