sweater? Did I say sweater?

I don't recall calling my new blue and brown creation a sweater. Seriously, people a sweater in a week? Me? I think not. First of all I get distracted too easily to complete a swe - ooh look! shiny things! - ater in a month, let alone a week.

The pattern is not a sweater, but indeed a scarf. A beautiful scarf, both the pattern as written, and the yarns I used.

May I introduce my version of Just Enough Ruffles?

I love this pattern. Love, love, love it.
I'm becoming slightly obsessed with neckwear lately. Scarves and cowls are taking over my knitting life. (And b00bs too, but that's for a different reason).

Expect to see a whack of cowls on the needles soon.

Oh, and mittens. I've fallen in love with these - I mean really, wine and grape inspired mittens? Tell me that's not calling my name...

Blue and brown perfection. Has anyone else noticed that ruffles are everywhere this season? A plethora of ruffles. They are taking over the world.

That is a lovely scarf. If I wasn't engaged to - er -with EZ this year, I might hop on over and buy the pattern. In the queue for next year. Glad to hear about your MIL.

I love that pattern! It's been in my Ravelry Favorites for a long time. I'm just to cheap to buy it. lol Yours turned out great! Those mittens are cute too.

I must have mis-read what you typed... scarf/sweater, they both look the same to me.

It's lovely.

Me and KnitTech - we both read sweater. But you're still plenty fast!!!
Please, please, please bring the Ruffles to Guild Tuesday night - I am dying to get my hooks into it, I mean I am dying to have a look at it!
And I agree - the mitts are tempting.

Very nice scarf!!

I am just catching up on my google reader today, so I just read about your mother-in-law. I am glad to hear that she came through the surgery well. I hope that the pathology report is positive too.

Here is a good recipe (at least I think so!) For the freezer I recommend not including the pasta, I cook it and add it when I serve it. VERY yummy! The comments on the recipe pages have some other hints that people left.
