Garter stitch monogamy

I started Scott's birthday present yesterday. Back in September Dennis & I went to the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool festival. I bought to patterns; both by Steven West. I got the clockwork scarf & daybreak shawl patterns.

I had decided on colors for Scott's clockwork as well as one for my dad. Apparently my brain took a vacation when ordering yarn because I ordered the colors I was going to do my dad's clockwork in. I'm almost done with the first section & it needs to be done by February 4th.

Before I started the clockwork scarf, I got a bee in my bonnet about knitting a Christmas tree skirt. Oh yes, I can now use it as a lap blanket while knitting on it. I didn't expect it to be done before Christmas. I put it aside to knit Scott's gift. I will more than likely go back to it when the clockwork is done.
