Knitting projects

I'm working on a couple projects that are quite fun... I'm doing my first real lace project, a scarf. Though really Rosita is my first REAL lace project. I'm distinguishing because, being a scarf, my current project is more traditional. I'm actually taking the beginner lace course at Mouline

Here's the scarf




And, I've also begun something entirely new for me, a nordic mitten! I'm working on a pattern called Egyptian Mitten, which is written in some Scandinavian language (the women at last night's Knit night think it might be Finnish but no one there speaks it so we're not sure). I've done the cuff. It was a silly project to take start at knit night. I had to rip out the cuff twice and the first pattern row a half dozen times because I kept losing count. But it's addicting, so even though I got home last night at close to 11 pm, I knit a bit then and  whole bunch more this morning. This is what I've got done so far 
I'm also knitting a lace sock (Monkey from Knitt.com) but I'll have to post that later since it's now time for the market!
