FO Friday: Breaking the Silence

It's been just over a week since my last entry - my trip to Kansas City last weekend was fun and productive, though short.  I was able to see a few of my friends and pretty much all of my family - not to mention knit (and crochet) up a storm!

On the train ride down, I finished my Abalone Cardigan in Malabrigo Silky (Matisse Colorway):
While in K.C. I finished the first wedge sock using the crazy awesome German yarn (Wollglöckchen Handgefärbte Sockenwolle - say that five times fast); on the train ride home I started sock # 2 and will probably get the heel turned this weekend.  Pardon the crappily-lit self-portrait:
 I also completed this sideways double-crochet scarf - the yarn is some wonderfully soft MCN hand-dyed by my pal Kit (who is also a tattoo artist and is responsible for the half-sleeve in the below photo).  It's been the perfect little scarf for this crazy-for-March weather we're having this week:
Finally, I got a lot of knitting done on the Riverside Cowl (exclusive Malabrigo March pattern by my pal Breean at Doodlebug Yarns this month!  Use the coupon code at right for $5 off your purchase of yarn & pattern for this project!) - I finished it upon my return to Chicago this past Monday night.  I only wish I had a need for it, since this is the first cowl I've made in a while that actually stays up around my neck and keeps me warm!
Here's a close-up of the stitch pattern, which really shows off the prettiness of the colorway (which is Chispas, if you're wondering!):
