Nana's shawl is now blocked and dried and I had a chance to take some nicer photos in the sunlight. It is a feather and fan shawl worked in three sections in a bulky weight wool yarn. Nana loves her hand knitted shawls and this one will be her Christmas present. I'm going to work up another one in a lighter weight yarn for myself, I'm thinking of Knitting Fever Whispers. Hopefully it will eventually turn into a new pattern for me. Stay tuned!

A few mornings ago, I came out to the kitchen to make coffee and found the nearby mountains covered with thick clouds. They came down almost to the base of the foothills where my apartment is, so I had to take a couple of pictures.
Over the past week I have finished working on several projects that are now just waiting to be washed. I finished spinning my purple mix of crock pot dyed wool, finished knitting the prototype for a new pattern which will also be a Christmas present for Nana, and finished weaving a bronson lace scarf. I have been a busy bee! Sorry for the lousy photos, it is late and quite dark in my living room at the moment. When everything is washed and dried, I promise to take better photos.
