Business planning and crocheting

So I completed the feather and fan scarf below on Saturday. I finished the free form last Wednesday evening and it is now in Conneticut with Sarah. Sunday I met with my two business partners for the better part of the day, working on our business plan, all the while happily crocheting away (from start to finish) on my green chenille scarf. This is how life should be.

I also got a shout out from my business partner/best friend Scott's boyfriend Joe. He will be our future IT consultant. He's cool.

That's about it for today. I'm still plugging away at the orange and white scarf and the purple lace. I gotta get my hands on dpns (I managed to lose out on a great set on Ebay - I will be trying again soon) so I can get cranking on the socks.

I've got Stitch 'n Bitch tonight - yee haw!

Feather and Fan scarf in Magic Stripe

Lion Brand Magic Stripe on #6, three repeats. It's my "easy project" for now.

Slip Stitch scarf

Orange cotton and white acrylic "fall scarf" for DH. My first attempt at a slip stitch pattern. I definately like this easy technique for color work. I'm already planning orange and white mittens worked in this same pattern, but in wool to be felted.

Freeform in progress

My first attempt at Freeform knitting and crochet. Mostly Lion Brand yarn - two colors of homespun, one chenille, some verigated wool, and other color coordinates from my stash. This is the project for the weekend - I need to almost double this in size. I'm really looking forward to it! Then, it will go on an overseas journey with Sarah. Maybe I can get her to post a pic or two when she wears it :)

Yo! Drop It Scarf

The Yo! Drop It scarf from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation in two strands - red & white Pineapple and red acrylic. approximately 6 hours to complete.
