On the Needles

It's been a while since I last posted as we just got back from visitng the Midwest.  Lots of knitting happened on the plane and in the car:


I got a good start on another pair of Dragon Fly socks using Opal's Feen & Elfen.  If you've not tried this pattern, I'd recommend it! It's a fun one.


Several of us from my quilt group are knitting purple hats for the Don't Shake the Baby campaign during November and December, and I finished a couple of them.  You can find out more about it the program  here.


This is my go-to Prayer Shawl pattern called Easy Triangle Shawl. It was knit from Homespun for a choir friend who's just been diagnosed with breast cancer.  She told me last night that she loves it!

Now back to the needles.........

GOrgeous socks and shawl. I have a great interest in the PURPLE CRYING campaign.....I give their cd to every parent I meet In ISCU. More so that people understand that babies cry A LOT and its okay. Great hat project. You have been busy!

The shawl for your friend is beautiful. I bet she feels like you are giving her a hug every time she wears it.

Isn't Dragonfly great? I'm working on a pair right now.

What amazing projects you have worked on. Love the shawl and that is just the cutest hat for such a terrific cause. Tricky looking socks.

The i-cord at the top of the hat is cute. I'm knitting for Hurricane victims.
