The scarf is almost finished! I'll keep going a little bit farther, but I'm past the 375 yard mark (by weight). Then there's a beaded bind off at each end, blocking and done! So far I haven't hit a stockinette wall, but I've also only knit on this in front of the TV and around other people, when things are going on. It might have been different if I was knitting this quietly.
I think I've chosen my project for Project 2, but I'm not going to share yet - just in case I change my mind between now and July 1.
In the meantime, Max seems to have completely adjusted to his new food location - he had a good weekend and didn't give me any more drama.
