Solitude = lots of knitting time

During my "seclusion" in Wichita, I finished a scarf, and started "In the Pink".  The center of the shawl was relatively easy and I had it finished in 2 days!!!!  Now, to take a deep breath and start the 'wings'.
More to come...

In the Pink

Another UFO now finished

I think this is the last UFO in the house!!! Except for the shawl in time out; and the mate to a slipper that hasn't been started yet, otherwise I'm caught up.
there are a couple of in-progress projects in the car, but that's another story.

Owlie sleep sack

Promise kept!!! On to "In the Pink"

I kept my promise to myself and got the second WIP finished and blocked.
Rustic autumn shawl, made with sock yarn, turned out wonderful!!!!

It's hard to see the ribbing on the edge, but I'll bring it to Knit Nite for oohs and aahs!!
Next project is "In the Pink"  which I will work on in solitude in the hotel in Wichita this week-end!!!

On the VERGE

I finished this shawl before going to the Lake yesterday.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pattern. So fast, and love the "built-in" fringe.


I bought this pattern at the Twist yarn shop in Wichita, KS. This is also where I got the awesome Elizabeth Zimmermann book!!!

I'm ready for In the Pink Shawl

I found the yarn Thursday, and can't wait to start this gorgeous In the Pink  shawl!!!!

This yarn is 100% acrylic, non-pill, and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  soft.  I have to finish two other projects before I allow myself to start this.  Stay tuned!!!
