Wow! Can you believe it?!?! The shawl is done!Last night at small group I gave it to Jane. She was surprised that I made her something with it....but I think she liked it. Everybody liked the beads.
When it was all done, I really liked it myself, it's extremely soft and cozy.
So, then on Wednesday night, I whipped up this little baby bib for a couple of friends who just told us that they're expecting. We are soooooo very delighted and happy for them! This week I guessed that they're having a girl..so I went with hot pink :-D it's fun to guess!
Annnnd I actually casted on last weekend...but just this evening I was finishing the first row as I was waiting for hubby after work...so really..I started this today...and here's my progress. It's the DROPS 95-9 short sleeved top.
I'm doing my double decreases differently as described by Tracy Mine is a little different...I want to make it longer...and my gauge is finer, due to the yarn I'm using...and there are more changes...so...I'm sort of using the pattern as more of a guideline and using my gauge and measurements for sizing etc.
I'm still not sure if I should have gone down a needle size for this silk...but whatever...I'm enjoying the ride, and it will be a trial and error learning experience :-D
Oh ya, I have no idea why my pictures turned sideways...usually when I want them to do that I can't figure out how for the life of me to get them that way...today I want them normal...and they flip vertically! Go figure.
