I made another square shawl for a niece. Although I have made lots of these, I find them interesting and relaxing. This one is made with Jamieson and Smith Shetland wool (colourway - Periwinkle) on 4.5mm needles. It measures 68 inches x 68 inches. I finished it with a sideways garter stitch border that I found in my "knitting book" and have no idea where I found it.
I checked this one out several times from the library across the street when it was still open. Finally I just bought it. Informative, concise, clear pictures and separated into single-color and multiple-color, light, medium and heavy-weight yarns has made this my go-to book for stitches.
Just for a larf. :)
I've been drooling over signature needles for years. However, I have never been up-close and personal with their circulars. Does anyone know if they are good for magic loop? I'm thinking about asking the Hubby for a set for my birthday.
New grey sweater in progress...
I'm not quite happy with it but I might be if I could ever wear it. The day after I finshed it the temp shot up to 76° and is supposed to be near 80 for the next week. It's still winter for God's sake.

The Scrabble Bag was a quick knit but an enjoyable one. In addition to the cable fun, is the i-cord. It was much easier to make than I thought it would be and I think it turned out pretty well. The cabling is on both sides. I think I will make another one using some entrelac stitching and put a Scrabble tile on each side.
It's my birthday today, so I figured I'd finally introduce myself and post my projects.
