I have an FO! My Margaret Dashwood Shawl from the current Jane Austen Knits magazine has been completed!
I wasn't sure that I would have enough of my handspun yarn so it has been shortened a little bit, but it is still a great size for me! I decided to wear it pinned across with a shawl pin. I did end up having a few extra yards left; enough to make a matching flower headband!
Closeup of the pattern and the shawl pin I made from a chopstick! Using my dad's branch cutters, I cut the top of the chopstick off and sanded the bottom to be a little sharper and rounded off all the edges. A nice coat of complimentary purple paint and I am ready to step out in my new ensemble!
Well, school is coming up soon (Senior year already!!) and I need a lunch box so I don't keep using brown paper bags! (Costly and not environmentally friendly) In a recent email newsletter from Lion Brand Yarn, I got a pattern for a cute felted lunch bag and I cast on!
Technically, I need some longer needles but these will suffice!
Grrr! Winding the yarn from a skein (Cascade Peruvian wool yarn) without a yarn swift is such a pain! Always a tangle...
I have been feeling quite productive as of late! To end the evening with a little laugh:
How do you win Words with Friends? Play your name of course! ;)
