So I have a scarf that I've been working on since late May or so.  It's a Lace Ribbon scarf that I'm doing in Manos Silk.  I love how the yarn is knitting up for the pattern, but I'm starting to realize that it's going to be quite a bit shorter than I prefer in a scarf.  I like them LONG.  However, I decided I wanted this one to be wide as well.  Now I'm pondering whether to rip out the almost full skein I've knitted on it so far, or just suck it up and deal with the length.  I may put it in the time out corner for a bit while I decide.  I really do want it to be longer than it's turning out but the thought of frogging it right now makes me weep.  And if I decide to set it aside, I need to figure out what to work on during the next couple weeks (though I have plenty of WIPs that I can pick up).

What's also playing into this is that I'm competing in the Ravellenic Games this year on Ravelry.  Basically you compete in Olympic Hellenic style events on various teams during the time period of the Olympic games.  (The USOC sent a nasty letter to Ravelry for using the O word claiming they lose money because of it. Whatever.)  So that time frame will be dedicated to the knitting I'm doing for that.

So, I'm thinking I'm going to do the "Scarf Hockey" event and use that same entry as a cross-competing one in the "Synchronized Stash Busting" with several skeins of Malabrigo worsted sitting in my bins right now.  The pattern I'm looking at is fairly similar to the Lace Ribbon, but it has more of a cabled look (without actually cabling).  My biggest concern is that I'm on the slow side when it comes to knitting.  I get way too easily distracted with things like LJ and Tumblr and WoW which aren't really conducive to knitting at the same time.  I really want to compete and finish this though.  Sort of a mini-NaNoWriMo for knitters.

Anyhoo...This is pretty much the state of my life right now.  Nothing all that exciting happening other than work and waiting for the next episode of Suits and the Season premiere of White Collar next week.
