I need an FO

I haven't finished a knitting project in months (unless you count two baby hats, and I don't). I need a sweater, a scarf, a beautiful sense of accomplishment. But no, I've been working on shruggy surprise to wear to my cousin's wedding, which still isn't done and is not extremely satisfying. Worse, the wind has a brisk chill and on my way through the park I saw a maple all ablaze in red and orange glory. I want a big, yummy, hand-knit sweater. I wore Francis yesterday. I really love her. I need to knit more perfect sweaters that take no time and come out fitting perfectly. My ears have been sucking in freezing air as I glide about town on my new bike and I so I have been trying to make an ear warmer from my stash, but to no avail. All I have is just lots of frogged yarn and cold ears. People, I need an FO. What should I knit? Please tell me.

have you tried knitting quant? i started it, using some variegated berroco...it was coming out well, i just wasn't a huge fan of the entrelac. i may try it again soon, but it's definitely a gorgeous ear-warmer!

I just bought an alpaca blend to make this scarf...http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTlaceribbon.html
I love the idea of being able to wear it all day at the office or out to dinner. I'm sure you'll find something in no time! Good luck!

Oooo both are very pretty. I love that scarf and will definitely knit it some time soon. I need a mindless knit after all of the lace in the shruggy surprise. Endless stockinette?
