I finally finished my Lemon Silk Scarf.   This was a very simple pattern and went along with me to meet-ups, car traveling, etc., all places I could not knit something more complicated.    When I ordered the yarn in Lemon Cream color I thought it would be a lot lighter than it is, but it turned out more yellow than I thought.    I don't wear yellow very well (except really light), so DD#2 said she loved it and that's where it's going.

My Roses Are Red shawlette is slow going - seems I have a "counting" problem (even with all those srs1ch markers)!   However, the yarn is a delight to work with, and I'm liking the pattern very much, so I'll keep plugging along.

How's this for a nice cool pix while many of you are suffering from the heat!   This is Mt. Rainier, the highest volcano in the contiguous United States.    We live about 60 miles away and get to see it every day, in all it's glory! This was taken yesterday.
