Another KAL completed.  I love this one.  Thanks Stephen West for another great pattern, Earth & Sky.  Yarns used were Madelinetosh TML in Vanilla Bean, Curiosity & Warm Mushroom.  I've never used Madelinetosh before, it's my new favorite.  I might even knit up a sweater for Bill with their's got has such a great hand to it and wonderful to knit with.

All Done

Here's the finished mystery shawl, blocking away on the patio table.  Before blocking, I always soak my knitted item in hair conditioner first. This shawl turned out exceptionally soft.

LOVE IT!  It's the perfect size to throw over my shoulders when going to a freezing restaurant.  Also the right size for just a little tied scarf.

The mystery shawl was so much fun, I decided to whip this up the following weekend.  It's a bit larger, personally not a fan of the beige (but it was in my stash) and turned out great.

This was knit several years ago...just never got around to taking pictures until now. 

Stephen West is the designer of  Daybreak, done up in scarlet/gray for my Ohio State Buckeyes.  I wear this one a LOT in place of a coat.

On my needles now (actually one of the things on needles) is Spectra, an awesome new design by Stephen West.

I was working on 2 separate shawls with the yarns.  After seeing the new design from Stephen, I frogged both and put the 2 yarns together.

...ok, I realize I have a shawl problem.

I just started another mystery KAL (knit along for you non-knitters) from Ravelry. The picture is after finishing up the 1st clue. Now I have to wait until Sunday for Wendy to post the 2nd clue:-( I am not a very patient knitter when I'm doing a mystery KAL!!

...another bag

I made another grocery bag. This one was a gift for a friend. I'm sure she'll love it as much I do mine.

My Christmas Present

Bill got me this wonderful Calphalon cookware for Christmas. I didn't want to just throw them in the cabinet to get all scratched. Looking through my (fabric) stash I found pieces of these colorful prints to use for pots/pans protectors. They are the same on both sides. LOVE THEM!!
They were so easy. Measured. Cut. Serged. DONE!!!
Kind of puts a smile on my face when I open the cabinet door:-)
