Last PM I began another shawl (also from church yarn stash)...it is a dark green/brown variegated yarn from Lion Brand. Also, there is a soft boucle in a light moss green which will be used for contrast.

What a fun time at today's gathering! It's always nice to see what the other ladies have made and today's creations are all SO pretty...I wanted to make each one, but that's hardly possible......too many projects, not enough time!
While there, I worked on my newest project....a scrappy shawl with yarn I'd found in the donation drawers/boxes a while back. Will take a picture soon. There is a dark green with flecks of other colors, like peach, a bit of dusty burnt orange and yellow.. So, after the green strip (about 4" deep), I added another 4" or so deep section with the dusty burnt orange color, then a peach about 2" deep. I'll continue on in this manner. Oh, and each section is made of different patterns.....garter st., blackberry st. and seed st.
Have fun knitting and/or crocheting!

Yesterday, I finished knitting the tangerine colored scarf for my daughter. I made it about 50" long. Currently, I have it pinned to a "board" (actually two pieces of styrofoam covered with quilt batting) and gently sprayed with water. Hopefully, it will lie flat then. Today, I crocheted two pieces which will be sewn onto the scarf, then its on its way to my daughter. Will post a picture before I mail it.
