I've knitted a substantial amount more as you'll be able to see from the picture...
I'm about halfway through my wool aswell (I weighed it lol)...so I may need another ball so that I can make it long enough and do tassles etc...then I may knit myself a hat too (following a similar pattern to the one that I knitted for Abby!)
I hope you like my progress if you've been kind enough to view my blog...

I am starting a chunky knit scarf for myself...I plan to add tassles and crochet flowers when I have knitted the main bulk of the scarf...I'm not sure just yet how long I am going to make it...I think I'll just knit until I feel happy with the length...if it goes well then I plan to knit one for my best mate as well (for Christmas - oOoOo organised...) as the wool also comes in a pink/red/orange ball too...
Wool: James C Brett - Marble Chunky (blues, purples & greens) - beautifully soft and subtly changes from one colour to the next!
Needles: 5 1/2mm
Stitches: 47 (1 each end for selvage)
Pattern found here: http://web.archive.org/web/20071117054344/www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftsscarf.htm
I hope that you like my new project & choice of wool...
I am enjoying knitting it so far even though I've only done a small wedge...

I wanted to knit a hat for baby Abby(my cousins new little one) to use up some of the wool I had left over from the blanket I made...
I wanted an easy but effective pattern and I found one here: Baby Hat on Two Needles - I kept looking for patterns and finding them knitted up on circular needles, I wanted something simple using just 2 needles and the pattern I've linked was perfect.
Here is my attempt (I even added two crochet flowers which I did myself...):
I'd do another, I started this last night (probably just after tea at about 7pm) and finished it this afternoon :0)
I hope you like my little project...
