Cathy's latest

Today is an easy blog post. Cathy just stopped in with her latest finished projects. I wish we could have taken more pictures because each scarf/shawl can be worn a number of different ways. A lady was in buying sock yarn and her husband was sitting in the parking lot. We didn't want to keep her waiting. He might not bring her back another day :)
Pattern: Blue Bird (available on Ravelry)
Yarn: 2 skeins of Everlasting Sock from Dream in Color (or any sock yarn you choose-Kim used tosh merino light for this pattern)

Pattern: Diagonal Summer Scarf (free from Classic Elite)
Yarn: 4 balls (each a different colour) of Classic Elite Bella Lino

Pattern: Elder Tree Shawl (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: madelinetosh vintage in hosta blue

The shawl is seriously beautiful. And the colour is perfect for Cathy. There is some variation in the colour that doesn't show well here. She gives away a lot of her knitting but she promises that she is keeping this one.

Pattern: Auburn Wave (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: tosh merino light in courbet's green. When you look at a skein of this colour you don't think that there is this much colour variation. I like it.

Now I'm off to water the plants. I thought it was going to rain today but it's warm and sunny. It might rain tonight but it might not. Same for the next few days. It might be a little early to start killing the plants.

Now a bit of housework and then Big Brother. Who's going home tonight??
