Almost Finished - Arianne

I'm very proud of this sweater even though the 3/4 length sleeves ending up being full length (and how the heck am I going to block the sleeves when they are already the correct length??) . I have to pick out buttons, block the sweater and it will be delivered to my oldest daughter (still my favorite blonde daughter ;).

My First Wool Peddler's Shawl

This is my first wool peddler's shawl knitted with my own handspun. I'm especially pleased that you can't see the mistake in this photo :) I dropped a stitch in the lace portion and didn't catch it until after it was blocked. I went in with a small piece of yarn and basically did a duplicate stitch. This shawl took approximately 2 weeks.
