Yarn Along – Re-Knits and Gifts

yarnalong_gsheller_gray
On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

My wish wasn’t as I wished!
nove 6  redo 001It wasn’t as full as I like.
My favorite yarn shop, Babetta’s Yarn and Gifts’
(be sure to visit if you are ever in the Sacramento area) guru
suggested adding a wedge panel to each front edge.
he adding has begun.

Gingko Crescent was a disappointment also,
not the pattern but my tight knitting;
which I find strange because I usually knit very loose.
nove 6  redo 002
So frogged, and began again with larger needles,
being conscious of my tension and adding beads.

Susie’s Coffee I LOVE IT!

nove 6 suzi - hugs 001and hanging on the trellis

Birthday hug from my daughter

nove 6 suzi - hugs 004Birthday in August, but just took pictures

nove 6 suzi - hugs 005I love it!
I don’t know the name of the pattern

nove 6 suzi - hugs 006It’s full and flowing and wraps around like a hug,
That’s the best kind of shawl, I think.

I been re-listening to Dee Henderson’s the O’Mallay series while knitting.

Today I’m joining Tami’ WIP (works in progress) as Ginny at Yarn along gave birth to a baby boy this week.

Yarn Along — I Like Yarn

july 3   yarn along 006I finished this one October 9, 2013. No picture yet, it is at my daughter’s, she blocks for me. I love this pattern! I want to make me one, it is a crescent shaped half circle and wraps around me like a hug. What more can I ask for in a shawl. Ravelry link.

oct  23   my wish, ginko, new jane 006“My Wish’ started October 10. I have been very faithfully (for me) knitting on this until Tuesday until I had to babysit 3 girlies under 4 and didn’t want to try beading with six busy hands. I’m having fun with this one. Ravelry link

oct  23   my wish, ginko, new jane 009Gingko Crescent was my choice, plain knitting K2, yo, k, yo edging, BUT I,m using #5 and I think I should use #6. Decisions, decisions Ravelry link
