Hot Feet! Hot Feet!

Just for you I trekked outside to the car and retrieved the camera, although I suppose it is really for me so that you don't stop loving me :) It managed to migrate out of the laptop bag and into the knitting bag.

Here is the Alpaca scarf in all its squishy glory:

And here is how much yarn was left over after I worked in the ends:I think that might be a knitting record. I know it is a personal best. The scarf is short, but very, very warm and very, very squishy. I just loved to pat it. It is now in a box winging its way to a mystery location. *bwahahah*

Here is the new scarf. It is actually longer than this now, and coming along nicely. I made it a little narrower than the alpaca one, so I should get more length (I also had 77 more yards in this skein). I spun the colors in little "puffs" in order by color, so it is making stripes that are more or less orderly. The colors are burgundy, hunter green and navy blue which were all the rage a few years ago when I was in college. I feel like there is a good name for this scarf right on the tip of my tongue, but it just won't come out. Yuppie? Trendy? Smithie? New Englandy? Help is appreciated.

That is all the knitting news that is fit to print. My only big adventures today were returning my overdue library books and paying the overdue light and gas bills.

That teeney tiny bit of left over yarn is amazing! lol I love that you posted that picture. The scarf does look really soft and squishy. :-)
