Ack! Distracted by Socks!

I've been knitting socks again - they're so much quicker than the scarves and shawls! I've also been working on this eternal project. Despite the fact that according to Ravelry I started this in 2009, I'm going to include it in my 11, since I started it again (for the fourth time) at Christmas, after we'd decided on the 2011 goal. Otherwise, I'm afraid I'll never finish it! The only question now is whether or not I need to buy another skein or two of the yarn (DROPS Alpaca) now that I've made the scarf much wider than originally planned in order to be able to work it on a circular needle...

First scarf finished!

First finished, but this one I started second... The fisherman´s rib is just too slow, so I had to knit something quicker. This cabled scarf is Novita Puro, the pattern is in the Novita magazine fall 2009 issue. Super easy! Used four scanes of yarn and the scarf is 2,20 cm long.

One Down, Ten to Go!

I finished my first of the scarves/shawls today! I like this effect (and the drape), but am not in love with the Puro Batik yarn. It's for a friend who's allergic to wool, though, so I hope she will like it! (I did decide to crochet around the edges in the end, despite my lacking crochet skills.)

I'm out of yarn at the moment for the Fan Shawl and am going to use that as an excuse to start a new project. Now the trouble is deciding which one...
