Recent Projects

I don't seem to do anything except knit these days.

This green and blue shawl is my first lace project. Very simple. The fabulous yarn from Three Irish Girls is stunning.

The blue and gray shawl is wonderfully warm; I've already worn it several times. Looks great with jeans. This yarn came out of the sale bin at our local yarn shop. It's Rusti
c by Cascade Yarns. The pattern is the Feather and Fan shawl from the book "Folk Shawls".

This sculpture stands in the atrium at the local coffee shop where we meet on Tuesdays to knit. It's a great "dress form"

These socks are made from a
yarn specially dyed for our local shop by Stitchy Jones. These simple lace socks were designed by Betsy McCarthy, who is in my Tuesday group. Her book "Knit Socks!" is great for learning how to make socks.
