Thursday's Sky, and Two scarfs

I actually did finish another project on the road...Trinity, traveling vine scarf is done. The pattern looks good on both sides, imo.

When I ordered the STR on impulse, I didn't ask about the difference between medium and light weight, and ordered the medium weight which was way too thick for socks. I started the Here and There Cables scarf from Wrap Style, but cast on 18 stitches less then recommended on size 6 needles, ending up with a very narrow, thick and somewhat stiff "neck sock". It somehow does not seem appropriate for a scarf, but between the color and the wonderful pleasure of the yarns feel, smell and and color (County Clare), I just can't stop knitting this.

Today's sky at dusk made into a mosaic with Flickr Toys, just because it's so much fun. The moon shot was "enhanced" with automatic photo fix. It is amazing how all this sky action goes on simultaneouly!

I had a fun night with the Aloha Knitters stitchin' and bitchin'. Knitting is way better the booze, heh. No hangover and we still are witty, philosophical and funny:) but we plan to try both booze and knitting soon!

Gawd, these scarves are great, both of them! I see, pic #2 is the one you mentioned in your comment being a bit stiff - but gosh, it looks so cozy! Perhaps you should also try what I'm about to do with my stiff cabled one - tossing it into warm water (about 40C) and adding a bit of shampoo and/or conditioner - this should soften it up just enough to make it feel even better to the skin! The colors are so gorgeous - and so are the ones of your sky pics, gosh, they're stunning!
