A project for myself...

 Every once in awhile you make something for someone else and you love the way it turns out and you want one for yourself. THAT was the case here...I wanted a shawl for myself. I started this project LAST YEAR. Yup...life took over. So October I pulled out the project to finish it. I had to add one one more skein before it was done. Here is the finished project...

Homespun Yarn:
{{color: Harvest}}

Oh I love hoe the colors just cascade down. I just love these colors together. I'm not even sure if this color is still available. The shawls are made to order. My Etsy Shop is not open at the moment. The price list is on the side bar. You can contact me through my facebook fan page Knitted Gifts by Nicole .


Project #3 is done...

Here is the latest project I was working on...

Oh I really love this shade of purple. It has blue undertones. I like it so much that I will be selling this color of scarf to raise money for Relay for Life. I will post when that happens.
The color is: Purple Haze


Scarf for Mrs. S

Here is my latest project...

i made this scarf for my daughter's teacher for christmas. The yarn i used was Bernat Soft Boucle in color moss shades. her teacher said her favorite color was green. there is so many shades of green...there is light green, lime green, grass green & dark green. this green was very natural.


Baby Simeon's Baby Blanket...

My latest creation...

I finished knitting the baby blanket last week. I gave the blanket to my friend last thursday & Baby Simeon arrived Monday morning. Talk about cutting it close. lol

My next project is a shawl for myself in harvest colors. It should be done by next week. I will be taking orders for the shawl. Proceeds will go to my Relay for Life 2012 walk.
