Knitting on a scarf

I've almost finished the lined Malabrigo hat for DH, and have started (what? UFOs and she's starting NEW projects? What gives!!??) a scarf in Manos del Uruguay (or is it Malabrigo?) Stonechat. The 1x1 rib is perfect for a simple scarf that doesn't curl like stockinette would. I will have a hard time parting with it!

No pics, sorry. Life is just too Too at the moment. But I did get to Seattle last weekend to a conference and then to visit with DS Kate and my step-mom and step-sister (neither of them evil!). That was a welcome respite, and DSM is doing really well after serious surgeries for her Parkinson's--Deep Brain Stimulation surgery. It has done wonders for her. We have gotten back our "mom" of three years ago, after a steady decline that left her without facial expressions, frozen in her body. She feels let out of prison. Miracles can be performed in 2007, hallelujah! Also got to spend time finally with my jewel of a niece, Leonie, for whom I made the cape and hat last winter--and which she wore this past weekend! A knitter's moment of deep pleasure, seeing what I made her fitting and happily worn. 8^)

Cheers and happy knitting!
