I have a quick-knit scarf on the needles. This is the Peppermint Special Olympics Scarf. You can find the pattern here: http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com/2010/03/peppermint-special-olympics-scarf.html . I will probably send this one to the person collecting the scarves for Special Olympics after I have a chance to show it at my knitting guild meeting. This would be a good scarf for the Salvation Army's homeless ministry. It is a warm and serviceable item.
More updating to follow. I still have the same pair of socks on the needles and have made no progress on those, but hope to get back knitting on them SOON.
