Some knitting updates

This is a KAL I am working on for one of our Whoduknit books called Murder Most Crafty. It's a collection of mysteries with different craft themes and directions for a project at the end of each story. In one of the stories the project was beaded socks, but for our KAL we decided to do a scarf instead. It's a little bit hard to see the beads on this yarn - (click on it to enlarge) but they do sparkle and I am liking it very much. The yarn is handpainted Zen Yarn Garden sock yarn (fingering weight). The pattern is here . The beads are from Earthfaire.
Also in progress is a stash bag knit from all those little odds and ends of yarn I have leftover. It's loosely based on this bag on Colorjoy's blog.

No FOs to show this week! Tomorrow we are headed to Boston and Fenway Park to see the Red Sox break their losing streak and win their game against Baltimore! We'll be brining along raincoats and umbrellas and hoping for the best as far as the weather is concerned!

I like the beads; they add just enough sparkle but they're not overbearing. Cool!

Jane,

I really like the colors in your scarf and the beads are perfect with it.
