Finally ~

start-of-shawl.JPG … After much trial and error I have finally decided on a pattern for my grandmother’s shawl. I have chosen the Rave Lace Shawl by Classic Elite Yarns. Instead of using their yarn however I am using Caron Simply Soft in Berry Blue. I will also use this a PS February/March project!

This is the sad start to a pair of socks. I started these socks.JPGMORE than a year ago (for my dad) … I am using just the standard “men’s sock pattern”. Let’s hope I can stay on track and get these finished. I have to just not start any NEW projects until these are all finished!!

Friday … at last!!

dsc00961.JPGThis is the start of a little hoodie sweater for my friends little girl. I am using red heart yarn. This little sweater is going to be one of my PS February/March projects.

I am also going to do my best to get more of the pesky socks (that I started almost a year ago) knit. I am hope that my involment with in socktopia is going to inspire me to finish the current pair of socks and move on to others!!

Happy Knitting!!

It is a new goal of mine to learn to take better pictures. So with that said while blog surfing yesterday I came across this group. Here is the premis:


You post one or more pictures once a month, any time during the month. The pictures should express the meaning of the month to you. You can post about a person, a place, a thing – whatever you want. Then you write a blog post in conjunction with the pictures to explain the meaning of the month. Twelve pictures/sets = a dozen days. At this point we’re thinking of keeping it simple – do it if you want, but you don’t have to join anything to participate. And we aren’t planning a blog or a web ring. You just post to your own blog. What do you think? You can do it in conjunction with Eye Candy Friday or another group that you are a member of. The goal is to make a fun group that you can use to improve your skills and reflect on the things that matter to you.

In knitting news, I have the decrease left of the hat I started for DD before Christmas. Last night I started a baby hoodie. I have also been working on the dishcloth that I started, it is comming along nicely. I will post WIP pictures in a few days of all these things.

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can’t imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.http://marniemaclean.com
