I have several projects going on right now. Let me tell you about two of them.
First is the pretty, pretty Miquon Wrap:
Mine is charcoal heather where the model is grey, and will be gold where the model is blue.
Second is the Beignet scarf from Berroco:
There are ribbing panels scattered in with the garter stitch ones. Mine is being made with yarn Twinnie gave me some time ago: deep, dark purple with gold sparklies. Do you remember that, Twinster?
I tell you about these two because, since they're both items where gauge is not important, I went for color choice and wound up with fingering yarn to make both. Plus, they're both uncomplicated pattern-wise --- perfect for working on while watching football. Except the small yarns and their corresponding small needles have made them so boring. And the boredom has led to Startitis, looking for more exciting things to make. Open vistas and all that.
You know what I'm talking about. . .
