Boston Blue

The Boston Blue Scarf (see my Ravelry page for details), intended as a Christmas present for someone who will put it to good use this winter, is off the needles, photographed and ready for shipping. We have one more item for the package that will be ready toward the end of the week. Then down to the UPS store...and off it all goes! The scarf was made with Rowan Lima (baby alpaca) and was a delight to knit. I would definitely make another - but have too many other projects underway to tackle another just now.

Greg and I spent the late afternoon listening to Pete Christlieb's band play a benefit for the Friends of the Library in South Pasadena and then went to Briganti for dinner. It couldn't have been a better day.

Here is a sample of Pete's sound:

Walden Pond Hat

This is a shot of the top of what just came off the needles a few hours ago. All of the ends are now neatly woven in and it is ready to be put into a mailer. The colors reminded me of the previous post's pictures of Walden Pond. Thanks to Shibui Yarns, someone will have a cheery hat to wear!

Another project that is trudging along - LuLu Leggings from Spud and Chloe.
Because I have been working all week, the leggings are neglected...too hard for my little brain to do all that counting with customers, visiting friends and students. No complaints...just excuses!!!
