In progress...

For some reason, I just started 2 scarves at the same time - both with natural color yarn - a little boring, but soft, pretty and oh so practical! I saw both of these scarves on Kay's blog (From The Back Yard) last winter and got the patterns, but wasn't able to start them because of my shoulder.

I want to knit another sweater, but have an unalterable rule about only having 1 sweater on the needles at a time. SO....I pulled out Tangled Yoke and spent the afternoon trying to figure out where I was when I stopped last January. Of course it wasn't easy - I had stopped right in the middle of a row in the middle of the tangled cable. I now have my bearings and should be able to get this done soon.

I haven't finished machine quilting the bali scrap quilt, but I couldn't wait to try making a few of these stars for the next quilt. Now back to manhandling the bali quilt through my sewing machine...

Lastly - I started and ripped some Cat Bordhi Woven Ridge Socks. I love the pattern, but I used the yarn (Artyarns Handpaint Stripes) that she used, and they were way to thick and stiff for me on 3mm needles - since I don't want to abuse my shoulder, I decided it was better to rip and have this beautiful yarn in hand for something else.

I also have the Journey Cable socks going, but haven't made enough progress for another picture - maybe next time!
