On my needles now

is this project.
Knitting it for a lady in the knitting group I go to. She started it, but was having a hard time with it. I wanted to knit it; love the pattern ... but it's not something I would wear... so I'd never knit one for myself. So, I offered to knit hers for her.
I'll post pictures of hers when I get a chance :)
Forgot to tell you, it's the Waves and Ripples Shrug in Knitter's Magazine Spring, 2010. I'm using 4.5mm needles, and a 2ply yarn; not sure what the yarn is, there were no labels with it when I got it. 282 stitches/row

The Frozen Leaves Shawl :)

Today is was finally non-windy enough that I could get a sheet of styrofoam home to block the shawl. Well, most of the way home ... it did break :( But the piece that survived was big enough to block the shawl on. Then I sat it in front of a nice sunny windown to dry. I'm quite pleased with it :)

And looking forward to the next one. The next one will be a shawl for an exchange .. then Northern Lights is calling to me.

Tomorrow a friend and I are planning a Frenchy's shopping trip. Looking forward to that.

Have a good weekend
