I'm baaaaack! Sort of....

I've been out of commision since July 17 with a back injury which meant that I couldn't knit for all those weeks! It has been a long, slow recovery and I'm still not allowed to get back into my usual routine so you won't see much finished knitting from me. But my amazing Chicks have been hard at work in my absence! Take a look.

Liz used a very soft cotton yarn to make this lovely lace scarf. The blush color is so pretty. It will make an attractive addition to someone's wardrobe.
 Kathleen and Liz admired Liz's handiwork on this man's striped scarf.
 Kathleen used a soft wool for this man's vest.
 And her favorite pattern for a child's sweater got a good workout.
 Look at those cute little turtle buttons!
 Here is Liz's man's scarf and a pair of adult booties.
 The burgundy yarn is Cascade 220 and the charcoal stripe is Berroco Jasper.
 Kathleen was very busy over these last six weeks!
 Before I hurt my back I was very close to finishing my Fagus Shawl. I had only a few more rows to go. I was able to finish it this week, a little bit at a time. One row a day. Now it's done!
 Maureen finished her scarf. The pattern is reversible so it looks great on both sides.
 Now she is working on a Baby Sophisticate jacket for a friend's newborn.
 Beth used a Malabrigo merino yarn for her Amanda hat. The yarn shows off the colors of the yarn beautifully!
 Here are Beth's other finished items. That's the baby version of the Amanda hat in the middle. The blue scarf is from a class she took to learn how to crochet. Great job Beth!
I had to obtain this photo surreptitiously while Dorah wasn't looking. LOL! She is almost finished. Scarves seem to take forever!
I'm taking baby steps back to recovery so I'm hoping to be back to my normal knitting schedule soon. In the meantime, keep your needles clicking!
