Behind The Scenes

Someone said they were checking my blog and nothing was happening. You're right, the blog takes time and I've been busy. And, Ravelry doesn't help at all! Wanna see what I've been up to?
Sokomo This was a prize I won on YarnBeans blog. It's Somoko yarn from Handmaiden. Gorgeous! Thank you so much YarnBean! I love it.
Horcrux Socks Horcrux Pattern at I'm Knitting as Fast as I Can Yarn: Elann Peruvian Sierra Aran This is my second pair. They keep my feet nice and warm in the winter.

Pink Latte' I think the pattern for this was in last summers Interweave Knit. It was "something" Latte' so I call it Pink Latte'. It's too big and I'm not sure if it's made for this body. Might try it with a t-shirt underneath and see what happens. I started this last summer and just got around to doing the front bands, twisted cord and putting it all together.

Peek-A-Boo Peek-A-Boo Sweater by Knit One, Crochet Too, Yarn is Italian Ice. I made a 44" size and it's too big. Guess I've lost something with all this exercise I've been doing, or, I keep picking sizes too big. I also started this last summer while at my Mother's. Might make it again with different yarn. That Italian Ice is too expensive when I can't seem to get anything to fit.
Peek-a-Boo Sweater The backside.
Flower Basket ShawlFlower Basket Shawl, made from 3 skeins of di-Ve' yarn, Blues. It's not on their web site so maybe it's discontinued. It's a worsted weight yarn so was very fast. Beautiful colors. This is for my oldest daughters friends Mom who is battling an illness.
Just Made It! This is all the yarn I had left, with one stitch to go!
Oldest DGD Shrug This is for the oldest granddaughter. Just a simple shrug to keep her warm in school. Made from Lion Brand Cotton Ease
MS3 Put to Good Use The Baby Girl came home for a weekend and woke up freezing and hungry. She got an omelet and Mom's MS3 Stole, to borrow.
Olde Peddlers Shawl Crochet? On a knitting blog? Well, I do crochet, and this yarn from Fearless Fibers is wonderful and such a pretty color. It's a merino lace weight in the color called Miracle. I'm knitting the Olde Peddlers Shawl, which can be found on her Etsy shop.
Fearless Fibers Miracle and Beads The beads go on at the end, with the edging.
There's a few more pictures but it's bedtime so I'll try to get them on here sometime before the weeks over. I still have lots to show and lots to talk about. So, till next time..............
Happy Knitting!

Well, at least you haven't been neglecting your knitting! I can't imagine you'd need a 44" top....

Sheri, you may have been quiet blog-wise, but you have certainly been BUSY behind the scenes. These are great projects. I'm sorry some are too big. You just need to start thinking of yourself smaller, I guess. You do great work.
