My pal Gabrielle from knitting group designed a lovely shawl called Monongahela and put out a call for test knitters. I happily signed up and I’m well on my way to a new shawl.
Try to ignore those green and blue pieces of yarn- they’re my lifelines. Better safe than sorry. I’m about ready to start Laceband Two. So far so good!
The yarn is leftover from a design I did last summer for Shannon Okey’s forthcoming series of books “Fresh Designs”. There will be 10? books in all, each focusing on different types of projects: sweaters, hats, mittens, baby, toys, home, etc. My design will be featured in the home book. Shannon put together a preview slideshow of some designs from the first few books. And now I want to knit the cabled zipper cardigan by Rock & Purl for Markus. Ahem, or maybe for me.
