Shawling & Scarfing & Amanda

I gifted our friend Amanda with a shawl, that happened to be pretty near perfect for her gorgeous outfit last night. She and Oscar attended a company party and had a terrific time :-}
The shawl is a very easy pattern, I used some leftover black mohair and this site for instructions: ONE SKEIN SHAWL

(the plaque behind Amanda's head reads "Don't Piss Off The Fairies")

The scarf image is yet another riff on Kristi's Comfort Wrap, probably my all time favorite pattern.
(thanks for modeling Amanda :-}

I made a smaller scarf for a friend of mine, and fell so in love with the combination of yarns that I went on and made another for myself :-}

Your work and your friend are gorgeous! I love the pic of her with the scarf / shawl like mine with the snow falling.

Diana, your knitting needles are magic. Seriously.

I think of you every day during the depressing winter. (((hugs))) and good luck with the specialist!!!

Gorgeous, stunning work, as usual! Your friend is lucky, and as a bonus, she's going to be nice and toasty warm.

I made several felted wool hats and one capelet over the holidays, and didn't end up with any for myself, so I'm making me one now out of variegated orange and pink, for when I want to paint in a chilly spot. I hope to felt it today, and see how it fits (I don't use patterns), plus I picked up some soy and wool blend that feels fabulous, for a tam for Susie's boyfriend with no hair (large red beard, no hair). Hang in there, my friend, and keep that creativity flowing! B*B, Ysabeau
