shawl progress

The shawl is coming along quite nicely, if I do say so myself :-)  I was able to get some more yarn, and picked right up on it.  This is my lovely daughter modeling it for me.  It is going to eventually be for my niece, so it doesn't need to be huge, which is why I love knitting for littles!  You get the most adorable finished product, and it doesn't take nearly as long.  Oh, you mean I have been knitting this same shawl for a few weeks now and it isn't done, well, you know, I don't have huge dedicated blocks of time to knit.  But, I am pleased with it so far!  And it is a fun pattern.  I wish that I could get a good shot of the detail, but alas, this is what I have for a picture!

Book reading has slowed a bit this past week.  I just started the wonderful Whole Food Kitchen workshop by the lovely Heather Bruggeman of beauty that moves.  So I have been soaking up all the wonderful knowledge from Heather and the other participants in the course.  This is the second time I have taken this workshop, and fourth workshop I have taken from Heather, and I absolutely love it!

This time around, Heather has made each module into an e-book which consists of the main topic for the week, stories from her kitchen as well as some special guests, and recipes.  Oh, the recipes!  I think that that is probably my favorite part.  Not only does she have the recipe, but a picture to go with it.  And if you have been reading my Friday what i am eating posts, you will know that I love pictures of food, and really food in general.  

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else is up to this week!

  4. Great shawl so far! And I totally agree that being able to knit for little ones is the best. Would I have the patience to knit myself a cardigan just yet? No but my daughter is getting one because it's quicker :-P
