Beautiful Leaves

So I have any FO. Finally. I have the bad habit of starting a project, then setting it aside to start something else and repeating ad nauseum. But today, an actual finished project, which I am quite satisfied with. It's the Brooke's Column of Leaves Scarf . It's made with Knit Picks Andean Silk in Bluebell. It holds the pattern beautifully, but it came out a lot shorter than her pattern called for, since I only had 2 sk. But it's soft and warm, and I like it.
Other projects on the needles right now, the Sunrise Circle Jacket, a pair of convertible mittens for a friend, a little wrap-ette for another friend (which is off the needles and just needs to be blocked), the Silkroad Cardigan from Interweave, and probably a half dozen other projects I've forgotten about. I'm hoping having this blog will help me focus a bit more on completing projects, and not just starting them.

Hi everyone!

I've made it 30 years without needing to blog, but something has been working on my mind lately, and I thought it would be nice to have a place to think out loud, as it were. Here's hoping this is a gateway to new and interesting adventures. Until I get some thoughts together, I'll leave you with this picture of one of my favorite places in Brooklyn. On the Bay Ridge promenade near the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Isn't it lovely?
