One of my most recent projects that I knitted was another scarf. This one came out much better than my first one. It was also quite a bit longer. When finished, this scarf measured just over 5 and a half feet long. It is very thick, but it would definitely keep you warm in the winter. I actually knitted this scarf as a Christmas gift. The person I knitted it for doesn't have a blog, and probably doesn't read any, but because I love keeping gifts a surprise, I wont mention it. If you are really dying to know (which I am sure you aren't) you can ask.

(P.S. Sorry for the horribly obnoxious yellow lighting. For some reason the light in my dining room, one of the few places in my apartment with a decent background for photos, mixed with my laptop's camera turn all of my photos yellow.)
My most recent project was a pair of wrist warmers because, as I am sure you all know, my wrists are always cold here in the frigid state of Florida. Kidding aside, I chose wrist warmers because I wanted to knit something that I could wear this fall or winter and I thought that wrist warmers would be cute. Speaking of knitting something for fall, I do believe that is one of the items on my fall challenge (7. Knit something for fall). I feel that they came out okay for my first attempt, but of course there are several things that I will improve for next time.
Here are some photos of my finished wrist warmers:
