The first is a scarf that I did. I wish it had been just a bit wider, but I still like how it turned out. It was a pretty easy pattern. I used two yarns, a big chunky yarn, and a small golden one to give it a little sparkle, thought I don't think it shows up in the picture. The pattern can be found here: http://stitchdcblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/cabled-scarf.html
It's late, otherwise I would've gotten Derek to take a picture of me wearing it. Instead you get it modeled by the computer chair.
The next project was a commission. My sister's, step-Mother-in-law's, Daughter's theme is sock monkey's for her daughter (get that?). She saw my sister Sharon ( sharon-c-thats-me. blogspot.com ) knitting a sock monkey hat which I had made for her daughter Jayne and wanted one for her daughter, but Sharon referred her to me. I got the pattern at Knitty.com. This time I made it in the original colors, but I've made them before in pink or blue depending on the gender of the baby. Anyway, if you are interested let me know and I'll make you one too. I charged her $28.
I had some extra yarn leftover so I made a second one, but smaller. More a newborn thru 1 year.
I've been really into knitting lately, so I'll try to keep up with the posting :)
