Finished a Couple Things

I finished my Knit Camp cardigan, aka Sweater #4, and I love everything about it!
This was knit in sportweight washable wool from Swan's Island in the color Cayenne, which is a bit darker and redder than the picture shows. The pattern is exclusively for Knit Camp participants, and was designed by Marie Greene.
The real color is closer to this:
(Before blocking and buttons. I got the buttons at Maker's Mercantile; they are Ornate Corozo Buttons, 15mm, burgundy.)
I finished my Scrap Yarn Pi Shawl made out of fingering scraps. It's a nice weight that will be good to wear in the summer evenings and mornings. You can find out how to knit it in Elizabeth Zimmerman's books Knitters Almanac and Knitting Workshop. Next time though, I might try to knit a Half Pi Shawl, because a whole pi shawl is realllly boring to knit ... hmmm, but it is all knitting and no purling. What to do, what to do ...
And there you have it.
I'm just finishing the last 33% of my Crest o' the Wave stole, and then I will have a sample to knit for somebody, but I will get busy on Sweater #5 as soon as I can!
