Tiny Pirate fan

Look at this little cutie! Doesn’t she look like she is ready for the football game tonight? This is the Little Coffee Bean sweater that I knit when she was born last December to my friend at work. She was able to wear it a little bit in the spring before it got warm and it still looks good on her this fall.

Good day for a shawl

It was a cool morning so I decided to wear my Orenburg shawl. I finished it in April but never took a photograph. The pattern came from piecework magazine 2011 and it was called a snowflake scarf. I wanted to knit a stole so I made the scarf pattern 3 repeats wide. It is one of my favorite knitting projects I’ve ever made.

Here is my finished Wingspan shawl after blocking. It is going to be so cool this week I might get to wear it!

Blocking

Love my new blocking wires. The gold Wingspan shawl has been finished for months but never blocked. The snowflake lace scarf is going to be grafted into an infinity scarf but I wanted to block it first. I want to wash and block all my scarves and shawls so they are ready for fall wearing.
