Another Shawl finished :)

This one is definately for "Me".....
It is the perfect size that I like and the weight is how I like it and the color is nice... Its a green with specks of red-yellow-white and black in it... A cotton yarn.. I do not know the name because I bought skeins of it years ago without labels on them...
The Pattern is from Ravelry.. Elanas Simple Shawl... I did a border on it with points.. I didn't block it so thats whay they are not so "pointy".. But I plan on just throwning it in the washer like my Friend Mary does with her cotton shawl.. Hopefully I will get some wear out of this one..

Now I have a few more shawls that I just have to make BUT... Its time to do some sweaters for the Kiddos being that it will be getting cold pretty soon... First on the list is Claire because she is in Buffalo... Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

I haven't posted a completed Project this week .. So just incase you think I have been sitting around
with " Idle Hands from Devils Workshop"..
These are th WIPS I am working on.. Well... SOME of them :)

This is The All Way Wrap from Fall 09 Interweave Knitters...
The Cable Design in the pattern was giving me a real pain in the Butt so after three trys I decide to go with My Own Cable Pattern.. It looks Lovely and Feels so nice.. Its a long Wrap so it will be a while till I finish it especially with so many other projetcs going on.. But it will be such Fun when they all come to the Finish Line :)

This is a Simple Shawl from Ravelry....Lala's Simple Shawl....
I have had skeins of this yarn For a while now.. So I finally started something with it..
I also gave some to my Knit Friends and they will be making something of their choice..
It looks all green here but it has specks of black, yellow & red in it..

The Beginning of an Afghan.. The actual colors are pink and lilac but it looks like blue and white here which also looks nice :)
Can you see The Hearts ???? No... Look Again ..... Ok..... Now Your See Them, Right!!!

I did a hat to go with The Scarf I am making... I started the scarf and then remembered that I had another skein so I did the hat so that now I know how much I have left for the scarf.. Make sense ?? Ohhh Sure it does....
The Hat is Cabled and The scarf is a simple K2 p1 pattern.. I started with a slip stitch on the ends..

I hd this glorious ball of oh so soft Alpaca which was given to me last year from a Friend.. ...Lori...
I don't know how much is in it but I started this scarf and it looks like it will make a pretty good length... It feels wonderful!!!!
The Scarf Pattern is from Yarn Harlot.. Another simple K2, K tbl, p1... Easy Peasy!!!

I made some more Fish Cloths !!!!

I was lucky to get Two hats out of the Skein of yarn that Jeme..My Swap partner sent me.. Now.. Funny and wonderful that it turned out I had the same Swap Partner for Two swaps.. Boy was I Lucky.. I could not have asked for a nicer partner :) So these Hats are from the yarn that I got in the First swap...I did two different designs and see how different the yarns came out.. This is a lousy photo which does not show the cables at all... They are really much nicer in person.. I have to figure out how to get better photos :(

Shawls Shawls Shawls................................
I have been thinking alot about wraping myself up in a nice cozy shawl.. I have two big skeins of Cascade Eocological yarn that a Dear Friend of mine gave me before she passed away.. I wanted to make something nice for myself and A Shawl is what I decided.
I will think of Lori every time I wear it.
I searched and searched for that one shawl to catch my fancy and I finallly decided on The Forest Canopy Shawl.. I am really loving this one.. As I am knitting on it I am already planning on what other yarns I have in My Stash to make another one.. It can be done in any weight yarn just adjust your needle and pattern repeats accordingly...The pattern is very well written and I highly recommend it...
I ordered mine on line and it was as easy peasy... If you don't use pay pal they do take credit cards..
Now about where to get it.. Well.. I don't have the link on hand here so Google The Forest Canopy Shawl and you will be led in the right direction.
Have Fun with it and I'm sure like me ... you will be addicted to making more of them .

Hats Hats and More Hats....
Ok So I got a little Crazy this week with the cool air blowing through the house and thought I had better get going on some things to keep us all warm...
The First is a Black Cable Alpaca hat which is just so soft that I just want to keep touching it... Don't know if I will be able to give this one up???

This is one that I made from a Wonderful Skein of yarn that my Swap Partner sent me in May..The photo does not so it justice. There are cables on the bottom half and the yarn is really so pretty and soft.. Its a handpainted yarn and I am working on a second hat with it... :)

This is The All Way Wrap from Interweave Knitting Fall 09... I had a very frustrating time getting the cable rows set up correctly.. I must have pulled it out 3 times and said.. "OK One more chance" and well then it behaved itself and did wat it was supposed to.. Thank Goodness.. I think if I have any further problems I am just going to change the Cable Part to something that I can handle safely without screaming and ranting and raving about the stupid mistakes in the pattern.. Ha Ha.. Its Always the patterns fault.. isn't it???

A Oh So Soft Scarf from My Same Swap Partner that I got a few weeks ago...The Colors are georgeous and I don't think I can give this one up either :) I am thinking this will look really nice around My Neck this Winter while taking my cool evening walk :)
Thank You Jeme for these beautiful Yarns....
