Recent Knits

These are some recent completed knits.  The scarf was started in July when Dale and I were living at the summer camp and all my other yarn was in storage.  I found a yarn shop in Rutland and this pattern online--it was really fun to knit!  The lace came out so pretty, but if I were to make it again, I would definitely use at least a skein and a half.  This scarf is almost a tad too short. 

This second pattern was one that I picked up at the Vogue Knitting Conference I attended in NYC last winter.  The yarn is a soft alpaca and I couldn't resist rubbing it against my face while I was working.  It is multi-purpose in that you can wear it as both a cowl and a head covering.  I think it will be especially useful here in VT this winter! 

Has the cold weather got you knitting up anything lately?  Which of the above would you prefer to don?
