Loose ends

I'm trying to finish up some projects I have laying around. I finally finished my Pure Pima swatch - isn't this the coolest cable? Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be able to show you our top-secret Pure Pima project. It's a collective effort and we are all so eager to see it when it's finished!
I also have a cabled hat going in Mille Colori Big. This is a new yarn from Lang. It's brand new - not even on the website yet, maybe tomorrow? But many of you will remember Mille Colori - the worsted version of this that we did SO well with a couple of years ago. Here it is in a bulky. One skein will make a hat and mittens, I believe. So I just have to finish the hat, and then make the mittens!
And then I started a teacher end-of-year gift. This is with Tilli Tomas Asteroid, a gorgeous beaded silk. It's a two row pattern that's quite simple and the result is stunning! I think I already contributed for a class gift, but I couldn't resist with this one. And this yarn is on sale at a rock bottom price! I am also planning a hat with it, but I have to design it, and I'm a bit stumped with what I see in my mind, and how to actually achieve the exact result I want.

So I have these loose ends, and I want to finish them up. They are all relatively small projects, but it's the last two weeks of school, and there are so many school related activities that are filling my evenings!

Can you include the two row pattern for the Tilli Thomas yarn please? It is lovely.

I am truly loving that cable pattern. Looks very much like the DNA complex helix. I'd love to have the pattern to use for a scarf for my husband whose life work has involved DNA. Please let me know how to get it.
