I wish I had a clever title...

Knitting binge this week, inspired by cooler weather and fueled by Halloween candy. (Milky Ways are my weakness. Or at least one of my weaknesses.)

In the "FINISHED" column ...

Garter Loop-Through Scarf, designed by Marci Richardson.
From the 101 Designer One Skein Wonders book, edited by Judith Durant.
Yarn: Mistletoe Farm's sport weight alpaca

Victorian Scarf, designed Kerin Dimeler-Laurence.
Available for free from Knitpicks.com.
Yarn: Mistletoe Farm's sport weight alpaca

In the "ALMOST FINISHED" section:
  1. Cat's Paw scarf -- just a few more repeats
  2. Wedge scarf -- possibly just one more repeat, yarn is almost done
And in the "I REALLY NEED TO GET BACK TO THIS BEFORE I FORGET WHAT I WAS DOING SECTION," my Entwined Shoulder Shawl. I divided for the neck and then put it down to work on the Halloween costume. Now that temperatures are dropping, it seems more appealing to work on it.

Have a great weekend --

  1. You've been busy! And all of it looks great. I'm especially loving the yarn on the garter-loop-scarf thingy. Beautiful! Best of luck getting to know your shawl again.

  3. Oh I have done the put it down and then forgot the heck what I was doing on it. Even worse is when my marked up pattern gets separated from the knitting and I am frantically hunting hunting it down! If I haven't already, i'm going to go queue up that garter loop through scarf. I love it!

  5. Marushka, Your scarves are beautiful, and I giggled at your being "fueled by Halloween candy" as I was just thinking of dipping into the candy in order to get through the housecleaning today!

  6. I love it! I haven't had a Milky Way in a long time. I love Snickers bars too much. I have a weakness for peanuts.

  9. Lovely all! Good luck in getting the other items done. I am under the gun on a few items and worried my index finger just won't take the strain of more knitting. Time for anti-inflammatory meds and rest!

  11. I love the style of your Garter Loop Scarf. The colour of your Victorian scarf is almost making me drool... or maybe the drool is cause now I'm thinking about a Milky Way bar : )

  13. Both of those scarves are so beautiful, and in such different ways---the loop-through scarf (and I really love a good keyhole scarf, it's such a practical and interesting design) looks so cozy-warm and lush, and the Victorian scarf is so delicate and elegant! Excellent FOs both. :D

    And best of luck getting back to the shawl before you lose track of the pattern!

  17. Nice finishes!! Pick that other one back up! I hate when I wait too long and it takes a while to get back into the groove of a pattern.
