Shawl (Almost done)

The shawl is almost finished. I need to get 2 more skeins of Paton's. I sure hope I can have it done and off the needles by the wedding, just a few days away.

Need to get some tea to take with me, but want to find some with caffeine in it, need that little kick to keep me going.. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Back to knitting... Oh joined a new knitting group which is also a reading group, I think I will love it as those are my 2 favorite things to do....

Haven't posted in a few days. Busy with the wedding just around the corner. Have been working on the triangle shawl, will probably need more yarn as it does not look to be any too large. Hope to post a picture in a few days!

SHAWL >>>>>>>>>

Here is the shawl that I made for my daughter (future in-law). I had hoped to get it done for Christmas but it didn't happen. I am really happy with the results. So Happy that I might make one for me :O)

Shawl Picture 2nd try.

This is my 2nd try getting the picture here, not sure what I did to it last time, but I'm sure it was ME! Here goes...Won't let me add picture, maybe later... Have a great day everyone...

Shawl Finished....

All I have left to do is weave in the threads(2). I am hoping to someday make a lace shawl for "ME". I am hoping I can post a picture. Here goes....I think it worked....Maybe let's see :O)

The Lace scarf for My future Daughter (In-law) is finally blocked. Just finished knitting it today. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift. But just didn't get it done for whatever reason. So you guessed it! I went and bought her something cause I didn't want her to be withouot a gift. So now 10 days before the WEDDING, I managed to get the scarf done. My son will be moving away next weekend, so I can have it all wrapped up and he can take it to her... I sure hope she likes it :O) Now to find something to KNIT!

Introducing..... "LINUS"

I thought I would introduce you to one of my favorite Pets!

Linus is a Bronze Winged Pionus. He is the sweetest. One would ask, does he talk? Well of course silly! He greets me when I get up, when I get home and whenever he sees me :O) Linus is such a joy to have around... I will admit, he is rather "MESSY". He loves to shred Phone books, so... He has his very own! If I can figure this out, I'll post a picture..... OK looks like I need someone to walk me through the posting of pictures. But I Promise, as soon as I get this figured out I'll get one on here.

Off to KNIT!

MORE Yarn!

I know I didn't really need to purchase more yarn, but I DID!

I was not happy with the yarn I was using for the Easy Triangle Shawl, so I went to Jo Ann's after work and bought 4 skeins of Patons. ( will be double stranding as a friend had suggested(you know who you are!) Anyway I want to get started on the shawl, got me some markers and also a new #13, 29 inch circular needle, that is the longest they had. I prefer bamboo to the plastic, but will use what is available.

So when I make some progress and figure out how to put a picture here, I will...

Off to knit! :O)

Another Project

OK I could not help myself !

My dear friend told me how much fun the "Easy Triangle Shawl" was. So... Need I say anymore? I cast on, found a skein of the Lion brand Homespun, Not fond of that yarn, so tomorrow I will stop and see what else is available.

I must admit, the shawl is a really fun pattern, it also helps that my friend gave me the directions with the amount of stitches listed after each row. That has helped me tremendously. "THANKS DEAR FRIEND CATHY"......

ok back to getting caught up on laundry, the buzzer just rang!

First time Blogger!

Hi everyone! Well this is my first time blogging. So Please bear with me. Thought I should give a small introduction. I sure don't want to bore you....

I have been knitting for about 3 years, I'm self taught and have tons yet to learn. I also work full time at a school for children with autism. I absolutely LOVE my job :O), Knitting is my way of relaxing.. It is a stress reliever...

I am getting ready for my son's wedding here in a few short weeks, so I really need to knit lots ,LOL!

I currently have several projects in the making.. And my friend Cathy has talked me into starting another, she says it is a no brainer...Still need to get the yarn for the shawl.

Thanks for reading and I hope I was not TOO BORING!
