Catching Up!

Some of the charity knitting is starting to come in - I'm so excited and so happy! Thanks to Michelle (mitts & socks) and Monika (hats) for these cute cute cute things! Meghan and I will be going to Yellow Brick House to deliver what I have before Christmas and then take the rest after.

I finished a sock on the weekend - it's one of a pair for my Aunt made from My Personal Stash - Socks That Rock Sock Candy - it's a cotton/elite blend! Nice! Twisted rib cuff, two cables down the front, Eye of Partridge heel - right out of my own little head! Ha!

Many asked for the pattern for Grandma's Koigu Shawl - here's the specifics.

Yarn: Koigu Kersti 4 skeins (cuz she wants it long)
Stitches Cast On: 36 (any multiple of 10 stitches plus 6 will work)
Row 1 & 2: Knit
Row 3: (RS) K6,*YO, K1 (YO x2), K1, (YO x3), K1 (YO x2), K1, YO, K6 : rep from * to end.
Row 4: Knit, dropping all YO's
Row 5 & 6: Knit
Row 7: K1, *YO, K1, (YO x2), K1, (YO x3), K1, (YO x2), K1, YO, K6: rep from * to end, K1 (instead of K6)
Row 8: Knit, dropping all YO's.
Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length.

This could be made wider, narrower, any size needles - for myself I picture VvS 2 ply Merino used in a wider shawl! Yummy!

Oh yes, and just so no one is ever bored with my shop - I've just arranged to two new yarns - exciting! I'm pretty sure they won't be here until the New Year - but I do have one other that should arrive this week. Stay tuned!

Thank you so much for posting that pattern. I have to make one.

Had hoped to get in on the charity knitting, but guess I missed it. Let me know if there's another opportunity.
