this and that

this is the morning surf scarf all blocked. the colors are stunning, it drapes quite nicely around the neck..... i'm just not in love with it. i wish i had a reason, but i don't.

it did work up fast. i think the next one will be shawl/wrap size. that is one of the nice things with this pattern.... lots of options.

and the abrazo vest from fall issue. the yarn was my trip purchase at webs, cascade revolution. i was able to modify the front straps and also adjust the width on the upper back. it fits like a dream and was super easy to knit. even the modifications were painless. i'll be doing another soon for eldest child (she wants it in blue) and i still dream of doing it in handspun.

next on the needles, a sweater/jacket for mother. she needs to let go of a ratty one, so hope to replace it with one from my hands.
