Some knitting

When I first moved to Macon, I found a yarn shop - Creative Yarns and I purchased yarn to make this shawl, well after two years, I finally finished it.

Here is a picture of the pattern and the shawl with a sheep pin that I had found when on a trip to Vancouver - I love sheep!! so I just had to have this pin!!
Below is a photo of the back, please do not mind the loose yarn, I am still weaving in the ends.

Another photo of the front.
Below is a scarf that I am knitting from the Debbie Bliss summer issue.
I am using a cotton yarn for this - I really like the looks of this pattern - the wavy edge.
A better look at the magazine, I just purchased the Fall issue, but haven't had a chance to look through it yet to see what I might want to work on from it.
I am also working on a pair of socks and fingerless gloves.

I did finish stitching Cape Cod Girls and a couple of exchanges, will get some photos posted this week.

I think fall is coming to middle Georgia - it was in the 60's this morning and it never hit 80 degrees, but then the sun never did come out!!!

Happy stitching --- Roberta

Gorgeous knitting Roberta! The shawl and scarf will be so nice during the winter season. Can't wait to see your fingerless mittens.

Pretty shawl! I have a fetish for shawls and scarves. I have three boxes full of them. Some women take forever picking out shoes and I take forever picking out just the right scarf...lol. It is autumn here in Holland now and I am really enjoying it. Not to mention the fact that I can wear my scarves again. :-)

Hugs ~

Oh, love the shawl and you will, no doubt, be able to use it up there. Sheep pin - mmmmmm, gorgeous, and perfect for the shawl. I'm going to have to look at that DB issue again, another friend of mine is doing the scarf on the cover too and I love it. I just started pouring thru the new DB issue - several things piqued my interest. Glad to hear that you've got a nice yarn shop up there. Great for when you want to take a break from cross-stitch!

You shawl is beautiful and so is the sheep pin.

Good start on your DB shawl. I saw Pattie's on Tuesday, it is looking great also.
