It was a delight to meet Beth Casey of Lorna's Laces this past weekend. And guess what....she dyes all of that yarn herself! She spent most of Saturday at Ewe Knit Kits & Yarn grand opening. She brought along some lovely shawls, a sweater set and shrug. Bobbie will be getting the patterns.

I finished several scarves that I don't think I mentioned here.

A cute triangle using "Zigane" by Skacel Yarns. I used size 17 needles, cast on 3 stitches, increased on each row until I hit 25, then increased on each row at each end until I ran out of yarn. I used 3 skeins. It's a generous size.

My other "creation" was with a Lorna's Lace Sport weight yarn in Rainbow #601 (at the bottom of the page). A slim semi-lacy thing. YO's and K2Tog across. Nothing fancy. I'm looking for a fun trim for the two edges still.

Now I'm working on a store sample of FiberTrends Party Purses using Noro Kureyon #102 with red and yellow Peacock. The purse took no time to knit (the small one) and I'm working on the i-cord now. In future, I think I'll do a provisional cast on and finagle a 3 needle bind off to seam the bottom. Whip stitching ....not my favorite thing to do.
