My prayer shawl is done! I loved the Plymouth Encore; it was a joy to work with! I fringed the shawl with beautiful ribbon yarn and more Encore.

This scarf was made in Showstopper yarn which is three different yarns: Paris Nights (which is a thin ribbon), Eyelash (which is pale green and copper) and pale green Mohair.
I realize this was not on my list of things to do but I saw it on Tuesday at my LYS and fell in love with it. This scarf took maybe two hours to make on size 15 needles and I enjoyed every minute of it.
It is beautiful, which the picture does not show. It shimmers and glimmers and it oh so soft.
A nice diversion.... :)

One of the results of this organization is that all my yarn and projects were bagged and tagged and now I really know what I have. The below posts show my progress is various projects.
Also, I have been taking a sock class with Sallee and I am really enjoying it! Thanks Sallee for giving me the incentive to try socks!
Here is my first attempt at a sock. I thought it would be hard but it really wasn't. The short rows were fun and I really enjoy the colors as they pattern. But...these tiny needles are crazy at times I think I am creating a four-legged monster! :)
This is done in Noro and the picture does not do it justice. I love this pattern and this yarn! This is my lunchtime project and I can usually get a whole set of pattern done in 20 minutes. The thing with Noro is that the dye lots are totally different so what is the chance that the yarn my Mom gave me for my birthday and the yarn I picked up two months ago would be the same...but they were! :)
This is the baby blanket from he-double hockey sticks! I have tinked it back more times then I have knitted forward! But is is lovely and the pattern is really striking. I try to only knit on it when the house is quiet and I can count the rows. I am on the last color and hope to finish it soon!
This is the only project I am crocheting right now. The really brown yarn is so fuzzy that my cat raised his hackles and thought it was another feline! When this is done it will fit a twin bed; I am 3/4 done!
I really need to move this to circs...but this is a lovely ribbon shawl that is really actually very big. It is made with two kinds of ribbon and two other yarns. I haven't had any trouble with the ribbons and this is an enjoyable project.
Okay, so it is only an itty bitty triangle at this point but I'm in love with the Plymouth Encore. I'm going to make the fringe in the ribbon yarn. I was thinking green for healing and the colors are really brighter then the photo shows.
