Lots of knitting

Hello! It was so nice to see a new post here that I thought I would FINALLY put up some of what I have been doing.
I am still knitting on my Debbie Abrahams blanket. I am currently on row 5, however I have put it aside for the time being and am getting a teeny bit of Christmas knitting done. I will take a picture of my progress so far and post it soon.

This scarf is the Pikenaze made with Louisa Harding's Willow tweed. It is a lovely yarn and knits up really nicely.
I almost want one for myself, but hate the thought of knitting 2 of the same thing. Seems too boring

Ha - I think this is hilarious. If I were even remotely interested in the whole skull motif I would make one of another of these. It took me 2 days to do the knitting and I really love the whole felting process. Fun to see a project so completely change. The pattern is from Knitty and is called Yorick. This one is for my strange and hard to buy for brother in law. I think he will get a kick out of it.

I have done another scarf and will post pics as soon as it is blocked. I am working now on a pair of mittens. I failed at some mittens last winter and am up for the challenge again.
I will let you know how they turn out.
I hope to see all of what you guys have been up to. I have missed you all and all of the creativity!

WOW! I am always so impressed with your knitting. It's so beautiful! Well...except for the skull thing. Now that weird! But it's funny that you knitted a skull scarf. LOL!

I love that skull scarf! It's so unusual! And your lace work is just gorgeous! Good job!
