Just finished my second knitted shawl - finally!


There are a few more photos of a journal and dishcloths, on my blog, that I finished as well.

beautiful Kristina!

I'll be finishing up a few ufos. I have a bad habit of putting down projects because I see a new pattern or yarn and want to start something new. Or I get a paid order from someone, and neglect to finish my stuff. So now I have little bags of half finished stuff everywhere! Time to buckle down, focus, and finish things. My home and my head well be a lot less cluttered!

Kristina, I love the shawl!! What beautiful work. What's next on your list? I agree with Shanda, I am really trying hard to finish one thing before I start another, but it is so hard!

Thanks ladies. There are two more on my list - a knitted block blanket, and a braided rag rug.

I finished this rug a few weeks ago, made from t-shirt fabric crocheted. The shawl I finished Saturday, it is knitted, took me 3 weeks.

Janet, that shawl looks just like a big moth. It's so pretty. I have a bag full of t-shirts I need to cut up and make some rugs too. Just gotta get started.



I started working on an afghan for our bedroom. I want to paint the walls that blue color and get some white tap top curtains. Then use blue, white and chocolate brown pillows and accents. I need to get my old chair recovered in these colors too.

For me, it's been the usual ATCs (Valentine themed) and APRONS of all kinds for orders, for a local country store and for a local indoor farmers market.

I really like your triangle shawls, Janet. I have wanted to make one for the longest time. Maybe if I think of it as 1/2 of the simple knitted dishcloth and make it really big it would work. Hmmm. I love your rug too. I saved a rug of my mom's just to have a sample of that era. (a lot like yours). Now, I find I want to make them also.

lol, Peggy, I was wondering if you were going to spot that scotty. Isn't it adorable?! Gracie, you do such a great job!

Deb, that soap even looks soft and silky. I, too, was wondering if you sell it.

Grace,

You did a beautiful job on your little scotty. He is so cute!
I think they are such sweet, but mischievious little fellows.

It is fun to all the pretties everyone is working on.


Blessings to all!

Grace, I love your Scotty!!! He is super cute <3

Here is what I was working on yesterday. It was my niece's birthday so I made her a pair of these super cute fingerless lace gloves. Lace is all the rage lately so I hope she, as a 16 year old, likes them :)

Siobhan...I think a 16 year old will love those. I haven't seen many with the Lacy Affect
but I think they are fabulous and so sweet looking! Do you get the Jane Austin Knitting
Magazine? It looks like something they would feature in that Magazine. Beautiful!

blessings,

Thanks Peggy! I do not get that magazine, but I was going for a Victorian type look when I switched out the pattern's garter stitch cuff for this picot bind off. I thought it would be prettier :)

I just finished this afghan for my DH last night. It wasn't until I looked at this picture that I realized that one of the strips is sewn in upside down!
I am laughing it off and calling it artistic flair! Ha ha! All that is important is that Hubby can snuggle up and enjoy all the love I put into it.

Siobhan,
If I were 16, I'd LOVE those beautiful fingerless gloves! GORGEOUS!!

Tracy,
If you hadn't said anything I wouldn't have noticed, but go with artistic flair. I made an apron for my daughter with directional strawberry print and, I got part of the strawberries upside down. I just said it was for the benefit of my daughter, the wearer!
