October Update

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 - ugh. So, my first linen stitch scarf was so awesome that I got about a DOZEN requests to make more, but one person offered to pay me to do it. Alright. So now I'm working on that, and while I'm not super-stoked about making other people stuff, I get a small amount of yarn and cash out of the deal. Using three colors of Ultra Alpaca. Started this a few days ago and I'm about 15% 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.
Alpaca Mittens (for me) - Susie's Reading Mitts. I was going to use KP Andean Silk for this but I really am not liking that. Back to the drawing board.
Market Bag (for Magen) - Everlasting Bagstopper (IV!) w/whatever cotton I have laying around.. I think I have a skein or two of KP CotLin and some random Omega Sinfonia/Plymouth Fantasy.. If possible I'd like to have this done for Christmas.
Linen Stitch Scarf (for me), unsure of yarn.. this will need to be planned out later. I want it to be colorful!
