WIP (Work in Progress) Pics

112_1256.jpg I have finished my week’s worth of stitching on Giggles in the Snow and I love how it is working so far!  What a cutie!  It will be hard to put it away today and pull out the next project in the rotation …. but I can look forward to seeing it again in February.  I think I am going to have to do these Snow Angels again for myself!

112_1257.jpg  I cast on for a rectangular shawl this past week – using Melody from Jojoland on 2 3/4 mm needles.  I have not used this yarn before but am very pleased with both the texture as it knits and the color – which of course is nearly impossible to capture on film.  The sunlight brings out the purples but there is a lot of green in here too …..  see

112_12581.jpg   hmmm…. maybe you can’t see it no matter what I do.  Ah well.  I am using the Woodland Shawl pattern that you can find here:


and I plan to add a knit on lacey border too!

    It’s so cold here now that I’m even thinking about knitting a shawl. Thank you for the link, it’s a pretty shawl that you are working on.

    I love GINTS, so pretty colors.
