I'm still working on the fan shawl and the green and orange scarf, but I had to start something new this week, too. I love the Zauberball from Schoppel-Wolle. I made socks from a blue ball a couple years ago and decided to finally break into the rainbow-colored one (called frische Fische) that I bought at the same time. The pattern is Multnomah (more details on Ravelry). I have no idea how large (or small) this is going to be - might be more of a shawlette, but in either case, I think I know who I'm going to give it to.
