FOs and stuff

Finished my mosaic scarf today:

Then I started this hat:

It's a pattern called Noro Wavy Gravy one skein Kureyon--except I'm making it in Silk garden to go with the scarf above. I'm going to line it in light pink Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Worsted. Hey, it's cold here.

Here are pics of the yarn from yesterday:

The yarn on the left is the Handmaiden Sea Silk and the yarn on the right is the Noro Kureyon. I also found enough leftover lavender Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in my stash to line the headband with.

Here are a couple of views of the giant snow piles in Copps grocery store parking lot:

It makes my car look really teeny. I hope we won't be adding too much more to it. I hear we're only supposed to get about an inch or so tomorrow.

Awww, Copps snow mound! I miss that (despite how gross it is when it melts).

Nashua Creative focus was what I made my forecast sweater out of--I developed a reaction to it and now I can't wear my first sweater-sad story :(. That certainly will make a nice snuggly hat for you though!
