Your greatness is not what you have, it's what you give.

Sometimes we get bored!

Barbara completed her mitten and hat set with a cheerful yellow yarn. These will be added to the collection for The Bus Stop Club along with the animals we've been making.
And now she is moving on to a warm winter man's hat in a deep, rich, forest green.
Here is Kathleen's finished cowl I showed you in progress last week.
She whipped one up in brown too.
Kathleen made this peachy sweater too. It's the same pattern Liz is working on in the mint green. She is still laboring over picking up those darn stitches for the button band. In the meantime, Kathleen started another peach cardigan, this time with a bright white button band. You can see it on the cushion beside the solid cardigan.
This looks like it will fit a toddler or preschooler. The yarn is very soft too.
Liz was not happy with this pattern. I'm sure she will not be knitting the button bands separately ever again!
Carole is almost finished with the cabled headband. Plymouth Encore yarn was a good choice for this one.
I finished the cowl from last week. It was supposed to be a poncho but I couldn't tolerate all those rows of garter stitch so luckily, it works beautifully as a cowl.
Last night Maureen, Carole, Dorah, and I were complaining  discussing how we all feel a sense of ennui with our knitting lately. Maybe because we are all knitting scarves which seem to take forever or maybe it's spring fever. I don't know about them, but I feel a serious case of startitis coming on! I guess I'll just have to put this ripple scarf aside while I follow doctor's orders and take the cure.
Since I finished the cowl, I started Sectores last night.
I like a high contrast color story and chose these two yarns for my scarf.
I started the second color section this afternoon.
This should stave off boredom for the time being. What do you do when you get bored with your knitting project?
