On The Needles - December 27, 2013

This is the last 'On the Needles' for 2013.  You are probably getting tired of seeing the same project on my needles.  I know I am.  I was hoping to finish my 3S shawl by the end of the year, but it doesn't look like that will happen.  But there was a little progress made on it this week-- it now measures 6.25 inches from neck edge to the lower point, which is about a third finished.  Maybe by the end of January, 2014 it will be ready to wear.

I also spent some time on gifts and finished a couple more face cloths.  The lighter ones are used as "face cloths" and the darker ones dish cloths.  These face cloths and a bar of homemade soaps are little thank you gifts for friends.

  1. I love the idea of giving a hand knitted face cloth and a homemade bar of soap! The colors in your 3S scarf are so pretty. You'll get to the end. :)

  2. You've made progress. The shaw is going to be stunning when you do get it done.

  3. The yarn in your 3S is just gorgeous!

    1. Thanks Denise. It's an Italian wool - label says "Superwash ON line Supersocke 100." I picked it because of the color, not because I knew anything about yarns. I'm learning more though from listening to you and Judy.

  4. Dar, your 3S is coming along beautifully! I love all the excitement going on with that yarn - just yummy!!!!


Thanks for taking time to stop by and visit. It makes my day to get mail - either online or in the old fashion mailbox! Some habits you never outgrow.
