I am totally in love with this one, it was such a fun knit. It's long and cozy and the color is rich and jewel-toned...and I adore the pattern and how it makes scallops along the edges and the ends are scallop-y points! All without being too frilly or fancy.

And I love this one too, even though it was a total bore to knit. It's wide enough to be a wrap, but also light enough to be thrown around the neck like a big fluffy scarf. I tried several patterns, but none worked with the yarn~~either the pattern was lost in all the colors or the colors pooled horribly. So I finally cast on 50 stitches and knit the whole thing in garter stitch...which magically caused these beautiful stripes.
