I started out with a sock.
A sock that was so big, I could have simply knit arm holes and worn it as a sweater. I mean, look at that thing! It's laying on an 8.5 x 11 notebook and the width of the sock practically covers it. I don't know how I didn't notice its hugeness while I was knitting the leg.
Anyway, I ate a bowl of Cheetos and drank a glass of wine, (It's okay to have wine with antibiotics. I looked it up!) took a deep, calming breath and frogged it.

And now it looks like this. It magically turned into a Simple Yet Effective scarf.
As much as I despise frogging gone-wrong projects, (I much prefer to curse them and toss them into the trash rather than suffer the pain of frogging.) I'm not really minding re-knitting this yarn. It's wonderful to work with. It's soft, it has great stitch definition and its Christmasy colorway is muted enough that it only whispers Christmas rather than yelling it at me. It's fairly easy to pretend I'm knitting a rose garden instead of a Christmas candy cane. Oh, I guess I failed to mention - the yarn's name is Winter's Candy Cane and it hails from Puff the Magic Rabbit.
I don't know why there are so few projects on Ravelry using Puff the Magic Rabbit yarns. Perhaps it is more of a hobby business. I bought my skein from a fiber festival but I see that they do have an Etsy shop that's been in business since 2007. Whatever, I wouldn't hesitate to knit future projects with their yarns. This 100% superwash merino, particularly, is a joy to knit with.
