FO: WendyKnits Summer Mystery Shawl 2013


Pattern: Summer Mystery Shawl 2013 KAL by Wendy Knits

Yarn: 1 skein of Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in gold

Needle: US 7 circular

Started: July 31, 2013

Finished: September 11, 2013

Notes: Didn't change a thing. It was a perfect knit. There are three sizes available and I went for the largest one. With over a 1000 yds, I knew I wanted to use as much as I could. I still have plenty of leftovers!! The final blocked size was 80 inches wide and 40 inches in height.


These shots where taken at the Riverwalk in downtown Naperville. I'm so in love with this location. It is on the short list for future photo shoots.

A Little Something...

That needs to be finished is the Wendy Knits Summer Mystery Knit-along... ready for blocking...

Lace is off the needles, now for a bath and blocking!

And then BAM! with a 80 inch width and a 40 inch height... it looks like I'll need to grab another set of blocking boards...

Looks like I need more blocking boards.

FO: Jacob's Woobie Monkey

It's been a long time coming, but I've finally put a face on the lingering project for an online sweetheart who had an adorable baby boy named Jacob.


I personalize the blanket with the initial J using a stem stitch embroidery technique. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I'm shipping this in the mail in hopes that Jacob adores it as much as I do.

The only downside to making something so cute...getting asked by everyone if I can make them one too! I love each and everyone of you out there, but there is no way that will happen.

Want to make one? Sure, go here to buy the pattern for the monkey!
