Finally a finished project!

Well today I managed enough energy to weave the ends on my Filipi Scarf, designed by Tamara Del Sonno from the book 101 Yarn-Shop Favorites One-Skein Wonders, Edited by Judith Durant. The scarf that I knit is on page 29. I used the Misti International, Misti Alpaca Chunky, 100% baby alpaca color I used VR1440 Forest Green. The scarf in the photo is 2L474 Yellow. The yarn is great very soft. The pictures I post just don't seem to capture the color very good but its close. The scarf is not difficult too knit. The worse part for me was the ending ruffle. Increasing back out to 64 stitches. I had a lot of help from Jane Lackey a friend a fellow co-worker. I knit a few rows on one of my bias scarves I have on needles. Finished reading Dead Until Dark The First Sookie Stackhouse Novel, by Charlaine Harris. The HBO Series True Blood is based on the Sookie Stackhouse Series. It was a great book and I am on the waiting list at the library for the second book in the series. While I am waiting I have gone back to Knit Two it is Kate Jacobs sequel to A Friday Night Knitting Club. Well Monday is looming and I want to read a little more before I go to bed.

That scarf is beautiful. I love the color. It looks cute on the doll. I had one of those doll heads and tried so many hairstyles on her and LOVED it as a child. :)

Thanks for your comment on my doily.
