Knitting away...

I am currently spending quite a bit of time knitting! A friend showed me how to cable knit and I made the Irish Hiking Scarf (top left). The picture is a bit fuzzy, but it turned out really well! The seed stitch cowl (top right) was pretty simple, except for the fact that I was chatting with friends while knitting and ended up doing about 2 rows of ribs before I caught myself (this happened twice). Plus side: I became quite proficient at "unknitting". The bottom image is what I'm working on now. The pattern is a bit trickier than anything I have ever attempted, but I'm trying to continue to stretch my knitting horizons. We will see if it turns out!
