September shawls

I just finished this shawl and gave it to JoAnne for her cousin in New Mexico who has numerous health issues. I used Cotton Ease which I got last year when it was being "discontinued." The color is called pistaccio and seems to fit the Southwest. I got the oattern here
This next shawl was made for my friend Karen whose brother died over the summer. Digital photos are always a surprise to me. This shawl is NOT purple, but a rosey mauve. I used Plymouth Encore Chunky Bulky Knitting Weight yarn and a size L hook. The pattern is not available for sharing. I have not given it to Karen yet because she is on a fabulous knitting tour in New Zealand and Australia for 2 weeks!! But this should keep her warm when she gets back to Colorado. I
love this pattern and will make more shawls using it. I will try ww yarn next time. The pattern is on this web site

Scarf for the military

I don 't remember when I agreed to make a scarf for a deployed military person. The message got lost in my inbox with all of the trips I have taken. Anyway, I found the message, made this scarf and sent it off. I only wish I had time to make more, but the deadline is this month!

Recent projects finished

These are some baby hats that I crocheted and sent to Lil' Troopers where they go to military hospitals for families of our troops. I love making baby items and they are very much needed.

Addition to blog

I added a sidebar where I have put pictures of all of my completed projects (so far) for the year. I am going to edit some of my posts so I am not repeating them. I hope this works!
