Wandering Rose

I finally have my pattern down on paper and up on Ravelry. This was a project I had been working on for the last several months for Sheila of Wool2Dye4.  She has started The Honeysuckle Project to raise awareness for Breast Cancer and asked if we would like to participate, so of course how could we not.

She will be at the Sock Summit 20ll, where she is displaying the patterns and projects donated by all participants.  I understand the website will be up and running the first week of August, but you can check out any upcoming information on her Ravelry group.
So in honor of her efforts and continue with her generous work I will also be selling my pattern and donating all the proceeds to charity.
You can purchase it on Ravelry or here on my pattern page.

Finally some progress...

this weekend.  I finally feel that I've made some progress on projects and things that needed to get done.
First:  I finished up the baby hoodie that I'm trading for some yarn.
This is my own design, and I wanted to knit it again so I could familiarize myself with it again so I can get it published with some other sizes.  This one is in some Sirdar Snuggly I had in my stash, so I was happy to use some up. 
Next:  I made a little progress on my Taygete shawl by Romi, I'm finally getting the lace section close to the end

I'm also on the back of Julie's next project, I'll get some photos this week. Plus I managed to dye up some new stripey yarns for the shop.  We'll be having an update in the next couple of weeks.  I'd like to get a few more done this week, because I have 2 young visitors coming to stay for a week and I don't think I'm going to get very much done on the knitting front.
