There will be warmth

Kathleen finished the set on which you saw her progress over the last few weeks. This will make a nice warm ensemble to keep cozy.
Carole's neck warmer looks warm too! The yarn is soft and not at all itchy which is a number one requirement for all of us. We like to test it by the "cheek test". If it scratches our face it just won't work! 
Dorah finished a stranded neck warmer and now has to block it. We discussed the issue of the edges curling and hoped a good blocking will solve the ruffled effect. Dorah did a beautiful job of knitting this. I don't think I have the energy to concentrate on a chart to do that.
 Beth started a man's hat. The stitch definition in that yarn is really nice.
 And Carole also finished a pair of fingerless mitts with a pretty lace pattern.
 Dorah is coming down to home plate on her blue scarf! A big button added to one end will make it a nice neck warmer option too.
 Maureen put the finishing stitches on another pair of slipper socks for the inventory.
 I was only a week late finishing up a scarf for my son's birthday. The reversible stripes are fascinating and the pattern is free if you are a member of Ravelry.
We will be wrapping up this quarter's projects in the month of February and can't wait to start the next project. Tune in soon for some info about the fun we will be having.

Beautiful work, and I'm glad it's soft, too.
