Almost!

Kari-Bak Scarf

My Kari-Bak Scarf  Rav_link in the Opal Hundertwasser has been "finished" for a while.  It still needs a bath and blocking...

...and I won't really be able to wear it 'til I weave in those ends.

Traveler Mitts

The lovely fingerless mitts Rav_link are also almost there -- a quick seaming is all they need.  (Gah!  I was too lazy to pull out the DPNs, the straights were right there!)  It's getting colder and colder here -- my wonderful new shadow[]box Rav_link has been a constant companion -- and those mitts will be a very welcome addition.  (The word "snow" reluctantly fell from the weatherman's lips last night -- there's a possibility on Sunday-into-Monday.)  Getting these two projects in wearable shape will be a weekend goal!

Colonnade Shawl

Of course, I started something new.  This is Colonnade from Knitty.  I'm lovin' Stephen West's designs Rav_link!

Colonnade Shawl

I've used a single skein of Noro Cash Iroha for the solid color stockinette portion; I believe it was one of the prizes in a stash sale package I purchased from Norma a while back.  Apparently, my stash is incomplete without a few hanks of Silk Garden -- I'd recently picked up these two, and another of a different colorway, with a striped scarf in mind, but I'm thinking this is way better.  We've been slammed by fall and I am in great need of warm -- I'm thinking coverage, here, and shawl is trumping scarf!

Comments

Lots of pretty colors here, Vickie! And, hey.....the projects are great, too.

Your Kari-Bak looks great! I'm almost done with my Baktus, but I'm gifting it so no photos for a while. I'm totally into Stephen West's designs too -- they are really neat!

Gorgeous colors!

Love the Kari-Bak idea, those are such happy colors.
