Exit 0

Mr. Canada Post brought in a box from Lynda this morning. Another beautiful shawl. I really wanted to knit this one but there is a small thing that I don't have a lot of right now - time. Plus there is that small problem of startitis in my life. I knew that if I sent it off to Lynda that it would come back quickly. :)

Pattern: Exit 0 by Laura Aylor (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: tosh merino light - 1 skein each of el greco, aura, ember
Three colors of fingering weight yarn are used to create a bent rectangular wrap full of stripes and angles. The slight bend makes it curve nicely around your shoulders. It’s not nearly as complicated to make as it looks - just one color at a time and some short rows and decreases here and there - instructions are given line-by-line and can simply be checked off as you go.
It was hard to show the real shape in the picture without laying the shawl out on the ground. I would have done it except for the snow :)
All you need to know is
-long tail cast on
-short rows
-picking up stitches

And then when I thought my post was done, Cathy send some awesome pictures to share. She's getting ready for Christmas.
She's been making wreaths. 

Pattern: Woolly Wreath and Garland from Churchmouse. We have copies in the store or you can purchase it on Ravelry...

This is the smaller size in 2 balls of Lamb's Pride Bulky.
This is the larger wreath in double strand Lamb's Pride Bulky. Cathy used 3 balls for this one.

As I'm writing the tosh ASAP in tart is staring at me. What an awesome colour for a wreath!

It's time to get back to my knitting. I have 6 rows to go on Clue #2. No more incidents with my knitting last night. The stitches are lining up properly and the world is good.
