Some FO's for inventory (that's Finished Objects)

I had a little trouble with the blog this morning but hopefully it is up and running completely fine now.
Beth brought a finished hat to group last night. This will be added to the inventory going to New York Oncology and Hematology for patients undergoing chemo treatments.
She also picked up a shawl that was started by our friend Karin and is finishing it for her. This will go into the same inventory as the hat.
Maureen is about halfway through the second fingerless mitt for our same donation.
I think she got the pattern free online.
Carole spent a little time weaving in the ends on her finished scarf and then started a hat.
The scarf is finished. She used Jojoland Melody yarn, a color-changing yarn in a sport weight.
My friend Elise gave me some hanks of yarn with no labels and after and hour and a half of untangling them I was able to roll them into balls to make this lovely scarf called Frostlight. It was a free pattern on Ravelry. So if you are a member you're lucky enough to have access to this pattern.
I liked the lace of Frostlight so much I decided to try my hand at making it into a triangular shawl. After an initial few inches of plain stockinette stitch I incorporated the lace pattern to make this pretty little shawlette which will also be donated to the NYOH.
And the yarn was donated to our group from Karin. It was purchased to support The Honeysuckle Project for breast cancer research.
 I like this so much I just might have to make one for me too!

Yay! You got your blog back! I was worried there.

I am sorry that the yarn was in such a state! The beautiful scarf makes up for it though! Glad the blog is back up and running!
