On My Needles

     "Blue" BD gift done; on to another lovely project - may take a bit more time. It is called "diagonal staircase scarf," 6"w x 60"l (or approximately, depending on one's height). It is on size 7 needles and one gains 1.5" every eight rows, each of 44 stitches. Can you tell I am counting toward the 15,000 stitches I will be doing? LOL - The yarn is 65% cotton, 30% rayon, and 5% silk - a very soft touch.  
     [May need to be doing three projects here at once; have another snuggle sack going (waiting for one skein of yarn); and, just saw the sweetest pair of fingerless mitts that are a "must do."] 
     Oh, my, more time?
