This is a 'mac & me' pattern found at kpixie.com simply called #050 Ruffle Scarf. Knit in Blue Sky Alpaca/Silk, sport weight. Seems more like a fingering weight to me but oh so soft! It will look nice with my black wool jacket. The scarf section is a k2p2 rib and since I 'throw' the yarn it makes for a slow knit. I couldn't wait to add the ruffle so I put the working end on a holder and added the ruffle! (pick up stitches on the cast on end) Hopefully soon to be finished.

Rules are: To open the book I am reading, turn to page 161 and copy the fifth sentence on the page! This definitely gives you a teenie tiny glimpse! So here goes, But what you do sometimes get are choice little annotations that are included to give background to a particular book's subject (and to justify what is often a lofty price. Your glimpse is from Warmly Inscribed, The New England Forger and Other Book Tales by Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone. I love this couples books!
Now I am to tag 5 others, Here are some readers I know, Abiding, Storybook Woods, Robin (the librarian!), Vaughanville. This is hard you know some folks don't like this sort of thing. I need one more, Textile Fusion(she even writes books!).

Treat yourself to something as simple and elegant as a lacy facecloth. If you are so fortunate to have a friend that makes fabulous soaps, get some!

I'm sure honoring someone that we don't know can be done in many, many ways. I found a way to honor a woman that has given her life for my freedom at this website The Mother's Day Project Granted it's not much but as I stitched her name I was able to pray for her husband and family members she left behind. This is 1st Lt. Jaime L. Campbell.
She was 25 years old, of Ephrata, Wasington. She was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 207th Aviation Regiment, Alaska Army National Guard, Anchorage, Alaska.; killed Jan. 7 when a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed near Tal Afar, Iraq. She was a pilot in the Army National Guard and a member of the Arctic Eagles of Alaska. Her husband Sam Campbell is a captain in the Army and was in Iraq when she died. Her parents, Miki and Jeff Krausse, live in Ephrata.
I'm honored to have taken part in recognizing Jaime in this small way.

Then a summer top by Sirdar in their leaflet #5872 which is out of print and I can't find it anywhere on the Internet. It's a sleeveless ribbed mock turtleneck. I'll be knitting it with Cabin Fever's Cotton Tweed in cherry red.
I was needing some projects that required a bit less concentration and I could take 'on the go'. My Kinsale is just not that kind of knit. I'll be finished with hubby's sock shortly although I did cast on for that vest last night and I think it will be a quick knit! So there you have it, my sale haul. I'm happy!
