Cannot decide on my next project

I am finishing up another simple lace scarf for a friend of my son. It is a lovely light grey fibre 100% mink. I should be done this weekend. Then I am either going to do Jared Flood's Rock Island Shawl or his Timberline Shawl Collared Cabled Cardigan. What does the group think and which would you like to see first.

Linen Scarf - over 1/2 way done!

Watching the Olympics and knitting. What a great combination and getting a lot done on my daughter-in-law's linen scarf. JRob

Linen Stitch Scarf - Detail

Evening All,

The scarf is coming along nicely. Using a size US6 needle. I really like the way the color combinations of the color ways I've selected are coming together. I think my daughter-in-law is really going to like it. JRob

Linen Stitch Scarf

Scarfs done in the linen stitch have been popular now for a while. Rather than being knitted back and forth across the width of the scarf these patterns are knitted along the scarf's length and in the round. The middle section is 20 plain knitted stitches and when finished you cut across the mid point of this section unravel and the braid the fringe .

Lovely Simple Lace Finished

Took it off the block and here it is. She is wearing it today when we go out. She would not model it so I've got it on on the picture. If you have never tried lace it is about as easy as it gets. Pattern was posted earlier. Give it a try! JRob

Lovely Simple Lace Being Blocked

I've completed the lovely simple lace spring scarf I've been working on. (See previous post on same title for pattern). Silk and cashmere - lovely fibre with a great feel. Soft and light weight. I blocked it today and it is drying. It will be off the rack tomorrow and I'll get a finished picture then. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I put a new scarf on the needles.

Lovely Simple Lace

Morning All, I've put down my son's herringbone scarf till he returns from university this week. He asked me not to get to far along with it until he can see it just in case he'd prefer a different stitch. So now it is sitting in the basket waiting for his OK. So what to do in the mean time. I love knitting lace. At first I was really intimidated by it.

Wife Surprised Me

Afternoon All, Well I spent the morning hard at work baking the first batches of Christmas Cookies while my lovely wife went to the salon, a local craft fair and mailed packages to family in Texas & New Jersey. Then I then took her out to lunch to one of our favorite spots and as we were close to one of my favorite knit shops she suggested we stop in.
