Oh, Well.....

It seems I blog even less than I knit these days, and that's saying a lot.

Last month, on Mandy's birthday, Monica's family and mine finally had our Christmas. Monica gave me some beautiful Fleece Artist and Knit One Crochet Too sock yarn. Love the colors!!

I did finish the baby blanket - well, except for the border. Mandy did find out that her friend is having a baby girl, so I will need to see what girly color yarn I have in my stash that will go with the yarn I've used. I think it turned out quite nice.

I also started a shawl for myself. I have 7 skeins of Patons Rumor in color 9742-Moonstone. It looks like stained glass and has alpaca in it, so it should keep me warm. I'm using an online pattern from the Prayer Shawl Ministry . Very simple pattern that is knitting up nicely. I'm using my Denise Needles for this with the size 13 needles. I started this on the 9th...we'll see how long it takes to get it done. Hopefully before I need it.
I think that's all I have for now. Take care and happy knitting!

I didn't know you had started a shawl. Hope you knit that Fleece Artist up soon so I can see how it looks

It's good to see you around Karen! Your baby blanket is so pretty! I've never worked that pattern before but I love the look. Can't wait to see what those sock yarns develop into. Take care!
