Crafting On today, Ginny says Yarn Along will be posted tomorrow.

Grey day here, I’m surprised at how accurate the colours are in the picture.  I finished up the Wonder Woman shawl this weekend, but didn’t get a chance to go to Ottawa to deliver.  Guess it’s back to Grandma’s sweater.

I forgot to share a knitting project last week for Yarn Along/Crafting On.

When I ordered the yarn for the shawl I couldn’t resist a ball of the Knit Picks Dishie.  It really is the best dish cloth cotton and I get 2 cloths (plus about 1/2 extra).  I made a regular one and one of the new Triangle to Square ones, sometimes I like to be different.

Wonder Woman is nearly finished.  I need to get moving because I hope to be in Ottawa this weekend and I can drop it off.

Crafting On/Yarn Along this week and I’m working on the shawl for my friend.  I’m really loving this new cotton yarn from Knit Picks.  It’s so soft.

Crafting On and Yarn Along today.  Not too much knitting this week.  I’ve been doing a bit of sewing/mending and that’s interrupted my knitting time.

Working on the ‘lace’ part of Grandma’s sweater.  Instead of lace, I’m using a diamond pattern like on the sweater I made Ella that Grandma liked.

I’m working on a new project.  It’s a shawl for a very dear friend.   I’m trying a new yarn from Knit Picks.  It’s mostly cotton but so soft!

A new project to share for Crafting On and Yarn Along.

Starting a new sweater for Grandma.  She can always use more sweaters.  I’m using the February Lady Sweater as a base.  I’ve made her one following the instructions.  This time I’m adding a cable to the sleeves and am going to change the pattern on the bottom section.  This is fairly close in colour, though in person it is more black.  The colour is called Asphalt Heather, so it’s not a true black.

Nothing much to share this week.  That’s how you can tell I’ve been sick, my knitting production falls off.  Finished my socks, ends all sewn in and ribbons done.

It’s so hard to take a picture of your own socks.  This angle makes my calves look huge!  In real life, the colour is a little more grey than beige, but this is close.  I need to find a new project.  I think I’m socked-out for now (besides purse knitting).

Yarn Along and Crafting on this week with a couple of things to share.

A final look at the custom sweater.  I did take out the button bands and crochet them again with a 4mm hook.  Much better.  I found some nice metal buttons (flowers) at Belinda’s Fabricland.  I heard from the recipient the other day and she loves the sweater.

My socks are nearly done.  I’m working on the casings at the top for the ribbon garters.  The very tops don’t match perfectly, but they will be hidden under my skirt so I’m OK with that.

I took a new project that I started before Easter (Toronto project).  I haven’t worked on it much.  I forgot to take a picture, I’ll have to get one for you guys later.
