Meet my mom and see what we are knitting on! I’m working on a 1930′s shawl, recreated by looking at a shawl my Granny made for my Aunt Rea (my Maw Maw’s oldest sister). The yarn is Knit Picks Palette. My mom is working on a #50 ruffled shawl by Mac&Me out of Hill Country Weaver’s Peruvian wool. Finished objects – I have a pair of Turkish Bed Socks complete and mom has a shawlette, called Cassis shawlette, completed. Vintage pamphlet insert from a Feb. 1964 issue of Women’s Day magazine, which belonged to my Maw Maw.
WIP – Turkish Bedsocks by Churchmouse Classics, knit in Koigu.
Finished object – Quite Continental by Book Knits, knit in Knit Picks Glimmer Stroll
Vintage book show-and-tell – Vol. 98, New Hand Knits by Fleisher, bear Brand, Botany – 1967,
Yes! Spring is here and I plan to work in the garden today… but before I do, here is my latest episode!

My mom and I took a day trip to Austin last weekend. Hear about our trip and about Dottie’s adventure to the vet. Also see my current WIP (Hexipuffs by TinyOwlKnits and Turkish Bedsocks by Churchmouse) and more!
Hi Guys! Thanks for watching! Today I will show you my WIP, which includes a plain, tube scarf for my hubby and a Love Heart Blanket. My finished items are 4 hexipuffs, and Mimi’s Mink Stole (Old Oak Ranch Stole). I also give away a prize and show you an old Jack Frost knitting magazine.
Boy, I’ve been knitting every night this week! And I’ve gotten a lot done. I finished a gift for my sister, as well as my Sockhead Hat. I’m still working on my Old Oak Ranch Classic Infinity Cowl, but I’m about 75% done. Yay! What’s next you ask? Will, that would be something for my husband, his “NYC scarf” (that’s what he calls it because we bought the yarn in NYC over Thanksgiving weekend). I’m also about to cat on a shawl by BooKnits called Quite Continental. It will be knit out of Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer in black and it will have clear glass beads with silver linings. I can’t wait.
