Tons Done!

....I would first like to start with answering a question about the lace shawl that I knit over the winter. It is this pattern on Ravelry:


You need an account to see the pattern (I'm pretty sure) and you can't go wrong on Ravlery....I just love it!
I've been super busy between work and all of my fiber projects that I've neglected posting.....again! :) Issac (the Megado) is back up and running and I was able to finish the charcoal and black water spot scarves that were on it. I actually ended up finishing with a teal weft and thought that it turned out pretty fun:
I still have to twist the fringe on this one as well as the painted huck lace one I did a while back.
I got an order for another Waves and Water Shawl. Everyone eyeballs this at any show that I do. I originally made three one with black weft, purple weft, and green weft. They all sold except for the green so, I'm making another black, purple, and I'm thinking of a white to give it some 'zing' but, I may change my mind once I get to the third on this one:)
And finally here is what's on Kip (the Compact). I have my towels in my friend's gallery in Ulster Park and she's requested that I make more towels. Basket weave is a fun two treadle plain weave pattern. It's all just a matter of changing the colors......nice and easy and a nice stash reducer. I accidentally ordered 4 lbs of natural cotton a couple of years ago and I have about 2 lbs of this burnt orange and about another 2 lbs of hunter green. I'm planning on eventually weaving the same towels in green as well.
I have high hopes of taking pictures of all of the finished scarves on Monday! I can't wait because I really need to get some of the new items listed on Etsy. Keep your fingers crossed! :) Until next time!
