This week has been super busy and there hasn’t been a lot of knitting going on, but I did want to film to show you the little bit that I have knitted. I’m still working on yarn bombing my sewing bench, my husband’s vanilla socks and the shawl for my sister. There are no finished objects this week, but I do give out a prize. Good luck on the prize and thanks for watching!
WIP – Knitted Patchwork Recipe – to yarn bomb my sewing bench. A pair of vanilla socks for hubby. And, “Shawls for Special Ladies” – a total of 5 shawls copied from an old shawl knit by my Granny, for her oldest daughter (my Aunt Rheta).
No FOs this week.
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.
