Dollar and a Half Cardigan

So I have decided to join a knit a long for the Dollar and a Half Cardigan in the Spring Interweave magazine. It is the first time I have actually joined a knit a long so we will see how that goes. I will have to remember to post my progress. Right now though I am still in the stages of choosing my yarn for this cardigan.

A finished scarf and some new roving

I finished a scarf for myself!!! It's the first thing I have started and finished absolutelly for myself. My boyfriend says I need to hide it so nobody globs onto it. Which is what usually happens to the stuff I knit. Anyway I made it out of the Malabrigo yarn I got from my knittyboard sp and I absolutely love this yarn. It was a dream to work with and it knit up quickly. Here is a picture of the finished scarf close up. I had a picture of me wearing it but seriously didn't want to subject anyone to that.

And now I am spinning some yarn. I am trying to make a camo yarn and it is turning out pretty well. It's more feminine than the normal camo, which was on purpose because I plan on knitting something for my sister with it. Which she HAS to have something pink on everything she owns so I bought a little bit of pink to spin with the camo colors. Here is a picture of the fiber with a little spun onto the spindle:

I'll definatly post a pic when it is done.
