NINE. oh. my. goodness. i did not even know i was that bad. seriously. and...they are pretty much all scarves. what??

-skinny scarf in Tar-jay yarn
-gluffy scarf in Big Lots yarn
-lion brand fancy fur scarf
-lace scarf in KP's gossamer

ooh! pretty! Ana is lucky to have a great knitter working for her.

Selling the skarfs sounds like a good idea. You have much better yarn lying around to make nice scarves for yourself.

What are you using to make the shaped triangle shawl?

Wow! That is gorgeous!

How long did it take me to come look?? That shawl is GORGEOUS, Helen! Thank you so much. She is going to love it. I'll bet it feels like a dream. Was it Jaeger? I remember it was something light and super soft.

Gorgeous lace Helen. I'm so jealous of anyone who can make it that lovely.

Woo!

A lot of WIPS!

Time to get knitting! I say sell, give or gift! when you finish all the scarves.

Oh, and Lovely, lovely lace!
