Finished Stuff

Here is a sampling of some things I have done recently.

I do not take good photos so forgive that. I also do not take good notes as far as yarn, needle size etc.

I do know the main photo is a scarf made of 100% silk (Debbie Bliss) and Rowan mohair/silk blend. Feels so soft!

I really like the shawls!

I really like them.

You've been busy, I see.

Very productive...

I know what you mean about Christmas...I much prefer to make things as well...here in Maine, people can always use good knit things and are always a great hit at the holidays. Of course, I imagine it's rather similar in Colarado, especially this time of year.

Great job!

...as for taking notes for yarns and needles, etc...just make'em buy two Caron pounders and size 7 36" circulars...ought to be enough, doncha think???
