Starting over

Everyone started new projects today.
 Liz started a Noro Striped Scarf... 3 times. It was one of those days where talking and knitting don't mix. Once she got home to a quiet house she started it again and was off and running.
  Cinzia started a Wingspan with a solid and a gradient yarn. This is going to
            be spectacular.           
 Elaine started a hat. The ribbing is 1X1 but the knit stitches are knit through the back loop giving it a more defined, almost raised stitch.     

 I blocked my Cathedral Scarf which I made for myself. I used Karin's yarn called The Rising of the Moon.
Elaine finished her baby blanket which will go into storage for the next baby donations since we dropped off our latest donation earlier. This is the reverse side and it looks as nice as...
      the front side. The yarn is a machine washable, soft acrylic.
 I started a Mistake Stitch scarf since I finished the scarf I showed you last week. I shouldn't have chosen to knit two beige scarves in a row though. I need something colorful now!
 Dorah started this scarf last week as the Reversible Stripes Scarf which has vertical stripes on one side and horizontal stripes on the other. But after many starts and stops she opted to make a simple Noro Stripe Scarf instead. You know my motto, if it's not fun, don't do it!
 Carole started a Palindrome after seeing mine and feeling inspired. Since the yarn and needle are a lighter weight than what I used she added another cable to widen it.
 Maureen decided to start her slouchy hat over again too. Her original choice of yarn was too light weight for gauge so she switched to a worsted weight and now it's on track again.
We Chicks are hoping to make these items to leave around town next fall as the season turns cold so anyone who needs the warmth can grab what they need when they see it. Now we just have to find a good place to stash the items.
