tHinGs thAt wErE, aRe Now AnD wiLL bE..
















I was thinking again.. ut oh... well this project came in to mind for some reason.. and for some reason I saved it for a very very long time in the state that it is in which is 95% finished. Every thing is there except the needles which I probably needed for a different project and never replaced . Weird right.. well I supposed I planned to finish it at some point.. but that never happened. I was knitting it for my daughter when she was younger.. a lot younger.. it's a child size medium.. my daughter is now 18 with a baby of her own. Omyw .. (oh my word).. well I'm thinking at this point... there is about 1 evening of knitting left.. so I would like to finally finish this project..why you ask.. why bother.. I guess it's the principle.. of finishing what I started.. for some reason was unable to get back to it and finish it. Part of stash cleaning and moving on to new projects I suppose... any way...

Here are my wips.. this is a crochet V stitch shrug. The yarn I'm using is Geneva Euroflax.. I'm doing my part in being green..using 100% linen.. a natural fiber. The yarn is very sting like and a little abrasive on my fingers.. after you wash it a few times it gets very drappy and soft.... but before washing..I can only work on it so long and then my finger gets irritated.. so...

















I continue on the border of my diamond shawl.. the first side and the first corner of the border are finished... no problems with abrasive yarn here.. this yarn is so soft, fluffy, silky.. like knitting with fibers made from clouds.. (^_^)

















Which brings me to a project I would like do...the Leaf Camisole in the summer issue of VK knit.1 magazine..I have to do a gauge swatch and make sure I can get the gauge with some yarn from my stash. The original was knit with lion brand cotton ease. The yarn I plan on using is called Coton D"Egypte .. it's an old phildar yarn that has been stuffed in the closet for years and years and years.. I've knitted a few things with this yarn recently and it's very soft and has a nice shine to it... and it's green.. 0.0
