It's Done

40 minutes ago I cast off the final stitch of the Frozen Leaves Shawl.

Now I need to find a place to block it.

No pictures yet, because right now it doesn't look like much. Pictures once it is blocked, I promise.

Next on the needles will be a shawl for the shawl exchange I am in on Ravelry. Can't post any details of it though, because my partner might decide to snoop at my blog. I hope she will like it.

Still working on thrummed socks, and my socks.

The knitting group I go to is knitting clothes for Groovy Girl dolls, and for teddy bears. Once we are done we will give them to the Library where we meet, and they will sell tickets on them. One of our members has created some really neat clothes for them. So far I haven't made anything. Now that the shawl is done I'll make something.

Have a good day

In trouble again

Well, seems to mee I'm in trouble for not posting enough. So, here it is, a posting :)

I'm laid up today. My right knee hurts a lot. Was to outpaitents last night, and the doctor thinks it is arthritis. I think I want to see my own doctor and get his opinion. I know I won't be putting up with this pain for long!! I'm not happy hurting so much that it's hard to walk.

But, on the plus side, I'm knitting on the Frozen Leaves Shawl. 22 pattern repeats in each row. Right now each section has 28 stitches in it. Yup, 616 stitches in the last row I did!! And it's still slowly growing!! Only 20 rows left to go though. Looking forward to being finished ... so I can start a new one :)

I joined a small shawl exchange online, in a Ravelry group. Looking forward to working on that one. Think I might use beads on it. Not going to tell too much about it, incase my partner in the swap decides to read here.

I'm also working on 2 pair of thrummed socks/slippers that were ordered, and a pair of socks for me.

Have a good one!!

Happy Day After Groundhog Day

We're still shoveling out. So much snow. And the snowblower isn't working :( Hubby was able to get out the driveway to go to work this morning. I was working on the mailbox area when the guy came to plow across the road from us. Got him to do a few swipes of our driveway ... for $5. Most people would charge $20 for that. I was a happy lady.
But, on the down side ... I did do a bit too much shoveling, and hurt my shoulder a bit.
I have finished a pair of socks this year - no pictures yet.
I'm still working on the frozen leaves shawl; really enjoying it.
We've got a new item that we are selling - hand crafted wooden toboggans.
