I managed sneak in a full three tomatoes work on the scarf today. Each tomato being 25 minutes with a 5 minute break between, that’s basically an hour and a half of knitting, which netted me another nine inches on the scarf. I’m up to 40 inches of the needed 78, or another 6.5 hours of work to finish the scarf. Assuming I can manage at least two tomatoes (or an hour of knitting a day) I should be able to finish by Christmas with no problem.
The problem becomes making sure I get my two tomatoes a day and that they’re productive tomatoes. (Technically, according to Pomodoro technique they’re not actually completed Pomodoros unless they’re productive, meaning uninterrupted, but completed can still mean “didn’t knit fast enough to make goal.”)
If I’m realistic (ha!) I know I’m not going to get any tomatoes tomorrow. Maybe one if I get up at 5:00, but I don’t think I can realistically expect to get two. Saturday I’m pretty sure I can squeeze in a few extra tomatoes while working on house related projects. There are several house related things I’d like to get done before Christmas since people will be coming over on Christmas Eve, but some of the things I need to do are things like “make sure all the laundry is done and put away,” which is a multi-tasking sort of task.
It’s just not as exciting to watch this scarf grow as watching the Color Therapy Bruinen was. Those color changes made the crocheting fun.
This scarf is pretty, but it’s not exactly exciting to knit. It doesn’t seem to grow despite my actual knitting speed.
It is very satisfying to finally see it starting to measure up, though.
