Spacey (and I don't mean Kevin)

I haven't been as consistant a blogger as I would like the last couple months; between the Holidays, allergies an allergy meds I've been spending a lots of time just staring at a wall - time I would normally spend doing more productive things. No idea what's setting it off this time of year; usually, I only have hay fever symptoms in the spring. Sorry if I sound spacey.

I started a new scarf; had a family request for a black, super long, very soft scarf. I'm using Austermann's Bambou Soft to make Karabella pattern #KK239
Karabella soft cabled scarf

A very soft cable only twisting every 14 rows with a border of seed stitch on either side. The yarn is really a true rich black but I had to wash out the color a bit to get the texture to show up in the photo.

My Chevron Scarf #3 is done but not blocked. Just this morning, in a Gardening Club meeting, I finished a pair of Kaffe Fassett Regia socks. And last night I finished knitting My So Called Scarf; still have to weave in ends and block. So pictures are due.

I was halfway through the first wing chart on Mystery Stole 3 and decided to rip it back and forget the wing. I'm now chugging through the charts making a second rectangular section. Since I know the pattern this is going lots faster than the first half did.

And there's going to be another Mystery Lace Shawl KAL called Mystic Light Mystery Shawl Knitalong. Wouldn't it be nice if I could be done with MS3 before the next one starts March 26th? Think I've just found a goal to finish date.

That's all I got...

I love your scarf. Very nice. I have so much to learn, but I keep trying. I know I have learned something new everyday this week. I'm tired, and plan on resting at the Machine Knitting Seminar.
