One FO and one WIP

Here is a current WIP photo of my Zarabel sweater. I'm on row 80 of the chart, getting somewhat close to the armholes. The yarn is great to work with (Berroco's Ultra Alpaca) and the cables and lace make it an interesting knit for me.

I finished Christopher's scarf today. It only took me 2 months because the only place I worked on it was at work, on break time. He says it's really warm, but not sure if he'll get much use out of it now that it looks like spring is finally here. But there is always next year! As long as he doesn't lose it between now and then.....

Another project finished....I'm on a roll!

I liked this pattern and Christopher needed a new hat since I accidentally felted the old one. I finished it in just over a week - which is a bit of a record for me, but then again, it is only a hat. It was a fun knit though. The yarn is Cascade 220 tweed and it took about 3/4 of a skein, size 6 needles.

Jon's scarf

I know, it takes me forever to finish something, but this one was only a month. (I tracked my progress on Ravelry.) This scarf is for my brother, Jon. I debated and debated on how long to make it. The pattern called for 71", Jon thought that was too long, but it's actually not as long as you'd think. I didn't actually measure the finished project, but I stopped the pattern when it measured 73".

I really like the pattern, and several people commented on it as well. So I may end up making more scarves like this at some point.
