Long Term Project, Short Term Project, & TNNA

Rachel, Laura and Suzanne are going to be so proud of me when they see this.....

Pattern: Reversible Rib Shawl by Lilly Chin

Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze #603 (so old, it has been discontinued)

Needles: #10 & #8 12 inch Lantern Moon staights

Time to complete: THREE YEARS!!!

Comments: How shameful for me to leave this beautiful shawl languishing for that long. Normally, I'm a finish it kind of gal. I started this as a knit along with Rachel and Suzanne, two blog friends who completed theirs in a reasonable amount of time.

Next, my weekend project....

I did this while I was at TNNA this past weekend. Lovin' the crocheted edge (done thanks to the BFF Sheryl). I wish I was wearing it when I met Wenlan (of Twinkle fame)!

Pattern: Feather Scarf from Twinkle's Big City Knits

Yarn: Classic Elite Provence #2627

Needles: #17 straights & N crochet hook

Speaking of TNNA, Sheryl and I had a blast. Sheryl and I did not go looking for yarn due to the fact that we buy from our traveling reps. We did go bag crazy. The Amy Butler's are super fab! There is also a new style of Namaste and a new clear bag that is really cool. We picked up some super stylin' new patterns, and got to see previews of some upcoming books we've been looking forward to (French Girl Knits, Glam Knits, Twinkle's Town and Country Knits, Custom Knits). Not as much colorwork as the last show. We saw a lot of jackets/cardis.
