My New Knit Top
I am so happy to have knit my second top. It's not difficult like most I see here on KP as you all impress me so much with your skills. I just made this in two pieces and seamed up the sides and at the shoulders. Someday I will find the time to learn shaping and all that good stuff.
What do you think of my newest pattern?
I am disgusted with myself - Happy Ending!
Finished shawl all blocked and I love it!! Thanks for all the encouragement and please excuse my photography.

what to do with knot in the yarn
What to do when you find a knot in the yarn. Do you continue knitting and hope it ends up in the wrong side or do you cut the yarn and join.

What's on your needles / hook this month ?
I've asked this question a couple of times and got so many great responses , lots of new ideas and lovely pictures of what fellow KPers are busy with , that I thought it worthwhile to ask again , plus it's always nice to chat with everyone
I've been playing with knit in lace and finally got round to seriously learning to crochet . I'm enjoying learning although I'm doing it left handed as I just couldn't get comfortable with the hook in my right hand
So here is some pictures of what I've been up to this month

Just Right Tween Shrug
Hi KP Friends,
This is the Just Right Tween Shrug I made for my daughter (12). It looks better on her than my "model." I used Caron Simply Soft yarn. I did have a difficult time keeping the mesh pattern and the wrap and turn going together at the front, so I gave up and changed it to garter stitch for the bottom border. I'm sure that I just was not concentrating. Do you think I got away with it? I liked the polka dot button to give a bit of interest.http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/just-right-tween-shrug
Thanks for looking.
