Shawl Pins Created

My many lace shawls are not so easy to wear, so I was in need of some pins to keep them on. My knitting friend Shafer came to our knitting group earlier this week with a pin she has just made, which was keeping her sweater fastened, so I felt inspired to try my hand at it too.

The curlicue pin is my favorite, and includes my own polymer clay beads. They are incredibly fast to make and so much fun.

Completed Norwegian Rose Cardigan

Hot off the needles, here it is. I found the perfect buttons at Joann Fabrics and I'm so very pleased with this sweater. The button band fabric is so very firm and even, with the exception of my buttonholes, which are not perfect. Next time.....

Almost Completed

I'm on the home stretch now, with a little bit of duplicate stitching to be done, and buttonhole stitching around the button holes. The actual buttons are not procured yet.

It turned out quite well, I think, but I wish I had knit it a little firmer. The yarn is not heavily twisted and is very soft, but I like it with more twist.
