Finally some knitting pictures

My newest WIPs are in preparation for winter. I need to finish up some gifts and get started on two others, but I am feeling selfish about my knitting right now. So the first one is Foliage. I don't have a circular in the correct length to do it on one set of needles so I am using two. Actually I do have the correct length, just not in my possession at the moment. Using two helps me keep my place, but I had to steal a set from Wicked, so no knitting on it right now. I think I am finally back on track with the leaf pattern. There were a few issues initially, but it's going better now. The yarn is the last skein of the purple heather Cascade 220 I bought for my first pair of Fetching and also used in the latest pair. I had to dip into the second skein for the second pair.

See that bag in the corner? It's from Piddleloop on Etsy. I love knitting pirates! I hear there is going to be another one in fabric that is my favorite colors. I may need it. I always need more project bags! Right? Especially when they are made by such cool people. They put a bunch of fun extras in there the package too.

My more recently started WIP is a scarf. The pattern is My So-Called Scarf. I am using Malabrigo as the pattern calls for. Gorgeous yarn. It is so soft and the colors are beautiful. The colors are a little darker in real life. I think this pic is a little more accurate on the colors. I am using needles a size smaller than the pattern calls for, but the width of my scarf is about the same as others knit with the larger needle. I must be knitting looser due to the bamboo needles.

I tried baking that cake again last night, and while it isn't as odd tasting as the first try, this one doesn't even taste like chocolate. It is really bland. I don't trust all the rave reviews about it anymore. Time for a new cake!

Update: I bought the bag! I was honestly wishing I had one more large one yesterday because I had to take one project out so I could put in another one. I guess I could just finish stuff, but what's the fun in that!

[sheepish] I really just ought to ask for my own set of needles for Christmas.

Your projects look great! I love the So Called Scarf, and I've made it twice. I'd love to cast on for Foliage, but I just have so much to knit already!

I like the colors of the so-called scarf. That should come out really nicely! (or it might be done, I'm catching up again and reading backwards)
