Your greatness is not what you have, it's what you give.

Back to work!

With the start of the new year we Chicks have some finished projects to show off. A few weeks ago Karin modeled the shawl I designed and now I have the details of it's construction.

The yarn is Karin's own Periwinkle Sheep Sock Yarn and the shawl took two skeins to complete.

The color is called Terracotta.

I designed the pattern and hope to write it up for sale after it is test knitted.

I had a bit of yarn left over from a previous project and it was just enough to make the hat portion but not the ties of a pattern called "Avery's Happy Cap" a pattern designed by a friend.

My daughter's old baby doll served as a proper model for the second version made using a baby alpaca yarn.

Kathleen brought lots of finished projects this week. A leaf lace sweater, a Pelerine, mittens and hats....

And this darling cardigan, which has a hood but it's hanging back where you can see it.

Elaine made a darling cabled baby hat for the inventory and it was good to see her again after a too long hiatus.

Sheila's Pelerine is showing good progress,

And Barbara's hands whipped through a pretty shawl that she's making using a colorful sock yarn.

Maureen is almost finished with her pink baby blanket.
And Beth finished another baby cardigan and is going on a hunt for the perfect buttons.
It felt good to get back to knitting with my Chicks and we look forward to a new year with lots of fun projects and get togethers.
