Fiber Fun

"F"inished -- Leafy Lisa Shawlette.  Pattern by Kelli Slack.   I used Misty Alpaca Chunky.  After the practice piece - the real wrap was easier to knit.   The chunky yarn was my first time using -- i got used to it after a few rows.     Below, practice piece 'wrap' for souvenir doll.  

In photo below, B E E S W A X!   From GF.     Local friend's DH has hives - and I am supposed to keep this sealed up ... yet it has such a fine scent!     I have not had my sewing out (will this week, need to tidy up some origami bags) and will use on my thread.

My progress (sorry, not finish) of the Woolenberry KAL.   Herald by Woolenberry.    The yarn is lovely to knit - Blooming Yarns Cashino.  
... and, Antarktis by Woolenberry.    Sadly, only a few more rows added ...

Radiating Hearts pattern by Evelyn Clark - probably for Lace Day raffle ... I used Lion Brand 24/7 cotton yarn.

yarnie update

 Delightful mail (yesterday).   My name chosen from a Facebook Giveaway.   Gallant Cowel kit (pattern by Meghan Jones) and Plymouth Yarn.

I am participating in a Woolenberry KAL.   I have Herald on circular needles, Cashino yarn purchased with DH last Fall in Bloomington, IN.   It is a lovely pattern by Janina Kallio.   

Here is Antarktis, another Woolenberry pattern by Janina Kallio.  This seems more challenging to me.  Yarn is Cashino Blooming yarns (Bloomington, IN).

 Leafy Lisa wrap needs one more 'leaf' and it will be completed.  This is a pattern by Kelli Slack.   Yarn is Misty Alpaca Chunky.    I found some green yarn in my bag, purchased at an Ireland exhibit held at the Art Institute of Chicago.   I am thinking to try the Irish yarn with this pattern - I think that is is a wonderful pattern, it knits up quickly, and would be fun to have a wrap with green leaves, too.

I removed the goofy yarn mess & started a new 'bottom' of the Mosaic Bag.  (pattern by Cindy Walker).   It is lovely.   I have enough yarn (Erika Knight British Blue Wool) for a second bag.   Then will create the cord/drawstring.    I may have to change the colors a little bit for the 2nd bag.    

 My hat is done!   DD and I bought yarn (Rios, Malabrigo) in St. Charles, IL following a Riverdance performance.   This is a nice spiral knit hat pattern by Ann Norling.

My hitchhiker wrap is a bit longer - still not complete.

 I'm delighted Debbie Trainor has a new book of pattern out.  I'm looking forward to knitting a few dresses for soap bottles.
