My other current knitting project is a scarf. Luckily (not to jinx it) I think we're out of the scarf season where I live so I'm not in too much of a hurry to get this project done!
My Mom met a lady last year at farmers market who has a few pet sheep, and she spins their wool into yarn. I was really excited about that, so she picked up a ball of yarn to try out. Here's what it looks like so far: (the yarn has varying thickness)
This is my "mindless" project since it is straight knitting from start to finish. Some days I just don't feel like thinking about a pattern and this is the perfect thing for it.
