Striped scarves

I finished the knitting part of my Super Skinny Spaghetti Scarf and started another one in shades of green and blue with black to give it a stained glass effect. I still have to weave in half the ends on the first one, but I find that tedious, so I work on it during TV commercials or when I'm tired.

Hexagon and Stitch Markers

Here are two firsts for me. I stayed up until 2:30 AM the other night knitting a hexagon. I'm so thrilled I did it. And then I started another one the next day and made these stitch markers to help me keep my place better.

I've been trying to learn how to make a hexagon so I can knit hats for over 20 years. I must have 4 books on the subject. So I finally found directions on line that I could understand, and now I'm in hexagon heaven.
I've also never made stitch markers before. So happy to have made my first set. Now I won't have to buy any ever again.
