So Long, Farewell

I'm soon going to be tied up with a business meeting, and I know there will be no time to post with that going on. Here are some photos for you to share what we've been up to lately.

Daughter and I knitted Booga Bags several months ago. We just got around to felting hers this weekend. Here's a photo of it. The flower on the bag is one I crocheted for daughter using some of her leftover Noro Kureyon. It is attached to a pin back, so she can take it off the bag later.


I finished two projects of my own over the weekend. First we have a bathing suit coverup that I knit for daughter using Lion Brand Microspun. The photo is just a close up shot of the stitch pattern. You can see the free pattern and more details here. I don't care for yarn, because it splits. However, the cover is nice and soft, and the color is great.


Here's a super size Clapotis that I made for myself. I added 6 additional increase sections. The yarn is some Knitpicks that husband dyed especially for me.


Finally, here's my latest work in progress. You can really tell a lot, can't you?

I'm making Diamond Fantasy Shawl pattern by Sivia Harding. The yarn is Knitpicks Shimmer in color Stained Glass.

Everything looks great. I've seen the Diamond Fantasy Shawl on other blogs, and they are beautiful, so I'm sure yours will be too.

The crochet flower really makes the bag snazzy. Great thinking.

Your daughter did a wonderful job on the bag!

The clapotis is a very fun color. Nice job on the dye Mr.DonnaSC!

I'm constantly amazed, though no idea why I should be, at how nicely the microspun knits up.
