My mini vacation

Well, lucky Frank escaped for a week to Colorado! So mom and I went down to Austin for a few days. Definitely not the same as Colorado, but a nice change of pace none the less. I had lots of time to crochet, which was nice since I'm on a time crunch for finishing up a gift. Here is what I worked on. I think I am about a quarter done. This is my kool aid yarn, with the Babette four round granny square. I'm loving it! Since I was in a yarny mood I made a point to stop in Hill Country Weavers to pick up a ball of Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. I bought this Spring Ripple Scarf Pattern a while back and am looking forward to starting it. I got the yarn in the color pictured here. The pattern only takes one skein, and it self stripes, which is great.
I'll tell you more about my trip soon.

Penny, they actually do have a faint Kool aid smell still!

Alicia, that photo is from the pattern designers website. I haven't made mine yet, but hopefully it will look that good.

The blanket is so pretty, even unfinished! You seem to work very quickly.
