Oh, this would be a good one to beg a new scarf out of a partner.  I missed the fall scarf swap and am really wanting one to go with my new winter coat.  Smiley  I could probably knock this out in a week.  I need to finish up an xxl item for another swap before signing up for this one though.

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

One tiny addition to go. I knit something last night during the election returns -- there should be major happiness in it! (Just speaking on behalf of the knitter Grin)
