Knitting Catch Up


Last October (!) I wanted something to accessorize blue denim. 
Sniffing around I found . . . 

. . . The Fibre Company's Quaking Aspen Shawl 
using their own Acadia 
which is merino, alpaca and silk.

 An easy pattern and lovely yarn, but too much of it left over.

 The lace worked up quickly.

It's heading for the B and B today.
 It must go from its current measurement of 38"x20" to 60"x24". 
Yikes.

Next project on the needles - a Swoncho. 
This pattern can be found in the Fall 2012 edition of Love of Knitting magazine. 
Tanis Fiber Arts Orange label is to 'dye' for.
This MUST be completed in 4 weeks.

Oops! The headless wonder is yet to be finished.
