I have finished L's scarf, and it is neatly wrapped and under the tree. I hope to convince her to let me take a pic with her wearing it to post for everyone (because I once again forgot to take a picture of a gift before wrapping it. This is becoming very typical.) The blocking really did fix the curling problem, thank goodness!

I now have a request from another friend of a friend to knit a scarf - should I take on another scarf endeavor? I believe so! What is it about knitting scarves that is so warm and comforting? I've actually been working on a scarf for the Red Scarf Project too; just a bias knit with Cascade 220. Not a big thrill, although it is my first bias knit.

T has requested more dishcloths. I've completed one out of Peaches N Cream,

and am starting another with Fantasy Naturale. Let me tell you, the latter is definitely not my favorite yarn to knit with. But, I've had it in my stash for quite some time, and it just needs to be used. I don't know if you can tell, but the dishcloth will have a specific pattern on it when I'm through. I want it to be a surprise for T, so in case he is reading this, I'm not giving out any more details!
