Market Bag

Just finished the blue market bag yesterday afternoon at knit group, it only takes about a day to make one. I made the other one a couple weeks ago and Stepmother decided she wanted a blue and yellow one,  so got that one done in between these two.  It's a Plymouth Yarns pattern and Plymouth Yarns Fantasy Naturale Cotton Yarn.

Marla's sweater

Hot off the needles, it's a different way of doing a shawl collar than I've ever done before, usually   I just pick up and knit it right on the sweater, but this patter called for knitting it separately and then sewing it on, I think I like the pick up and knit method best. 

The pattern is Hand Knit Yarns by Naturally  Fashion Collection  FC 31, it's a New Zealand pattern that I picked up at Brown Sheep Wool, the yarn is Brown Sheep Wool Handpaints.

The Kaya Shrug

Just off the needles and ends all woven in. 
I love this pattern, it was very easy and fast to do, going to start another in a couple weeks. 
Will make a great Christmas gift. 
The pattern is from Ravelry, hope some of you give it a try.  Will be doing a workshop on it on the website under workshops.  Come join in, it'll be fun.
