On and Off the Needles

I just realized that I finished the pomegranate colored Lucia Tee summer sweater (see this post) and did not take a picture.  I was so excited about how it turned out that I called the recipient and immediately delivered it to her.  She was thrilled with the color!!  It turned out really nice!!  The yarn was CotlLin from Knit Picks and it's a really nice yarn to work.with!

Another project I recently finished was this little dress and jacket for The Daughter's baby.

The pattern for the dress is out of last summer's Debbie Bliss magazine.  You knit the top then add a fabric skirt.  I added the little jacket because Wyoming can get snow even in the summer time lol!

This is a scarf I started the other day.  It's a little slow going but I love the way the colors are coming out!  The yarn is some really nice fingering weight superwash merino and cashmere that my husband got me for my birthday when we were still dating.  He knows what I like!!

And finally, this is a shawl I made as a sample for the shop.  The one yarn is some of my hand dyed lace weight merino yarn and the other is some of SWTC's new yarn I sell in my shop called String Me Along--a novelty yarn featuring sequins that comes in a million colors. 

I love the way it turned out!! (sorry the pictures aren't so great.  The camera on my phone is not the best)

The pattern for the shawl can be found on Ravelry Here.  It's a really simple pattern that works up quickly.  Depending on the yarn it can look a lot like peacock feathers.

And that wraps up the past couple of weeks :)  Right now on the needles is a pair of glittens--my pattern--for my dad for Father's Day.

Happy Knitting!
