I just finished up a couple of FO's and want to share what I've been up to.

First, I have Serpentello, a 1x1 rib scarf with reversible cables for my husband. Pattern available on Ravelry here (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/serpentello)
I made a couple of modifications with the cables, having them travel vs staying in the same column of stitches. Super easy! I used Plymouth Encore yarn in green tweed and the hubby loves it.

Second, I have the Picot Boo Cardigan from the Stitch Nation Collection I booklet. I made this for a good friend of mine using Queensland Super Aussie in a light green color.

Very very nice! Love the traveling Serpentello. It turned out very manly looking and such a wonderful color.

I'm a big fan of button-up cardis, and yours is simply gorgeous. Great color and very feminine looking! Can I be your fwend?

You've done very well. The scarf is a simple and elegant design, beautifully done. I like your variation with the traveling cables, too. And the sweater is lovely, delightful gift. Very nice, indeed!

Very nice work! Love seeing a sweater here in Whatcha Knitting that's not mine! Yay! A very lovely sweater! Great job!

Plus, I know your DH will get lots of use out of his new scarf!

A lovely, softly feminine sweater. Love the color and the lace. I've not seen a cable quite like that one on a scarf. It gives the impression of movement underneath the knitting. Maybe that serpent crawling along. :)
