Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I posted, as usual, but I wanted to let you know that I have been knitting! I have been working on a rectangular shawl, using the Feather and Fan stitch (Old Shale Lace.) I’m using alpaca yarn called “Peru”, by Blue Moon Fiber Arts. This is the yarn that Jeremy gave me for my birthday…last year? I was originally planning to make Shoalwater Shawl, but I saw another, rectangular shawl in the same stitch and decided that a rectangular one would work better for keeping my arms warm. So I just used a stitch found on the Internet and came up with my own pattern. Simple enough.

I am using Addi Turbos for the first time. They are quite nice. I won’t be buying a lot of them, as I can’t afford that, but it will be nice treat every once in a while. I told Jeremy I had bought a pair of Addi needles and he said something like, “Oh, the Addi Turbos? Nice!” He also knew about Yarn Harlot being in town before I did. How did this happen? It is cool, though. :)

I added the pattern for the Roxie Soap Bag. It has been test crocheted by my little sis, Christen, and passed. She even said nothing needed changing, so I guess I get an A. There is no picture at the moment, but I’m hoping to get one up eventually. It works up so fast though, if you want to know what it looks like, just make one.
