One Hand For Knitting; One Hand For Petting

Delilah's owner has been very gracious and patient with me; she has continued to allow Delilah to come over and spend the night with me. However, I realize that I need to either get my own cat or leave Delilah to my neighbor. I find myself searching online for a cat that tugs at my heart the way Delilah has. My friend's sister-in-law has a few strays hanging out at her house, and I'm going to go see if any of them will become my cat.

But first, another picture of my friend, Delilah:

I was reading the Knitting Help forums and came across a discussion on "no-brainer" flat knit patterns. I've got a sock on my dpns, and it's been there for a few weeks now, even though I've made it all the way to the toe. I just can't seem to finish it. One of the easy patterns they discussed was a scrunchable scarf. The pattern is ridiculously easy, K2 P1, on any multiple of 3 stitches (and you could add one on each side for selvage). This is my attempt at that scarf and it's the first time I've tried fringe. My fringe started out really long, but I'm a really bad barber so the fringe is short.

This scarf was really easy to do while watching tv or petting Delilah. I might try it again, now that I've done it once so I can improve on the original. As I knitted, I was thinking that perhaps I can gift the final products to family. My final product, for this first attempt, is not something I would be willing to gift because it feels too homemade. However, there is always the second time. Or third. Depending on if I get bored with it and finally go back to my poor sock.
