Warm hands, warm heads, warm hearts

Barbara was planning on making a scarf with this fingering weight yarn but it turned out to be too narrow and so "Plan B" has been initiated and it will be a headband instead. It will be lovely with those cables.
Today was a bit nippy out so she wore her hand knit cowl. I don't know about you but I love when the weather turns cold and I get the chance to wear all my shawls and scarves I've knitted over the years.
 Kathleen was absent the last three weeks so she brought many items that she finished over that time. She just kept pulling things out of her magic bag!
 First up was a warm woolen vest.
 These mittens will go into inventory for our future donations as they are probably too small for our current needs. 
 I like how the yarn makes a pattern on these matching woolies.
 These mittens will be just right for the ladies at the homeless shelter.
 Love that April Showers scarf.
 One of Kathleen's daughters gave her a set of light up knitting needles. I guess they come in handy if you have a knitting emergency when you're at the movie theater!
 We were busy bees tonight too.
 Maureen's cowl is very pretty with the two tone pattern.
 Beth showed us her Hanne Falkenberg sweater that she made from a kit. She said it took a year to make but when you take into account how many other things she knitted that year too it most surely didn't take the whole year.
 The sweater uses three colors of yarn held together for some rows and used singly for others to make this interesting texture. It's really pretty!
 Carole's scarf is growing longer while her cabled cowl awaits a quiet time so she can kitchener stitch the ends together.
 And Beth's scarf is progressing nicely too.
 I'm in the home stretch of my scarf also. There isn't much yarn left so it should be done by next week.
 I started a cabled cowl also. This has a provisional cast on so I can kitchener stitch it closed when it's long enough. Depending on how bored I get with it, that might be sooner than later! LOL!
But it has just enough going on in the pattern to hold my interest for now. And it's easy to knit when I'm a car passenger. 
Well, it's not too late so I think I'll get back to the striped scarf so I can finish it off before next week. Keep your needles clicking!
