This is a pic of the Peacock Feathers by Fiddlesticks Knitting designed by Dorothy Siemens listed below.

This is the Peacock Feathers Shawl designed by Dorothy Siemens from Fiddlesticks Knitting. I am doing it with Jaggerspun Zephyr in Bottle Green. See pic above.

Another shawl design by Anna Dalvi that I am working on is Mystic Earth. I am using Ella Rae Merino Lace in color 110, lime/yellow/tan. I just love this yarn.

I am doing Summer Shawl by Badcat Designs with cone lace yarn that a friend gave me years ago in a turquoise color. I am on pattern 4 or 5 right now.

I am also working on a sweater from Vogue Knitting Fall 2008 using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in 203 Autumn Print

I am doing this baby sweater using Bernat Baby Jacquard in color Berries n Cream pink/yellow/white it is very pretty, self striping. I love this yarn

This is another shawl I am working on it is called Slow Bee Mystery. It is done on cone yarn that a friend of mine has given me years ago, the color is a lavender in color.

Updated projects that I am doing 4/26/09

I have done this afghan so many times, the pattern book is falling apart. I have scanned the pattern on my computer and copied a working copy to work with. I recently made this afghan for my daughter-in-law's sister Courtney for her baby shower next month.

This is the baby afghan I am knitting for Courtney for after the baby is born. I am knitting it with Plymouth Dreambaby D.K. in a tan color and plan to embroider the baby's name and birthdate in pink for they already know it is a girl.

This is the Oregon Shawl designed by Joan Shrouder. I am using Jaggerspun Zephyr in purple for this shawl.

Great American Afghan book of squares

This square pattern is in the Great American Afghan book by Traci Bunkers. I plan to make each square in this book. No timeline but I am going to try. This square took only two days to do. I plan to make it square a different color.

Peacock Feathers by Fiddlesticks Knitting KAL

I am doing the Peacock Feathers KAL, I just finished Chart 1 and 1A and will be ready for chart 2 when I get to work on it again. The yarn is by Jaggerspun Zephyr in the bottle green color. I just love this yarn. Usually I am allergic to wool but this combination I do not feel the itchy fingers when I have touched wool before. I cannot get it here in Wichita, so whenever my son comes up from Plano, or I, my brothers go down there, I call in a order of yarn from the Woolie Ewe in Plano, Texas. That store is to die for! Anyone that finds themselves in Plano, Texas must stop in to see Woolie Ewe, you won't regret it.

I have signed up for so many Knitalongs

This is the first clue on one of my knitalongs. It is the Slow Bee Mystery I Shawl Knitalong. I am doing it on some cone yarn that a friend of mine had given me a few years ago, but I hadn't done anything with the yarn yet.
