First up - my "commuting, take to work and knit night because I don't have to think about it" project: a Baktus scarf. I don't know what this yarn is; it's from the bottom of the stash and didn't have a label. I did a swatch, threw it in with the laundry a couple weeks ago and it came out just fine so it's something machine washable and dryable; a burn test proved it to be synthetic, so I'm guessing some acrylic/nylon/polyester blend but it's very soft. It's fairly splitty so I'm using blunt US 10s in plain garter stitch. I like the faded denim-y look of this but I really don't need another blue scarf so it'll probably go in the gift box. It's always good to be ahead of the curve on Christmas presents.
And on to the "stay at home, pay attention to this" project: The carrot I was dangling in front of myself to finish the secret knitting, the reward for good behavior, the mate to the long suffering One Red Sock.
