Work on the Binary scarf progresses.
It has reached a mass great enough that it can be uncomfortable to hold the scarf on my lap on a hot day. This scarf only works as commuter knitting because I typically commute with a mostly-empty backpack.
Surprisingly, I am not bored with the pattern, perhaps because it does not have a true repeat. I must check my selected sequence of ones and zeros for each row of characters, but only for one set-up row. The color sequence for other rows follows logically from there. As I mentioned previously, the stretches of color are short enough that I don't have to worry about weaving floats or anything like that, and at this point I've done enough stranded knitting in this project and the Midna Mitts that I have picked up speed. I try to finish at least two rows of numbers a day, but for most of the past two weeks my average has been closer to three. I anticipate binding off this scarf in the next few days.
It is a timely finish for this project, as I am signed up for the August edition of the Geek and Nerd swap and am still waiting delivery of a few materials before diving into the handmade for that. As the month is more than a third gone, I likely have a crafting marathon in store for me. We shall see!
