Scarves everywhere

Yay! Barbara finished her Mistake Stitch Scarf! She didn't really take all that long but it always seems to take forever when you're in the middle of it. Now she has to weave the ends and it's ready for inventory.
Liz took her striped scarf home last week to get it started and she's off and running now. Last week we were just talking too much and she had a heck of a time with it. 
 Cinzia had to weave in ends on her finished Wingspan and then she added it to the inventory.
 Now she's working on a wavy scarf using short rows and Noro Kureyon and a solid wool, the name escapes me right now.
 Sofia joined us this week and will be a frequent visitor over the summer while school is out. She finished her baby hat and made the perfect little pompom for it.
 Now her DP's are flying through another project. And to think she is a beginner knitter!
 Thank you's go out to Gaye Holton for donating two lovely afghans to our inventory. She lives at a local assisted living facility and we love being the recipients of her handiworks.
 Carole blocked her Cabin Fever jacket and it looks beautiful. We were saying it looks like something little Prince George should be wearing. Her stitch definition on this is perfect.
 Maureen's slouchy hat grew many inches tonight.
 This is what it will look like when finished. Lovely cables!
 Nothing exciting to see here, just my two scarves. I was so bored with beige and white that last night I started....
 a pattern called Tubularity by Martina Behm. It is constructed on the bias as a long tube which you can wear like a cowl over your head or you can flatten the tube and wrap it around your neck like a scarf or shawl.
 These are some of the yarn remnants I've chosen to use for it. There will be bands of these colors on the bias along the scarf.
I'm looking forward to seeing this finished...who knows when?

Watching how the colors play out is great fun.

And I'm knitting a hat in that same vivid pink as in your bottom picture.

That bright pink is a Periwinkle Sheep yarn.
