WIP Wednesday: Kusha Kusha Scarf

A dear friend's birthday is quickly approaching and I wanted to make her a little something.  She's probably the biggest recipient of my scarves and doesn't seem to tire of them.  So guess what... she's going to get another :)

This is the start of the Kusha Kusha scarf.  I think this is such a simple, yet sophisticated, pattern.  A nice easy knit too.  And since the needles are a US 8, it goes reasonably quickly.

Other than that, with the assistance of my trusty helper, I managed to finish up 98 of these salt water hexies!

Now I just need to figure out what to do with them - currently thinking they'd be fun for the bottom half of another birdie sling bag.  What do you think?

I was surprised that I enjoyed working on these as much as I did.  Of course all I have done is the basting.  Next comes the tricky part of stitching them together.  And speaking of stitching together, I am also making good progress on Mum's quilt.  I'll share some more pictures once I get a little further on...

Other WIP are the Bertie's Blanket squares for hospice.  You can check out the latest progress on http://BertiesBlankets.blogspot.com.  Thanks for all the support :)

Happy hump day,
Hope you enjoy the rest of your week,

The yarn for the scarf looks so soft and a lovely colour. I really like all your colourful hexagons. You must have a lot of patience to do all the work involved in making them into something. I think a bag would be lovely.

I love lacy scarves knit on large needles! Your hexies are adorable ... that's on my list of techniques to try this year, too!

Oooh, I love those colors for the scarf! They are ethereal and shimmery, so beautiful. I did wince a bit at the thinness of the yarn.
I dunno how you made those hexes but they are super cool!
