Cabled Scarf until it is blocked in all its FO glory.
But, that might take a little longer than it should since I have been officially sidetracked by the arrival of my Bendigo order. (the fact that my friend's parents had to include all this yarn for me in their measly luggage allowance all the way from Australia is fairly embarrassing... but I'm so excited that it is here!)
Those are all 200g balls! I now have enough yarn to complete the final 3 sweaters for resolution to knit each person in my family (including me!) a sweater in 2011.
Because I am very impatient, I have already cast on my son's 'Little Star - Canadian style'. I am going to knit Zoe Mellor's Little Star sweater without the stars and stripes. Although I have to admit I am already reconsidering adding the stripes on the sleeves back in as I love the colour of the green yarn - so this sweater may need a name change down the track.
The wool is Bendigo's luxury 8 ply. So far it is lovely to knit with. It is very springy and sooo soft.
Finally, I have also pulled back out a very old project from hibernation (which I am now calling 'Keeping it Even'). Back when I learned to crochet (badly) from a book (before YouTube), I made a blanket for my yet unborn first child. It is Bernat's free pattern Twinkle Little Star with some mild modifications. I originally made it from Bernat Baby Coordinates in yellow and blue, as in the pattern. Then I panicked that I might have a girl and made it again in green and yellow. Then, because I apparently wasn't done yet, I started it in pink and green. Just after I started, I had a little boy and never touched it again.
It isn't my favourite work, but my son loves his and currently won't go to bed at night without it (which of course, makes it all worthwhile).
Soooo, now that I have a daughter and my husband and I are debating SOMEDAY (far away) trying for a third, I would like to finish the pink and green blanket for my Doodlebug. Then, I will have the green and yellow as back-up for whichever our possible third might be (watch, I'll have twins - yikes, that's not even funny)
Hopefully YouTube will be able to reteach me how to crochet. For now, I will block out of my mind what a PITA the seaming of all those squares will be.
