Plain Jane Knits Up A Storm

A few musings about my needlecraft hobbies - knitting, crocheting, quilting, & cross-stitch along with my other love, genealogy. While growing up, I used to HATE the term "Plain Jane", but when it comes to knitting & crocheting, I've realized that I really *am* a Plain Jane in that I don't use fancy yarns.

No Photos Tonight

..... but I have been busy. The back yoke on Mom's vest is almost done, I just need to work short row shaping on the shoulders. I finished the green garter stitch shawl for the K4 project and I'm almost half way through making a black one. The meeting was today so I turned in the green one & picked up a skein of medium blue to make the next one after the black shawl. On Monday, I started a pair of fingerless gloves in Rainbow Dreams Trade Winds colorway. I finished the first one that evening and the second Tuesday evening while watching tv. I know that I have another pair - the ones in Rosy Forecast - around here somewhere, but I haven't been able to find them, so it was quicker to make another pair. Speaking of missing items, remember the missing size 9 circular I was searching for some months ago? I found it - it's in a partly completed sweater that I'd forgotten about that was tucked in with fabric in the quilting corner. Now I have two needles in that size. Ah, well.. It's a handy size to have and it's comforting to know that I wasn't crazy and I really did have the needle and didn't just dream it. Plan for this evening is to work on Mom's vest and maybe more on the black shawl. I need to start swatching for the Highland Triangle Shawl for the Folk Shawl KAL and I'd like to swatch the Frost Flowers lace from A Gathering of Lace to see if it will work for the black vest I want to make Mom. I think I need more hours in the day (or less time on the computer) and a couple extra sets of hands. {g}

You are not the only one needing to get started on the Highland Triangle Shawl...I suspect it will take me months to get it done as it is and you'll finish way ahead of me. I, too, wish there were more hours in the day!
