Art Fiber Mohair Scarf

One project I was able to finish while I was on a partial yarn hiatus was the Art Fiber Mohair Scarf.

I don't think I've shown it anywhere on the blog before, except in the "Current Projects" on the right sidebar. It's made with yarn from Art Fibers in San Francisco. Such a yummy store!

Some friends, my sister and I are all having a Holiday Sale/Party in November and I think this scarf will go to that. My sis and I will sell handknits, my friend Maile will sell these great bags she makes and my friend Brandi will sell these amazing cards and printed material she creates. I'll provide more details as the event gets closer for any of you who'd like to come. It should be a fun party even if you don't have any shopping to do.

Giant Pink Bunny

A friend sent me this article on a giant pink bunny that was eretcted on a mountainside in Italy.

Giant Pink Bunny on Mountainside in Italy

My personal favorite line in the article is where it says,

Viennese art group Gelatin designed the giant soft toy and say it was "knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool".

And you wonder why people think knitting is a hobby for old ladies! But hey, at least it's pink, which I hear is the new black.

Pitiful Pity Party

That word just about describes my "knitting" life right now.

Pitiful that it's been over a month since I've blogged.
Pitiful that I've only been able to knit about three times during this time.
Pitiful that I still haven't completed M & K's Blanket.

Ok, enough of the Pity Party. I have made a bit of progress on the blanket.

M & K's Blanket in Progress

I have to get it completed before the end of October so that they can enjoy it during the end of Fall and in Winter when they might actually get to use it. Yesterday was my three-year wedding anniversary so my DH and I are going away for an extended weekend. Hopefully I'll get some knitting time then.
