Gearing it up

After I finished my first sock, I thought I wasn't going to have a ton of modivation to keep up the hardcore knitting. But, as I have discovered, I am a do or die type of person and I am going crazy trying to finish my other few projects. The reason for my psychotic whirlwind is that I ordered two new knitting books from Amazon and I know that as soon as I get those in the mail, new projects will begin (I refuse to let myself have more than four projects going at the same time)! I also am trying to finish this drop-stitch scarf for Mother's Day. I am just about half way finished and I love how its turning out. I am using Kiogu yarn which is fantastic for this lace scarf. The pattern is super easy:

Knit 6 rows, Next row (row 7) *k1, 2yo* repeat ending with a k1. Next row (row 8) *k1, drop 2yo* repeat ending with a k1. Repeat this 8 row series for as long as you like! I think I cast on 27 stitches to start.

That scarf looks AWESOME! And it sounds easy enough!

Im almost done with sock one, after my friend Cee helped us thru our relationship crisis *s* I have a bunch of stuff i want to start but since SSS is SO rampant, i wont even think about it untill AFTER the pair is done. THEN I can run a few WIPs at a time.

Wow, that scarf looks terrific! I might have to make one too. The colorway is so so perfect. How much Koigu will it take?
