Shawl Class


2011_01270003  This is the simple shawl that I’m going to be teaching a class on at our new LYS!!  I think that it’s going to go well!!  This yarn is wonderful….. cashmere and silk!!!!  Talk about softer than soft!!  I couldn’t believe how easy it was to work with!!  One skein of Superior by Filatura Di Crosa….. 70% Cashmere and 30% Silk!!!  I’ve never worked with anything so soft and easy to knit with!!1  328 yards of lucious in only 25gms!!!!!  It’s more of a shawlette than a real shawl, but it’s soooo much fun and sooooo easy!!!

I know I've been silent for a loooooong time. I'm trying to make my New Year a much better year for blogging!!!
I'm working on a PI type sweater I'm calling Dragon Scales..... I'm to the point of doing the front border now and will be adding the sleeves next week!!!!! I've also got a triangle shawl on the needles in 2 colors of sock yarn, a dark green and a dark blue. I'm using the Peacock Feathers patter because these colors are just too perfect for that!! They look like the colors you would find in a real peacock tail!!
Around the house the DH has a new job and is gone most of the time. He's driving long haul truck now and is all over the map!! If we get lucky he gets to come home once a month for 2 or 3 days!! It's hard on him, but it means loads of knitting time for me...... amazing how much more time you have on your hands if there's no one around but you and the dogs!!!
There's a new yarn store in San Angleo. Chandler's Cottage. I'm working on a triangle shawl class for them. I'm also meeting with a friend to knit on our TKGA Master's class once a week there. I'm also going to go to a "Fiber Arts" group today and see about knitting with them once in a while.
So much for my extremely boring life!!!!
