Shawlly I'll Finish This Soon

I'm loving this Adagio shawl's easy on the mind. I photographed only one side to give you a better view of the shawl pattern and its coloring. I'm trying to take advantage of the color changes I created through dyeing the yarn.I hope to end the ruffle with the darkest colors.

Now here's a book from the past that's worth seeing!!! Barbara Walker's Cable Stitch Knitting.I borrowed it from the library. I believe it is out of print.It has the most wonderful array of aran stitch patterns some of which are 22-26 inches wide.

Last night I enjoyed knitting at Sue's. Sadly, Paula , Judy and Patty were not there. BarbaraT. Sue, Carol R, Bea and I shared stories and projects as always. It never fails to disappoint me when I attend. Barbara worked on her sheep socks, CarolR brought a special guest, her dog!!! Sue showed us her new patterns from Knitpiks...a wonderful bed jacket which is a fund raiser for breast cancer. Bea was working on her wonderfully colorful felted bags, which she will have available at the Annual Art/Craft Show& Sale (formerly Wearable Art) in West Kingston at the Courthouse Center on Rt 138 just 1.5 miles from URI on December2 and December 3. How wonderful for her to be incluced in this juried show. Way to go Bea!!!!
