I made through my pattern problems and finally finished the Tiger Eye Lace Scarf. It's in Malabrigo sock with size 5 needles. It went amazingly fast but blocked a lot longer then it was supposed to.
Just wanted to share some pictures of the creature I just finished this Thanksgiving evening.
I am so happy that I wanted to share with you ...
I'm waiting this time till one years....

Since having begun knitting and crocheting this summer, I have found that it is a wonderful way to pass the time on my hour-long subway commute.
Well, it's not knitting, but weaving...
Yeah, like my Scottish blood will have me take my hands off of the knitting needles only briefly to talk about weaving -- tartans, that is.
Finished up a new cardigan this weekend. I only ever made Fair Isle Vests as drop shoulder sweaters are very unflattering on me.
For my friend Tia for her birthday. Modeled beautifully as a shawl by Nicci of Close Knit Yarn Store on Alberta in Portland, OR.

It makes a fabulous "aroma filter" when the homeless guy decides to sit at the table next to mine at the wi-fi cafe. I probably look like I'm trying to avoid swine flu.
