The scarf turned out well. I think that I will need to block it again soon because it is still curling a bit, but for now it is satisfactory. I learned a bit even though I blocked a simple project I still got a bit of a feel for the process.
Not much else is going on in my knitting world besides winding balls, and doing some finishing on various projects. Nothing new will be cast on until after my vacation. As for what I will be taking with me I think I will take my sweater with me, and another small project or two. There won't be much time for knitting, but there is noway I can go anywhere without needles and some yarn.
