Busy as a Bee

Well, I finally got my Olive Twist Shawl blocked and when I wore it to school I got many compliments (which I agreed with--It is really pretty!)
I like wearing it more so that the pointy part is forward.  It looks great that way paired with a dressy denim jacket.  Thanks Ms. Micawber  for this excellent pattern!

I also finished knitting and blocking this Shawl Collared Cowl, my first "real" knitting project in that it included increases, decreases, button holes, and short rows.  What a lot to learn!  And it turned out pretty good.  Crochet experience certainly helped.

And then finally, I made this hat.  I loved the color work.  Thanks to Little Woolie for her tutorials on tapestry crochet, or I would've had a much harder time with this.  I liked making this so much, I am going to make another one with different colors.

I guess I've been pretty busy with the yarn this fall!  I don't know what has gotten in to me.  True, I have not baked much or even cooked dinner all that much, or done at home grading.  I haven't read too much either.  I have been rather addicted.  Ah well, it's a cycle I guess.

Now though, to prepare for the last week of school before holidays.  Always like keeping ponies in a stable!


  1. I love everything you have made. I have been wearing my gray Olive Twist Shawl just the way you do and I love it. It keeps my neck a bit warmer even when I just wear it with a white t-shirt and jeans. Sue is brilliant isn't she?
    Hgus to you,

  2. 'Ponies in a stable' or as I always think 'kittens in a basket' - the same seems to apply to students and staff! Well done on your woolly wonders x Jane

  3. Sigh, I do wish I could knit! And I can only crochet very simple things. I love looking at Sue's blog (Mr. Micaber's Recipe for Happiness) also. I love all the things that you have made here, they look really good on you and look professionally made!

  4. Hello! Sorry I have not been to visit you here for a while.....
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog and the link to the crazy cat lady....fantastic hats for cats! Xxx
