I got to go see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with my daughter and grand daughter last night. It was great!!! The hat that Hermione is wearing in this picture is the pattern that I knit earlier last year for my daughter and grand daughter, you can see it on my Jan 7th entry. You can find the pattern for free on Raverly if you are a Ravelry member or the pattern creator’s blog here . If you are a knitter, crocheter, etc, Ravelry is a great place to check out, it is a free membership.
This is a little shawl I am working on. It is called Wisp . I found it on Knitty and was intrigued with this light and airy lace pattern. It looks complicated but is very easy. This one is for a friend as a surprise. She rarely reads my blog (she’s in her 20’s and has more important things to do :P) so I don’t live in fear that she will see this and spoil the surprise :). Pink is her favorite color so I am sure she will enjoy this in the milder fall and winter temperatures there in TN. I should be finished with it this week. Then I will just have to find some light weight buttons that will match the yarn. The yarn I’m knitting with is some very pretty heavy lace weight my mom bought in Korea when she was there and sent to me. I did the burn test and it appears to be an acrylic rather than natural wool fiber. I’m sure my friend will be happy that it won’t take special care to wash. 🙂 I will make another one with some fiber that I will spin for it. Something to wear to church for myself for a change. Right now, I’m thinking maybe some white alpaca I bought a month or two ago, but some other fiber might be calling to me by the time I get ready to spin for it. I’ll just have to see.
