I do, however have some news to announce. No, I'm not getting married neither am I pregnant.
I have FINALLY finished my cousin Sarah's prayer shawl! Isn't she beautiful?
The only bad thing about this shawl is it has beads that you have to add to your stitches, and as God as my witness, I'll never do beading again!
On a lighter note, Sarah did love her shawl.
What else have I been up to you ask? Well, I have been testing some patterns for stitchnerd on Ravelry. I did the Niagara Cowl, and I'm test knitting the Peruvian Central and Slytherin Shawls. If you'd like to participate, head over to the stitchnerds Group on Ravelry.
For my Niagara Cowl, I used my Malabrigo Sock yarn that I bought a few months ago.
For my Peruvian Central Shawl, I'm using Unger's Pima from Peru. It's knitting up very nicely and I really like the pattern. It's very easy to do.
Noro Cash Iroha in a pretty deep teal green color. It was given to my by my knitting friend Marcia, who will forever have my deep and abiding gratitude for introducing me to the glorious Cash Iroha. Thank you Marcia!
Here's what the yarn looks like.
Not too bad for a first time spinner.
Well, I have to get off here and help my mom clean for Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful holiday and if I don't get to post before the new year, Merry Christmas and have a safe and happy New Years!
