Spring Cleaning

One of my knit groups has decided to have a Spring Cleaning Knit-along for the month of May. I think it's a great idea! How many UFOs do you have at your house? I have way too many to disclose. I'm working on a "day-at-a-time" schedule. The other day I finished up another FANtastic Scarf out of Noro Taiyo yarn. I had started a knit scarf with this yarn, but it wasn't sending me, so I reverted to the FAN.
I'm also working on my Artfibers sleeveless shell, Valparaiso Yarn in a beautiful Baby Alpaca - Merino Wool blend, DK weight, shades of olive. I have about 3 more inches to go on the back before shapiing the armholes. I like this yarn and sweater so much, that I just might make it into a cardi-vest instead of a slipover...the better to show off the yarn and stitch pattern.
This Sunday is Mother's Day. I whipped up yet another FANtastic Scarf for Mom in hot pink, TLC cotton which is 35% acrylic and extremely washable.
I liked how Mom's scarf turned out, so I whipped up a shorter version for myself in some leftover TLC in green from Larry's cardi.
I'm the whirling dervish of WIPs!

You have inspired me to try one of the Fan scarves! Way to "whip out" the finished objects! :)

(Aside: Sorry I'm so late in commenting. I suck at this blog thing lately.)

You ARE the whirling dervish of WIPS! And I can't believe you finished your Taiyo. You had to frog that silly yarn what? 5 times before it fit a pattern the way you liked? It looks great in your fan pattern. Yay! for spring cleaning.

Hi Steph,
The FAN-tastic scarf pattern is really a bookmark. You can find the pattern here:
