What I Know I MUST Be.....

"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be."
- Abraham H. Maslow

I, my friends, must be a knitter, as I can't get it out of m
y mind! Literally! We all met yesterday for a little 3 hour stitch n bitch session, and I couldn't drive home fast enough so that I could knit some more! I must learn to knit and drive...anyone master that yet?

In any case, thought I would post my latest project...the Conceptual Shawl, which is a free little pattern I picked up fr
om Abundant Yarn last week. Yes, last week. This shawl literally only took 3 days to complete...a very quick knit if you're looking for a gift to make and you need to complete it by this weekend! The only complaint I would have is that it's not large enough....the pattern called for two skeins of diVe Mohair Kiss Ombre, which is equal to about 200 yards. Looking back, I would have made it 3 skeins and would use more of a contrasting blend. I'm thinking about starting another one in a completely different type of yarn, just to see the differences. BTW, this is my daughter modeling the shawl for me...I couldn't get her to take her DQ shirt off, so not the most appealing combination, but you get the idea.

Also started a pair of JayWalkers in Marbles Socks that Rock, toe up, so will post those soon also...

More later...WG
