New scarf pattern and my return

One of the projects I've been working on is complete - a simple and luxurious cashmere/merino scarf for Signature Needle Arts (knit with Argosy Luxury Yarns' Lotus Blossom). The pattern will be included, along with yarn and needles, in a kit; you can find it at Stitches Midwest at the Signature Needle Arts' booth. It's a simple pattern designed to reveal all the wonderful properties of the yarn, a sport weight cashmere and merino blend. The needles in the kit are Signature Needle Arts' new 7" straight needles:

We just returned from a quick trip to Oklahoma to visit my husband's family. This week will be set aside for a visit from my daughter; I haven't seen her in eight months -- the longest time we've been apart since she was born. I have a feeling we'll be spending some time at the mall. I've missed blogging, but I'm thrilled to have completed some of my lingering projects and to have made progress on others.


Lisa got the little something I knitted for her
to thank her for hooking me up with some translation assistance with my Japanese documents. And I should soon be able to show you a finished knitalong project.

Welcome back! Hope you had a nice little break. that is such a pretty scarf...I am a bit of a sucker for pink and anything with even a bit of cashmere. The little bit of lace pattern in it really suits the yarn.
