Now leaving Scarfland, population 1.

Whew. As cute as Harry Potter-style tube scarves are, remind me never to do two full-size ones at the same time again. Ack. So glad to be finished.

Rubby’s Sekrit Scarf: Blocked, fringed, monogrammed, and with its new owner in New York. He was thrilled with it, as, I hope, the ultimate recipient will be. I’m a sucker for young love.

Shelly’s School Spirit Scarf: Blocked, fringed, and delivered to a very happy sports-watchin’ mom.

On the Needles:
Yet another Sekrit Project: The yarn? Kelly Green Butterfly Super 10 cotton. Three point seven five out of seven squares complete, and if I hadn’t been wishing about my gauge on threes, I’d have five. I had to go up to fives to get the dang row gauge to work out.

Imprisoned in the craft nook:
Party-Time Apron: No change.
Devan: No change.
Sock: No change.
Lite Brite: No change.

In the hoop: (and gathering dust)
Merry Cox Sailor's Huswif: No change.
Joe and Sally Snow: No change.
Wedding Snowflake Hardanger: No change.
Floral afghan: No change.

Obligatory Cultural References
Reading: The Killer Angels, Michael Shaara. I had to read this book for AP History class waaaaaaay back when (1990/91), and remembered it being a good book, but not something I truly dug. Now its up for book club, and I’m reading it all over again. I’m hoping the story grabs me soon.
