Lurking and thought I'd finally post


I've been knitting for two years and finally thought I'd make a post. Around March someone posted the thought that they would begin knitting some Christmas presents for family and friends and would complete one project a month. Sounded like a good idea and so I joined a local knitting circle that meets on Thursday nights for 3 hours and I'd do the same. Here is a picture of the projects I've completed. Last item is the pair of purple socks that are still on needle but will be finished for Christmas. Its been a blast. The sweater is an Elizabeth Zimmermann BSJ adult size and the lace is the pattern Isbel by Ysolda Teague. The next item to go one the needles is Elizabeth Freeman's Aeolian Shawl in a lavender mohair.

This is a great forum and I've enjoyed it very much.

They look great! I specially love the verigated gren scarf. What yarn did you use for that? Was the pattern your own? really love it.
