The Lorna's Laces was a quick knit - and the zig zags were easy and fun. I took the pattern from Scarf Style - the formula from the back of the book, which was really simple - the LL was just a little too short for the scarf - even at kid length, so I added some stripes. And instead of pom poms, we went with tassels - since they look more like pony tails, I am told. Apparently life has a unicorn theme these days.
Am now moving on to my next recent purchase - the Malabrigo. This stuff is a new favorite - the same beautiful colors as Manos, but even softer. I am making Coronet - the cabled hat from Knitty. (If I was really inspired, I'd have added a link there, sorry.) The skein seems huge, so there might be a coordinating scarf next.
Once I finish these few small projects, I'll get back to Grace. Just needed a short break before I begin the back!
