End of October

Linen Stitch Scarf - In Progress, about 25% done. Done!
Man Beanie Hat (for Warren) - Garter Stripe Beanie w/Brown Sheep sport (finally getting to use these, 3..? years after buying them!) for the garter part and the brown New Zealand vintage wool for MC; Last minute decision to do the "Turn a Square" hat instead. Still using the vintage NZ wool (it's got mohair in it as well, I forgot!), but for stripe colors I'm using WOTA in "carrot" and Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride in "autumn gold". I started this on Saturday (two days ago) and I'm about 50% done. Done!
Commissioned Linen Stitch Scarf - Using three colors of Ultra Alpaca. I'm forcing myself to slog through this, and am now about 45% done.
Alpaca Mittens (for mom) - Dashing? or Fetching? with the white/purple alpaca from These need to be done by the time she gets here a week before Thanksgiving. Ended up using the Nalu Mitts pattern (free on Rav!) and LOVED it. Started and finished these already, and I even wore them to work today. So lovely! Ended up using the Elann Alpaca in a soft cream color. Done!
Alpaca Mittens (for me) - Susie's Reading Mitts? I ordered some Ultra Alpaca in two shades of green for these and want to make some simple stripey mitts. Back to the drawing board I guess.
Market Bag - Everlasting Bagstopper (IV!), they actually opened a Hobby Lobby in my city (the closest previously was about 2000mi away), and Hobby Lobby has the best. cotton. yarn. ever. So I picked up a new skein to make this with.. I just need to finish that stupid scarf first so I can use my size 10 circs.
Linen Stitch Scarf (for me) - unsure of yarn.. this will need to be planned out later. I want it to be colorful! I am definitely going to try to use up all my Ultra Alpaca left overs.. as I'll have variegated gray, regular gray, black, navy blue, and two shades of green. Think I'll also pull out my leftovers baggie and see what else is in there..
