After our 7 1/2 hour drive home to Charlotte, I had a random knitting itch.  I decided on a doggy scarf for Karma, using a red boucle yarn combined with a thinner variegated yarn in red, white and green.  I cast on 4 stitches using size 17 needles, and since I only know the garter stitch (all knitting, all the time), it went pretty quickly.   I think it turned out to be around 18″ long, including an inch or so of fringe on each end, and probably took an hour start to finish.  The perfect instant gratification project!
