A Re-Finish

I finally finished a scarf that I was reworking. The design is Lacy (or Lacey) Baktus. The first time I "finished" it was in December, but was just a few yards short of the amount of yarn I needed.  Bought a 2nd skein (yay Ravelry) then decided to rip back and make it a bigger scarf.  Finished the last few rows in time to wear it to work today! The yarn is Jitterbug by Colinette in the colorway Toscana. Hard to tell but the base color is a sort of sage green, with splashes of burgundy, royal blue, gold, purple and lime green. This was a fun knit and the 2nd time I've used this free pattern.
Cross-stitching? I finished the front of a Blackbird Designs Token but won't post it until it's fully finished (i.e., assembled). That might be awhile!

Kris - your baktus was gorgeous when I saw it in person - made me remember why I loved Jitterbug so much and your colorway is so wonderful and versatile. Still lots of winter left to enjoy! Mel

Ohhh pretty! Glad you got to enjoy it and I think Mel is right there will be a few more opportunities yet to wear it.

I really like the way the color variations work in this pattern. Perfect pairing of yarn and design.

That's a beautiful scarf, Kris - good job! I'm so glad you were able to get the extra yarn and that it matched.
