multitasking

Ah crochet, how I love it so? And yet, I can't seem to get myself to finish this one last project that has a pressing deadline. I'm going to do it. Really, I'm going to finish the project. Today. See, I'm going right now, after I eat a piece of pie and check my e-mail one more time.... The problem is that the project is not one that I was inspired to make spontaneously. This project was commissioned specifically, and so I am not as passionate about the idea as I normally would be. I'm going to do it. Today. Thursday is a holiday so I can't forget that and get myself into a shipping jam. Today. Today. Today. Later, today. Oh, it will be so great to have it done.

The good news is that the Special Olympics easy knit scarf with the massive size 13 needles is over two feet long at this point, though, unfortunately, it is curling. I tried to curb the curling by placing rows of garter stitch at the bottom and the right and left edges, but it is not working. Does anyone know what I should have done differently? I'm not going to frog it, or start over, but it might be nice to learn for the next time.
