The Noro Silver Thaw finally told me what it wanted to be. Thanks Penny for the inspiration! I started this scarf yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon and finished it this morning. In other words, it was a quick knit. The original pattern is from the Scarf Style book. It's originally done in a DK weight yarn, but the Silver Thaw is a worsted weight, so I worked it on 6 mm needles. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the total length of the scarf is between 4-5 feet, short compared to a lot of the scarves out there, but perfect for wearing under the collar of a jacket or coat. Personally, I don't like my scarves really long. They tend to get in my way.
The other completed object is a facecloth, made from Crystal Palace's Cotton Chenille. The pattern is from Interweave Knits, Winter 2003, as well as from the book, Weekend Knits. It took me one afternoon to knit up. I could see doing the pattern in just about any cotton yarn. It was a fun knit, but the chenille is NOT the easiest yarn to work with on 4 mm needles. Will I make more of these? Probably. I could see giving them as gifts with a nice bar of fancy soap or even some hand made soap (no, I don't make soap, but there are plenty of women who do).
I'll post a picture of the baby sweater once I have the second sleeve knitted and the sweater put together. Then all that's left to knit for this outfit is the hat, and that's a quick knit, too. Then, on to a few more UFO's. *grin*
