I am not kidding. Knitting stripes must be extremely healthy. And when I knit them in colors bubbles of spring floats from my toes and all the way up to the sky. I get so happy knitting stripes. It must be that mindless color flow of stitches and the freedom to choose exactly the colors I love.

I did a picot cast on in green and continued in orange and magenta. I found out that four rows of each color made a more harmonic scarf than only two rows of each.
Also, the colors comes out very different after how many rows of them there are.
When half the scarf was finished I added more green and continued in turquoise and purple.
I did a picot bind off. That green color sort of bind the whole scarf together. I loved knitting this - totally mindless and in colors that made me so happy.
So, I do as I very often do - make a bracelet in polymer clay to go with it. I like those colorful accessories to go with my knitted garment. It make a little sparkle to it all. Never underestimate the joy in small things.
I find I´m so excited that I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it´s the excitement only a free man can feel. A free man at a start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain
