Organization, Schmorganization

I have lots of things that I want to post about, so I'm going to break them down into bits and post about everything over the next few days. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now (it could be the sugar rush), so I'm trying to get my thoughts together in the most organized way possible. Organization is a tricky little booger for me. My brain and my ability to collect junk both function much more quickly than my organizational skills. Therefore, jumbled thoughts and one hell of a still-messy closet. OK, that's enough rambling, let's get on with it. (See what I mean?)

Project Specs

Serafina Shawl
Pattern: The Serafina's Shawl by Doni
Yarn: JoAnn's Sensations Rainbow Boucle in the light blue colorway. I really like this yarn, it's soft and makes beautiful waves of color. It is very difficult to frog, though. The yarn comes in a huge ball and you can't beat the price.
Impressions: I saw many of these around the Net, most made from the same yarn as mine, and I just knew I had to do one, too. I love everything about this shawl, absolutely everything. I can't stop raving about it and showing it off. Unfortunately, it will be leaving me in about 2 months, say, around Christmas, maybe? I definitely see more in my future. Love it, love it, love it.

Project Specs

Symphony Scarf

Pattern: None. It's very simple double crochet with a few rows of single crochet spaced out even to break the scarf up a bit. I used the fringe from Sue's post here.
Yarn: Red Heart Symphony in Lt. Green. It's not the easiest yarn to work with, but it is oh so soft.
Impressions: I think this turned out to be a very pretty scarf. My fringe doesn't look as good as Sue's, but I know that the person getting it for Christmas will just love it, it's her favorite color.

That's it for tonight, guys. Blogger is being a pain in my arse, as usually, so I'll update this post tomorrow with pics. Also, for tomorrow's post, I'll show you how far I made it on my Socktoberfest socks. Til then, happy hookin'!
