Zimmermann's Tomten jacket............

I was inspired by Vsidart's "Baby Surprise Jacket" and as soon as I FIND my pattern, think that I should start one. In the meantime I pulled out EZ's "Knitting Without Tears".

Forest Canopy Shawl Delivered!

I started working on the Forest Canopy Shawl about a month ago and soon discovered that I couldn't talk and knit lace at the same time. Not wise just before all or the summer company arrived.
