Last four days of 2009

4 days days and 13 WIP's. Not that I think that I will cast off 13 FO's in 4 days, but I do wonder how many needles I can free in 96 hours. I would at least love to finish my December Shawl so to complete my 12 patterns for 2009 (I am pretty surprised that I have not given up on that!)

Second project in the run is one of the following (so that I can complete 4 of the 12 sweaters in 2009):

Ingenue: I just ripped back to the waist shaping and I need to lengthen the sleeves too

: better known as the cursed vest

White Sparking Shrug
: that Principessa needs soon anyway

This one is for me

In the mist of mad holiday gifts knitting, I did finished something for me a while ago:

Artesano Scarf
Yarn: Opulencia by Artesano
Ravelry project page: here

It is the ascot version of my Little Scarf (meaning that I stopped knitting after I finished the first ball of yarn.) I am thinking matching half mittens with the second ball.

I am extremely pleased on how it matches my new bag:
