These are some of my recent projects. The sweater/shrug is a pattern recently posted on here from Annies Attic called Rococo Shawl Knit Pattern. I used Cascade 220 yarn in a multi color together with a gold on size 17 needles. It was easy to do and I love wearing it.

The Owl fingerless mitts I made for my best friend. I surprised her for her 50th birthday by flying to MN to see her and while we were out fabric/yarn shopping, we are both quilters, we saw this pattern and I told her I would make them for her. I also made the coffee cup cozies to match.

The Ridgewood Shawlette was a craftsy mystery KAL and I loved it. I have been knitting since I was about 14, now almost 50, but I have only knit basic dishclothes and scarfs just your basic knit and purl. A couple of years ago I decided I wanted to make socks so I did, got stuck on the heel so I sought help from my lys and am now on my 3rd pair. I took to dpn right away. I learned so much doing this shawlette. It was my first time doing cables, first time doing lace and first time adding on a knitted border. I tend to be a little OCD so I did start over about 8 times before I finally got it along with some frogging but now I am a better knitter because of it. Craftsy has a new mystery KAL starting in Feb. My yarn has arrived and I can't wait to learn something new. I really want to learn to read charts and make some of Dee's beautiful shawls. I have all the patterns it's just a matter of picking which one. They are all so pretty.

Lovely, especially love the shrug, good for this weather and keeping your back and shoulders cosy.

Very Nice ! I have also seen a pattern for an OWL sweater made the same way you made the finger-less mittens. The sweater pattern was on Raverly.
Your Shrug is the colors ! You are very talented.

Just ordered the shrug. Had a little trouble finding it on the website. I am excited to start.
