Mom's Shawl is finished!!! well... almost...

All I have left to do is sew in the ends and this shawl is finished! I started it for me, but my Mom took one look at it and claimed it. Had I continued to make it for me, I would still be working on it.

This shawl was knit using size 13, 36" circular needles. I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn, the color is Delft. The pattern is quite easy. I got it off of Lion Brand's website. It's called the Honest Warmth Shawl. I did cut the number of finished stitches on the needles down by 50 because my Mom is about small and I didn't want it being huge for her.

This picture is actually one from my cellphone. I was trying to take a shot to show my Mom and Emi crawled up onto the table and well, here you have it! It was too cute not to post.

Here it is finished.

Halloween Birthday Party invites

I just realized I did take a picture of the Halloween Birthday party Invites I made for my neighbors middle son.

I opened up the Silhouette Store and he told me he wanted the shape of a pumpkin. We looked through the designs and he picked this one out. Something quick and cute.

Even though there isn't a photo of it, he wanted a gate fold on the inside so his mom had a lot of room to write.

Scarf done!

I've been in a knitting mood. I just finished the scarf I had been working on the other day. I love it! I've started another one with the same pattern.

I am currently posting from the Blogger app because I wanted to see how it is. The brown scarf is the completed scarf. The ivory one with the shimmer is the new work-in-progress.

This one is the new work in progress.

This one is my completed scarf that I absolutely love  :)

Learning a new knitting stitch

I've been sick for about a week now (bleh!) and I haven't really felt like playing with paper. I did make my neighbors Halloween birthday party invites, but I didn't get a picture of them before I sent them off.

I've been playing around with this knitting stitch called the linen stitch. I learned it from a site that I often reference when I'm in the mood to add more to my knitting knowledge. The site is I taught myself to knit using her tutorial videos.

This is the piece I am working to get my hands use to the linen stitch.

I see place mats, coasters, and hot pads in my future.  :)

World Card Making Day!!

Woo hoo!! I hope I get to participate today! It's been one heck of a week! My dog Emi was attacked by the neighbors dog and early this morning, just before 1am, Tak had another seizure. I'm taking some time this morning to just let both of my girls rest. Once my homework is done today, Bammo! I'll be making cards!
