Hoppy Easter!!

I love my family!! One reason is that this is the kind of cool stuff I get for holidays...lots of candy (YUM, Thanks Easter Bunny!), funny cards and a diva bunny!! Rock on!!

I have been super busy lately, but squeezing in as much knitting as I can muster. Granted, it's not much, but at least I can keep it going!
Here is my current status on the Phiaro Scarf. It's 7 in long, so I'm about one-third of the way there. I can't wait to see how it comes out!! The color in this pic is a little off, it's a taupe so imagine more brown - less gray....

I'm still trucking along on my HP PoA scarf, although it's kind of my 'down-time'/TV project. I know I won't be able to use it until next winter so I'm not rushing it.

My newest purchase is 20 balls of this red-plum wool for a steal!
I've got about 2200 yards, OH THE POSSIBILITIES! I think I'm going to get brave and try my first sweater, just trying to pick a pattern. Right now in the running is the frontier blues jacket (by Wendy Bernard and featured in the winter 07/spring 08 knitscene) and the clover cardi (by Carrie Bostich Hoge, also from the winter 07/spring 08 knitscene). I haven't scoured through Ravelry yet, but plan to look at more patterns there. I love the 1/2 to 3/4 sleeve cardi look, so if anyone has other recommendations, let's hear it!!
