I'm knitting this super cool skinny scarf for our beloved John Maynes (who at least one of us will marry) who is currently in Slovenia on a mission. Yes, this is a super hard technique called double-knitting. It is a reversible scarf, as you can see.
We've also joined the alligator scarf bandwagon (thank you Jenni Boyle). I've knit the one in green, plus a mustard yellow and brick red one. Brooke knit the white one and is knitting another dark green one, which is turning out most delightfully.

And the grand finale..........
We hope you are crying your eyes out in unbelieving laughter. Brooke and I don't know what our favorite part about this photo is. The colors the poses, the facial expressions, the visible textures, the condom resemblance...I don't know, but it's wonderful.
If you wanted me to, I would knit you a
