Some "FO's" and "WIP's"

This week we received a goodie bag of beautiful yarns from our friend "Mothergoddyss" aka Amy and the Chicks picked out their favorites. Kathleen took a pretty pastel purple for some baby clothes. The rest of us have staked our claims but have to use some of our stash before we can commit to new yarns. Thank you Amy for thinking of us!
Barbara's expression says it all....yes she is STILL working on the green fuzzy blanket. It's almost putting her over the edge, but I'm sure she will finish it soon.
Elaine chose a pretty yarn for a gift shawl. She spent most of the afternoon hunting around for the missed YO and was aggravated that it couldn't be found. I know you'll fix it Elaine. could become a "design element".
I finished another orginal pattern from my daughter, aleigh on Ravelry. It's called the Ruffle Sleeve Baby Shrug. She is putting the finishing touches on the pattern AND our new grandbaby, who should be born in the next few weeks, so it might be a little while longer before the pattern goes up for sale.
Kathleen finished a sweet baby bonnet too.
Cate has to work fast on her baby blanket as the baby was born last week. Her Mom, Maureen, might have to help with the end knitting as Cate will be returning to dental school very soon.
And Maureen is catching up on the pink and white baby sweater which had to go into hibernation while she worked on the cute sailboat blanket.
So even though the whole Northeast is sweltering through a heatwave, we Chicks are finding small items to knit to save our sanity. I hope you are staying cool wherever you are and finding time to knit something fun. Keep those needles clicking!
