Good morning! I've been kniting, knitting, knitting lately. I finally finished my Snug Shrug (pattern Eve's Ribs raveled here), and I'm pretty happy with it. What a brilliant designer Carol Sunday is. Until the last minute, I had my doubts that this was going to come out okay, but I just knitted along hopefully, and it did -- whew! When finished, you just sew together the two side seams and you have a shrug/cardi.
(sad little 'autumn leaves' display, isn't it -- but there aren't many around here yet -- should call it 'leaves from trees that died from the wicked drought' instead -- plenty of those around -- sad to say)
I had a hard time getting a good photo of this color. And I don't know how well the leafy lacy rib pattern shows up, but it's very nice I think.
Anyhoo, must get going. I'm going to run over to Tyler today to do some Christmas shopping and maybe a tiny bit of yarn shopping for this blanket, this sweater, and this vest (and why is it, that no matter how much yarn you have in your stash, none of it is ever right for the new project you want to cast on -- is it just me?). Which reminds me, there's a new LYS in Tyler. It's called Knotty Girls Stitchery -- a very nice shop, and they have a good selection of yarn for knitting as well as all kinds of other needley crafts. So, if you're in the area, you might want to check it out.
Have a great week!
