Finished my Multnomah Shawl! This was our Spring Knit-A-Long project at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop. It was fun to knit, and really pretty easy. I just need to weave in a couple ends and then block it. I'm very happy with the yarn I used; Heritage and Heritage Paints from Cascade Yarns. It's soft and light and lovely! Watch for details on the Summer Knit-A-Long which will start Saturday, June 26!

I also finished Brad's Cosby Sweater, which is a huge accomplishment. I took a child's cardigan pattern that Brad liked, and turned it into a man-size pullover. There were several "hiccups" in the process; and the sweater was in "time-out" several times! I'm glad it's done. I'll get a pic of Brad wearing it soon. And I have enough yarn leftover to knit up a matching sweater for Riley! Yeah!

I've Only Just Begun

Here is the beginning of my Clementine Shawlette from Interweave Knits, Spring 2007. It's a super fun pattern to work on; and I love, love, love this yarn! I'm using Ultra Pima from Cascade Yarns. We have 13 deliciously shiny colorways in this 100% Pima Cotton. This sport weight yarn is machine wash cool and tumble dry easy is that?

Check out the many lovely colors in this yarn. If I don't have the color you want at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop, I would be very happy to special order it for you!
