crafting update

I finished my first knitted garment for myself - my Harvest Cardigan! I am wearing it right now. It is very cozy. The arms came out too long, but I simply turned back the cuffs, and that is working nicely. So I don't think I will rip out some of the sleeve, as I first thought.

I finished two more shawls. My Wavedeck is going to be for myself, as it came out better than the first one I knitted. That one will go to the ministry. I also finished a Boneyard Shawl. It looks much better in person than it does in the pictures. I liked the colorway enough that I knitted a swatch with the scrap yarn to keep for myself, to remember it by.

I'm working on two mysteries. The first is a knitted mystery that I think will end up being a cowl. I love the pattern so far. That was the yarn I was untangling, by the way -- I did end up cutting the yarn in one place once I got to the knot, as there was no other way to untangle it. The other mystery is a crochet one that I think might be a container for plastic bags. I can't imagine what else it could be that is that skinny.

In December I plan on crocheting a Mini Moods of Change doily, and knitting a Celtic Myths shawl. I've also started on another Boneyard shawl with some more variegated yarn. I don't have enough of the variegated by itself, so I will alternate sections with Red Heart Super Saver in Aran.

The cardi looks great with the sleeves rolled back. Personally, I'd probably leave it that way unless the double layer gets annoying.

Was the Boneyard from yarn I gave you? That colorway is definitely awesome!

And I think the crochet mystery might be a lacy toe up sock. LOL Or a wine bottle cozy.
