Happy Thanksgiving

We had a very happy Thanksgiving.
I was able to finish the shawls in time and gave them to my very grateful aunt, who is like my second mother. I was very happy.
Then decided to use stash and knit my cousin a scarf out of some Danette Taylor handpaint-no pics though I knit it Friday and she wore it home Saturday;-)
The ladies in our family do not hit the mall on Friday. We hit the antique shops. Living in a smallish town does have its advantages. Antiques can be a steal! I bought two pieces which I am especially proud of. The tatted piece was 10$ and the knit round table cover was 30$ plus 20% off of both for the holidays!
Socks for me are finally done and I can knit on whatever I please!!!

bad,bad girl

I know I haven't posted in forever. It's been busy around here. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.

I have been working on the third obligation shawl. It is almost finished:-)

All other projects have been put aside. This is a list of my 'active' projects, Madli's shawl out of handspun cormo/silk,top down triangle shawl with various yarns+handspun in my own pattern, two pairs of socks,and two sweaters one in ksh from a Rowan book and one from the new Sally Melville book.

I also finished spinning and am in the process of plying some merino silk. I bought a bunch of fiber in different natural sheep colors and different sheep breeds and it has my creative juices flowing. I can't wait to get my hands on this stuff, it is killing me.

Well I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.
