Square Shawl

While in Mexico, I made a shawl for my niece and just now blocked it when I returned to Canada. I used Marianne Kinzel's pattern - "English Crystal", 350 gm of Shetland wool from Jamieson and Smith in Scotland, and 4.5 mm needles. I knitted on a sideways border of 8 stitches (knit 4, yo, k2tog - every row). I blocked it out on a king size bed to about 66 inches square and scalloped the edges.

More socks

I have always tried to knit a pair of socks every month besides my other knitting. However, they have become my favourite thing to do lately.

Simple Jumper

I knit this for my nephew, Chris, when I was in Mexico, but washed and blocked it here in Canada before giving it to him. I used Shetland wool from Jamieson and Smith in Lerwick and 3.25mm needles.

Socks

I try to do a pair of socks every month and I actually made these three pairs in one month. They are for my two nieces and my nephew. I used my favourite sock yarn - Kroy, and 2.25mm needles.

Three Sweaters and Fred Powell's Schaatsen Mutts

The brown sweater was knit with Jamieson and Smith Sheland DK (discontinued) on 4mm needles. I have no idea why I tacked down the neckband with white wool!!

Traveling Woman Shawl and a Baby Sweater

I did the Traveling Woman Shawl in The Fleece Artist's Trail Socks. It was a lot of fun and really quick. I blocked it into a triangular shape.

Sister's Sweater

I made this sweater for my sister. I used Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight and 3.25 mm needles. The colour is Thistle and is much prettier than the pictures show.

Finished up some projects

I knit a sweater for my friend Miguel while I was in Mexico but just blocked it a couple of days ago.
