The Striped Shawl

So I showed a striped shawl the other day.. that was one of my commissioned pieces!
I made it for Authentic Knitting Board to be included in one of their kits.. you can find it here: Harvest Lace Shawl Pattern Kit

The pattern is there for download as well. I liked it so much I made another one.. which is going to be a prayer shawl which I REALLY need to send out! This one I knit on needles just to mix it up a bit! One of these days I will also make one for myself!


That shelf is part of my new crafty work area.. I am awaiting the big piece to finish putting it all together! I pre- ordered a Workbox 3.0!! I can’t wait to have it set up completely and have a lot of my stuff organized in one place! This little shelf is a good start. Now I finally have all my knitting books and magazines together!

So What Have I Been up To?

Wow! It’s been a while.. I have been knitting and working and many of you may have seen my latest book that came out last year!

If not here it is!

I like this one it was fun to knit hats! They are a quick and easy project! My favorite is the one on the top left with the flower pin!! So easy that one!

Another thing I have been doing is knitting a lot of prayer shawls and a few items for commission. I have knitted a log cabin blanket, a mermaid tail and a whole whack of prayer shawls.

Lately, I have been researching for another book project with my mother, that is a bit different than my other ones. It has involved, and will involve, some travel to go see some really neat items! I can’t talk about it just yet… but I can’t wait to share it with you!

I have also been starting on a journey to make my home healthier! Eliminating chemicals and cleaning naturally by using essential oils and other products. I am going to try to start blogging a bit more often. At least once a week and updating the site so keep watching this space!

Knitty!

After an hour and a half on the phone with technical support to try to fix a problem on our homeschooling site, and the conclusion of a LONG project.. I thought I deserved cookies.. but hey the new issue of Knitty is out.. so that will work!

Off to enjoy!

I am really liking the Hugga Shrug!
