Bookmarks



I just thought these were so pretty, I found the pattern on the Internet and started turning them out, everyone wanted one! I have to make several more for gifts, good for Christmas! Supposedly, you can also use much thicker yarn and make a scarf but I lost interest after I started one, these are much more interesting. They have a Chinese flavor to them.

I am starting meetings at my house this next Monday, I hope all of my knitting girls will come, I like to meet here; it is much more cozy.

Update on the shawl: I am halfway finished with the lace border and it looks terrific!

Purple Haze









I have to start finishing this vest! I love it,it is a Vogue pattern, why did I stray? So many other things to work on. I am really afraid that I have so much yarn I will never be able to knit it all. Today I worked on Ravelry uploading pictures of my yarn so I can try to be organized...There is just not enough time to do everything I want to do. Tomorrow is Mother's Day, I want to knit all day!

Knitting Circle

Here are a few of my girls that come to my knitting class. They are so intent on their knitting! We have a great time talking and knitting; it is so relaxing and soothing, the time flies by!

Shimmery, pretty




Here are some photos of my latest creation, it is a shawl designed by Meg Swanson. The yarn is shimmery and light and there is a lace border around the bottom which I have just started to knit. I was happy to get this pattern when Steff bought some yarn at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, it came with a free pattern. She took one look at the pattern and said, "No way am I making this, it is too hard for m e" so I urged her to take the pattern and I have had it since then. When I inherited yarn from m y friend Nadine, she had started a project with this yarn, so I unraveled it and started this shawl. Now the dilemma, do I clean my house...or knit? I would rather knit but I am going to hold off and clear my afternoon for knitting. Today is a rainy sort of murky day so it will be perfect to work on my lace edge!
