I finished the faux cabled cowl and I don't think I showed it to you. I don't know why exactly I'm so red faced but the cowl turned out nicely.
This is that wrap with cables and dropped stitches--can't think of its name (eta JEANIE), and it has been a long time since I've worked on it--probably two months? It took a bit of time to get back into the swing of the pattern so I'll try to remember to work on this one every so often.
And the beanstalk scarf (new name) grows fairly quickly and the colors are MUCH more subtle than they look here. Must photograph in sun. Note to self.
