Holdoff project

I am using this afghan as a "holdoff" project hoping that by the time I am finished with it I will have worked up the courage to try to knit myself a sweater. A cabled fisherman type would be very cool.

Rehab project

As my hand heals from a surgery to correct the pain I was experiencing since February of this year, I decided to knit this scarf. I did this when it became bearable enough to pick up the needles again. Still a little pain but getting better every day. I did this also because I knew I would be laid up after having foot/toe surgery to relieve that irritating pain whenever I walk and run.
