Midwest Moonlight...

I got started on my scarf last night. I finally found the right yarn! First I used wool, and it was too thick. Then I used some RYC Cashsoft, but it was too pink. This Cascade Sierra is perfect... the yarn and color is just what I was looking for. Here's a little progress pic....

I think I'm definitely going to have fun knitting this scarf, and hopefully I can keep it from ending up in the UFO pile like a lot of my other scarves! Bradley (my 5 year old) asked me to make him some gloves today. Awe... how sweet. I think I'll have to make him some mittens. I just can't see me making those teeny tiny fingers, yes it will definitely be mittens!! :) Write more later....

edited to add:
I just ordered an early birthday present for me! I have been wanting to knit this sweater for a long time....

Debbie Bliss Moss Stitch and Cable Jacket (from book #3).

Well the yarn it calls for - Cotton Silk Aran has been discontinued. So while I was at Why Knot Knit yesterday I did some research. I wanted a denim color in the right weight and I found number 205. They had it in Cashmerino and regular Merino. Both very pretty. So I went online to research some more and saw that had both. I decided to to go with the Merino...

Hopefully it looks good!! This is my early Birthday present to me!! I'll be 31 November 1st. Now to find that book... I know it's around here somewhere!!! ;)
