MONTHY POST


I received my first Mystery Batt in the mail a couple of days ago.  Beautiful and so easy to spin.


I spun and plied it.  I can't decide if I like it but I do have a small skein of yarn to add to a project.


I finally finished my shawl.  I got the pattern from Susan B Anderson, Yowza Weigh It Shawl.


So, so easy.  You weigh your yarn and knit inceasing along as you after you've used half of the yarn you start the ruffle and then bid off. 


I've been knitting tams.  Ok, so I just have one done so far but I like it now I've got to go and buy more yarn.


Back of hat.  I do like it.

I have to tell you about a blog I've discovered this week.  Sheepishy Sharing.  The reason I found it I received my Addi Express Knitting machine.  I've been wanted to get one but finally decided what the heck and got one.  I've finished a few hats. Works quick and very easy with great results.  I'll share photos soon. Sheepishy Sharing is also listed on the side of my blog under the blogs I read.  Great You Tube video and many crochet one too.

HAYWARD SHAWL


It's about time I post.  I can't believe its been almost a month.  Busy with Christmas and all the errands associated  with this time of the year.  I finally finished my Hayward Shawl   And I love it!!  It was designed by Susan B Anderson.  She's a wonderful knitter and has great podcasts too.  In fact if you look up an image of the shawl on Google there are much better photos of it.


Back.  So much fun to knit and not very hard.  It had a couple of different sections and has long as you paid attention to what you were knitting it was fun and went very fast.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE.  MY BEST WISHES FOR A WONDERFUL 2015!!!
