A Few of the Things I'm Working on

A Bunting and a sweater from Oat Couture
And a little cute cable sweater from Plymouth yarns
There are 2 of my own design that are half done and a couple baby blankets made of Homespun or Baby homespun
and I've gotten several patterns into my Estonian garden shawl.
Hopefully, I will be knitting more for Terri
Who is putting together a book of Antique Nordic mittens patterns. She recently had her house broken into and her laptop stolen. All that work...Pfft.. gone!!! But, in the process she learned some new ways of doing things. So, it hasn't been a totally bad thing. I'm loving some of her more recent knitting for this book. There is nothing quit like it... wishing her all luck. Not just because I've done some knitting for it too
Oh and for myself I ordered this pattern. I LOVE the back but I think the sleeves have gotta go! I'll think of something else.

Kellden Leonard Coles - March 24,2006

Yup I know, Babies babies babies!! This young Gentleman is the new son of Jami. Jami is Jylls twin sister.
Heres a picture of J&J together. Jami is the one without the hat.
Congratulations Jami!!
And yes, Jyll is the other one that is pregnant. Not to be out done by her sister.
Its confusing I know. Jami had a boy and Jyll(my daughter in law) is expecting a boy late this summer.
Whats even funnier is that Jami's oldest daughter ,Nikki, calls me "Grandma Aunt" ... which I love.
The amount of baby knitting I have planned is beyond HUGE..I'm so behind that I'm finishing things that I started for one or two babies back!!
No offense ladies.. but you can both stop now!! Please

Please send links to cool patterns.

Mystery Tour

I've been working on Nordic Mittens designed by Teri Shea
Its hush See her site to look at what we're doing.
Its been a challenge because the only fairisle I've done was on the knitting machine. But, I'm in love!

Almost finished with Judys Shawl Gold Lyon brand homespun. Its knee length so has taken awhile.
Started working on the Estonian lace shawl(picture below, somewhere)....finally... got the cast on and 3 rows done!! I'm on my way.
Today with luck...Jyll and Wyatt move into thier new house. I'm not sure which house is theirs but closing is SUPPOSED to be today. We shall see!!
