WIP: Amazing Multicolored Neck Blanket, Part II

The Neck Blanket, she is growing!  My yarn is almost all through the freezing process, so I was able to start knitting or winding the rest of the colors that are left.  (Still to go: charcoal grey, light turquoise, deep turquoise, deep green, and emerald.  This thing is going to be massive.)  We've been on a movie kick lately, so I've been spending a lot of time with the Neck Blanket covering me from feet to chest, knitting away while watching Kubrick, Tarkovsky, and Adventure Time.

As I work on it, I'm reminded of the simple pleasure of knitting & purling; of the texture of different yarns as they move through my fingers.  When I first sit down to knit on it, I sometimes feel antsy or uncomfortable, and I start mentally compiling vast lists of chores and assignments and worries that I should take care of instead.  But as time goes on, the work takes hold of things.  It forces me to sit still, let my brain quiet down, and allow my warm toes and hands to bask in the joy of the Neck Blanket.
