Meanwhile, here is the status of the WIPs.

This scarf (based on Jared Flood's Noro Striped Scarf) is about a third complete. The red Kauni is finally start to show shifts in color, and I'm finally getting adept at handling the color changes.

This second scarf (based on Jackie Lauseng's Hurdle Stitch Scarf) is about 2/3 complete. This is the project that I carry when Jim & I are out and about - it's easy to knit a couple rows here and there, and it is slowly moving towards completion. I'll donate this scarf to the Red Scarf Project.

Jim gave me this yarn - Plymouth Jelli Beenz - for Christmas. It wanted to belong to a baby, so I'm using it for Ingrid Aartun Bøe's Pine Forest Baby Blanket. The yarn color is pretty busy, but I think the pattern still shows up nicely on the blanket.

Look! I finally finished the first mitten (Laura Linneman's pattern, Mittens for Me!). I'm going to knit the second mitten in opposite colors - brown for the strands on the cuff; green for the body; brown for the thumb. With any luck, I'll finish the second mitten before winter...

My Free and Easy Pie Wedge Shawl (designed by Lorna Miser) is coming along nicely: I've almost finished three of the six wedges, the fabric is soft and has a lovely drape, the colors are rich. I'm eager to finish this one, but alas - it will be awhile...
