A couple more items for the case - the first is a 55" scarf in a super soft yarn - turquoise with little flecks of color. I also knit one from a skein of the same yarn in dark magenta.
And finally, a cabled hat in a bulky grey heather yarn - it looks better on than it does laying on the floor. I started with 48 stitches on a size 13 circular & a 2x2 rib that morphed into 6 stitch cables with p2 between them. After three cable twists, I decreased to a 4 stitch cable, 1 twist, decreased to a 2 stitch cable with 1 purl stitch between before finishing off. No pattern, just winging it as I went but I like the way that a k2tog on the right side of the cable & slip 1 to knit, 1 to purl, k together blended neatly into the cable. I had enough in the skein to make a second hat in quaker stitch but forgot to photograph it this morning.
