Wednesday 17th September 08

It has been a while since my last post and I don't know how much longer I will keep it going. I guess I can just blog once in a while which would be better then not at all. The reason being as you all know is because Kim is ill and I get very busy. I was going to give it up but Kim thinks I should keep blogging.

Here are some books that I've added to my knitting library. I've decided to collect Lace knitting books because of my love for lace knitting.

Above is the Lacy Prairie Shawl finished. I didn't buy enough yarn to make the large shawl so it's more like a shoulder shawl but I am still happy with it. This yarn is a dream to knit with and to wear it's soft and silky, lite and warm to wear. I will definitely use it again.

My Tweedy Waistcoat is progressing nicely I have finished the back tonight and started the left front.
The next item I am going to knit is Botticelli by Marie Wallin from Rowan Mag 44. I love Roses and I really like this cardigan not just because of the roses - I love everything about it. A lot of Marie Wallin's designs appeal to me.
That's it for today. It's getting late and I need to get some sleep.

The patterns are beautiful, especially the Botticelli. I do hope you'll keep blogging when you find the time and desire ... my thought are with you.

I love the that cardigan and the lace book looks like it will be a wonderful addition to the lace book collection.

Thanks again for the lovely package

Take care, my thoughts and prayers are with you daily.

Botticelli was my favorite from that Rowan. I can't wait to see the finished sweater.
