A few FO's

The dress is done except for the hem, hook & eye closure, and tacking down the lace on the collar. I decided that this was the best most efficient way to make the hearts appear "right side up". I just found out that the dress is not needed for the rehearsal this Saturday, so I am now working on the preparations for dd#3's 7th birthday party which is on Sunday. More on that later.

Behold the finished Rook Scarf for dh

I love the way this yarn changes color and as with the Rook Hat, I loved the "V" stitch that is incorporated into the pattern every so often.

Wow ...another super cute bear :) Love your husband's scarf. I love knitting with yarn that is either variegated or shaded. Much more fun than knitting a solid, especially with a scarf ;)

happy knitting :)
