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

Mmmm! Warm Woolies!

Last night there were just four of us. Dorah zoomed through the start of a hat using Lamb's Pride yarn. Once she found her escaping ring markers there was no stopping the woman!
 Beth and Maureen made lots of progress on their scarf and cowl, respectively. My guess is that they are almost finished with both.
 I took a class on Saturday for this cowl call Foolproof. It states in the pattern there is no casting on stitches, no binding off stitches, just straight garter stitch knitting with increases and decreases. This designer is a genius! I can't wait to finish it!
  I tend to be a stress knitter. What I mean by that is if I need a gift for someone I wait until the last minute for the stress of gift buying to inspire me to knit something. Sometimes that's good, sometimes not so much. This time it works though.
 My go-to pattern for fancy fingerless mitts is Cafe au Lait. I had some aqua Oh So Fine Sock Yarn left over from my Murphy Catkin and decided to use some of it for these mitts. I love the interlocking pattern. I might have to knit another pair for myself to go with Murphy.
 The past few weeks I've been showing you progress on my Mini Mochi Noro Striped Scarf and now it's finished. I love the progression of colors.
Well, enough dilly dally-ing for me. I have tons to knit with a few deadlines which HAVE to be met! Have a great week and I'll see you next time.

Love the Noro!

But am puzzled on the Foolproof: don't you have to, like, y'know, start *somewhere*?
