Finished items - 4 of them!!

I calculated that I was in airports or on airplanes for 22 hours last week. Add on 3 nights in a hotel room and I got a lot of knitting done! The top photo shows two scarves. The one on the left was the one I started when I had my teaching lesson for my two co-workers. It's a moda dea yarn that I bought at Michael's. Nice colors. So nice in fact, that I realized I bought a different yarn in almost the exact same color scheme to make the Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. This is a mohair but not Rowan - can't remember the brand. Not sure what I'll do with either of these scarves. Possibly, they'll end up in Christmas gift exchanges. Quick quiz.... Guess what Bonnie's two favorite colors are?....... Oh My! Did you guess pink and purple? You ARE clever!

The next photo is the Jester hat from Lion Brand yarns (pattern available on line for purchase) made with Cottonease popsicle, orangeade and vanilla. I have started the sweater and it's working up very fast (see previous post.) This ensemble will be for my co-worker who is delivering on December 28th. (The model is my childhood stuffed animal. He has seen better days!)

I also finished my Good Bias Shrug but haven't taken a picture of it yet.
