finally, back in the saddle

This summer we moved into a new house in a new town, so I haven't gotten much done except home improvements for the past couple of months. But, now that things have calmed down again, I've had some time for projects.

Here's a skein of yarn:

I've also been working on this scarf. The pattern is actually an accidental product of my inexperience with using charts. It was supposed to be a Barbara Walker pattern from Charted Knitting Designs, but I screwed up the wrong side stitches, and basically just purled across the back instead of knitting every pattern row the way it was supposed to have been knitted. Once I got through the first repeat I realized that 1) I was doing something wrong, as it didn't look anything like the picture, and 2) that I liked it. So, I guess I'll call it my serendipity scarf. It's knitted with Knitpicks Decadence.
