Let's shake things up a bit!

The afternoon Chicks are usually featured first in the blog each week so this week I'm changing it up a bit.

Our evening session started with Beth showing us her finished "Flirtatious" shawl (the pattern can be purchased on that she knitted using "Wink" yarn from Karin's etsy shop. The color is a beautiful lilac or lavender, not sure what it's really called. Nice job, Beth.
Then we have a new member of the Chicks, Carole. She's a friend of mine from another group which meets at our local Panera to knit once a month. She is working on a pair of mittens. Welcome Carole! I'm so glad you could join us!
Maureen is showing progress on her Baby Sophisticate sweater.
And Karin is making a shawl called "198 Yards of Heaven" a free pattern on
Now for the afternoon ladies. Barbara made this colorful hat using Noro yarn. Her pattern came from this book.
She is currently making a pair of fingerless mitts to go with it. Liz is making another pair of socks after the success of her first pair.
Kathleen made a lovely stole for her granddaughter-in-law using a cozy, warm brown yarn.
The edging is crocheted on after the stole has been knitted.
It's a pretty simple pattern stitch which makes a lovely design.
Kathleen made another one to go into our inventory for the homeless female veterans.
I've been working on a bunch of projects all at once, trying to get Christmas gifts knitted in between donation projects. I can't really show you any yet because I don't want to spoil the surprise. But I will when the gifts are opened during the holidays.
Are you doing any holiday knitting?
