What's been happening, Wibbo?

There's been sunshine (and an uncooperative feline),

a few grey days,

plenty of rain,

pretty pink skies

and a fair amount of knitting, most of which I can't show you yet. This one's for me though - a shaped scarf from Sally Melville's terrific book The Knit Stitch. My scarf doesn't look very exciting at the moment, but it feels luscious as I'm using up odds and ends of cashmere, silk, merino and alpaca yarns in dark mucky colours.
