This is a slow week here at Knitatation. I finished up yet another
ruffle scarf (brainless project) and have a few repeats done of the
current lacey sock.

I really enjoyed knitting both.

Ruth has finished up a new pair of socks, aren't they lovely!!

Have a nice week!

Shawl Stuff, Part 3 (The final chapter)

Yippee! Ruth and I finished up our shawls this weekend!

Both are blocking.

Here's mine:

Pattern: Summer Mystery Shawl by Wendy Knits
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock Yarn
Used probably 3/4 skein.

Her yarn is from pretty!

(See Ruth's little Lucy inspecting the new shawl)

I also finished up the Scalene scarf.

Yarn: Jarrod Flood Shelter yarn.
There were 3 sizes to choose from, and because I had the
shelter to use up, I chose the worsted version. It turned out
ok. Nice but ok. I can't wait to try it sometime using sock or
dk weight yarn.

Remember this sock I finished a long time next project
will be the 2nd sock.

I also started another ruffly scarf for a brainless project.

Check out Joey's new ride:

Mickey got a new toy:

We have the pool open, now just need the water to warm
up a little. Have a nice week dear blog readers!

Shawl Stuff, Part 2

Martha finished her shawl, congrats, Martha. After a few shaky
attempts, she found a wonderful yarn and wizzed right thru this

Ruth is away this weekend, but I believe she is somewhere
on Chart 3.

This is mine:
I am on Chart 3, just starting the 2nd time around.

Reminder this is the Summer Mystery Shawl by
Wendy Knits.

I also worked a little on the Scalene scarf this week.
(my brainless knitting).

I will have more details once this is done and blocked.
Nice pattern. It is definitely a yarn sucker!

Joe went fishing today and caught some really nice perch
in Lake Erie.

Mickey is really p*ssed he cannot go outside....I know I would
never find him once he was free to chase birds....

Happy Knitting....................

Shawl Stuff

Ruth has made progress on her shawl....

Martha and I have both ripped back to the beginning and have
started over. I could just copy the same picture I posted the last
time and it would look the same. LOL

I'm also working the Scalene scarf in between shawl stuff.

After a one-year hyatis, Joe has started working on the kitchen again.
He did a little trim and painting in the last week. It looks so good,
I can't wait for it to be done.

I hope to have more to show next week.....
