Forsyth Shawl

There is a new shawl pattern in my Ravelry Shop. I am so excited to debut the Forsyth Shawl.
This is a garter stitch shawlette that incorporates stripes and eyelet rows for added interest. With a unique shaping technique, this is a quick knit project because it used worsted weight yarn and a larger needle. This project can be knit up over a weekend. The picot bind off adds interest to the edge with a little bit of sass. It can be worked into a larger shawl by adding more repeats and stripes.

New yarn stashed

I got this yarn from a lady on Ravelry and I am very excited to work up a new design with it. It is the same base yarn as the yarn I used for my Leg Warmers. This colorway is called Fig Tart. It has some dark chocolate color along with light pinks and greens with a little yellow thrown into the mix. 

I can't wait to see how this works up. Since it is a hand-painted yarn I don't know if it will pool. I plan on knitting up a swatch to see how it will work up. I am thinking about making a pair of long finger-less gloves with the same stitch pattern that I used for the legwarmers .  

This a Shawl in a ball from Lion Brand and I am planning on using it to knit up a new pattern that I have designed. I will also add 4 of the bon bon yarns to it to add some stripes of color. 

I love these little Bon Bons from Lion Brand, they are going to be split into 2 sets and then made up into shawls

Glimpses of my life

A new tea added to by stash. It is very good. 

This is the view from my back porch. 

My chickens are giving me super giant eggs. 

He is 6 months old but looks like he is only 2 months old, and he loves my lap now.

Leg Warmers on the go

I got this yarn from a stash on Ravelry and I am loving the way it is knitting up. This is a pattern that I will be releasing soon. I am almost finished with the second one now and I really need to take a picture of the progress. This is Marianne Dashwood from Yarn Love. The colorway is Amore. I love how the greens and blues interplay with each other. 

I am using the magic loop technique to knit these and I love how easy it is to do. This is my first time working magic loop, I have always worked on DPNs. 

I have also been bit by the Beekeeper's Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits
I am working on my first hexipuff but I chose a scrap yarn that I thought would be enough and ran out before I was finished so I am back to the beginning.  I will post my progress as I get them knitted up.
