Kathleen's Majesty

Mmario designed this shawl from a picture of of “The Courtyard of the Maidens” Alcázares Reales de Sevilla, and named it for my wife.

Haruni Shawl

I have a neighbor who has done so much to help my wife and I as we struggle with my illness. So I finally made a shawl for her.

I just completed a baby blanket for my first grandson (who was born yesterday!). It is the "Laughing Cat Shawl" design from Mmario.

Trachtentuch A - with ruffled edge

You may remember I posted a pic of a red Valentine's Day shawl I made for my wife. She loved it but wished it had a ruffly edge.

Daughter's wedding veil update

Well it's been just over a year since I started this wedding veil. And, my daughter's had 3 new boyfriends since then so I guess there's no hurry.

swirled log cabin??

I have seen a pattern for a log cabin (dishcloth I believe) that starts out with the traditional square but then each of the subsequent "rectangles" are more pie slice shaped so that it forms a swirl

Is this a perfect Valentine's gift for my wife or what?

I started with yarn and a needle size that would have made this a shawl for an elephant!

I'm a HORRIBLE knitter

The hat that I just posted was the first non-lace thing I've done in a long while. It was knit in the round and done completely in stockinette. My tension is awful!

Flapper hat

No - not flap hat - flapper - think 1920's. I designed this for my wife but she hasn't been around when I had the camera out so my dog (Maggie) modeled it. It looks MUCH better on my wife!
