Man, that was worse than roasted garlic in my eye

So, two more finished thing that my month of bloglessness left you unaware of, I think. First of all, I finished recently my By Starlight's that I started... uh... in September. I'm finally finished with them, and I love them. I've worn them several times and I'm just now soaking them. The yarn is Malabrigo worsted in "oceanos" and again... mmm malabrigo. Can't get enough of that yarn. Here's a crappy pic of them because it is REALLY hard to take a picture of both of your hands yourself. Really hard.

The other thing that I finished but never talked about was this little lacey bookmark. I'm pretty proud of it, though I'm not exactly sure why. It's made out of Zephyr and size 1 needles.

Now, a couple of my WIPs. First, I started a two row stripe scarf like the rest of the world, but I'm using Patons SWS because... well... it's cheaper. I'm using SWS in Natural Geranium and natural earth.

Here it is so far. I lost steam on it for a while there because for a while EVERYTHING I was knitting was at a part that was k1 p1 rib and I couldn't handle it anymore lol.

And last for today, I started another Icarus, this one for me. I'm using Jojoland Harmony in this color. I'm in love with it. It's totally going to fly. Assuming I don't find something new and more interesting in the meantime. I'm way too ADD. :) Here's my progress.

Oh and, I finished reading ALL THREE of the books from the other day. If you're into sci-fi stuff at all you should totally check out the fever series. And if you're into romance novels at all you have got to read the highlander series. Just sayin. Go forth and borrow those books from thy library. Then hasten back and tell me what you think. ;)

Wow your dorkdom knows no limits. *grin* Love the icarus. I think it was totally worth the wait for the yarn
