My new, finally finished, scarf & winter bag

I did it! I put the fringes on my much desired & long awaited green cable scarf last night while chatting with Deanna on the phone. It's done. I'm not totally digging how it looks because I purled too much across the front & forgot that makes the edges curl in. So mostly all you can see is the back which is not as pretty as the cables I spent so much time knitting on the front. I AM still wearing it, however...one, because I spent sooooo much time on it & two, because it is SO soft. My neck is in heaven. I can't stop running my fingers through the fringes either. I have lots more of this yarn. Perhaps I'll knit another, with a different pattern of course, as a gift to someone special. This is the winter bag that I knit last year. I just finished sewing the handles on this afternoon. I love it.Things have been pretty quiet this weekend. Mostly knitting & watching football. I suppose it's time to take the puppies out for another walk... Melissa

Thanks you guys!!! I feel all warm & fuzzy now, just like my scarf. :)

p.s. Procrastamom, I tried to go on your blog, but it wouldn't let me, but thank you for the comment anyway.

That scarf is amazing!!!!! I love the colors, the pattern, the length...if only I liked to knit I'd make one! I try to knit but even as I am knitting I am thinking of how much I detest it. I think that may be against the law in the blogging world :)
