Misty Garden Scarf

I have been busy, busy at work since final grades are due. Can we say--end of the semester?

My birthday was on Monday, and I had a lovely time. Bruce and Anna made a cake and bought flowers. Anna made sure the cake was exactly what she wanted--chocolate with chocolate icing and sprinkles! And the flowers were purple also--her favorite color. We had a sitter and went to dinner and a movie. I think it was the 4th time we have had a couple date in 3 years... We saw the new Harry Potter movie, which I enjoyed. You can't get too hung up on all of the missing scenes from the book. It is pieced together, but fun. Poor Snape gets little time, but the action scenes are great fun--though it was certainly the most frightening of all the movies so far.

And, the big knitting news is that I finished my last knitted holiday gift:

This is the Misty Garden Scarf from Scarf Style. I am so slow when it comes to following the knitting trends. I kept looking and looking at this book but didn't know what to make from it. I followed the pattern exactly, but used the Jane Ellison's Queensland Collection Comfort Mohair (632). It knit very nicely. The great thing about this was the pattern was easily memorizable and fast--perfect for watching the child and keeping the hands busy.
