To answer the questions that were asked about the pictures from the KAL, the top picture, also shown here finished, is Susan's Scrunchy Scarf in Malabrigo's sport weight Arroyo in the Chispas color. Heather knit this one wider than the pattern calls for and used all of two skeins- it's the kind of scarf that would definitely keep the wind out of your collar in the winter, especially at this width. It will be on display as a store sample if you want to get a closer look.
The other question that was asked was about the color in the last photo. Is Archangel in Sock. The sun through the window made the color more bright and brought out the orange in that photo. Liz is knitting the Lepidoptera Mitts and I hope she's farther along than I am b/c I haven't gotten much more completed than I did on that day! I'm knitting the same mitts in Pocion, and at this rate I'll be lucky to get done by Mother's Day. I haven't had much knitting time this week as it seems that everyone in my house has a cold. I'm trying to cure mine with orange juice and vitamin D, and Henry's nose is getting the snot sucked out every few hours with the dreaded booger-sucker. Did you use one of those on your kids? The bulbus rubber sucker that makes kits cringe every time they see it?
Our next day (and perhaps last) for this KAL is this Sunday, Dec 2. E-mail me if you want to join us. We sit and chat and knit and laugh- it's a great way to spend a couple hours! One of us is knitting this scarf and I'm really looking forward to seeing it progress. We have store hours tomorrow, Saturday, so even if you haven't started something yet, you have a day to pick something out.
