I have finished several projects though. Before we left, I completed this shawl and am pleased with the way it turned out. It's a fun, free pattern, and I love the Madelinetosh yarn color "Yoko".
While we were away, we visited a friend who just became a great-grandma. I made some booties for the baby girl and then decided to try a new bonnet pattern. I used some self striping fingering yarn and was intrigued with how the yarn patterned on the back. However, next time I'd omit the lace part as it's not very visible with this kind of yarn.
This bootie pattern has become my "go to" for a quick and fun baby gift. It's always a bit dicey though with one ball of angora yarn; lately I've begun to wonder whether it's really the amount listed on the ball band.
My sweet grand daughter requested a sparkly sweater, and here she is wearing the result. It's an interesting knitting pattern that includes a bit of crochet. I'd like to try it again with the recommended yarn.
That's enough for this post since it's almost dinner time. More to share soon. Have a Happy Halloween!
