Tiger Eye Lace Scarf

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.

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.

Fair Isle Cardigan

Finished up a new cardigan this weekend. I only ever made Fair Isle Vests as drop shoulder sweaters are very unflattering on me.

thank god for this muffler

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.
