Wednesday :Nothing But Knitting Post

 Sue W-H was kind enough to send me an image of her Comment Cap knitted up.  Darling, Sue!
 I ran into my friend Diane at 3 Bags Full today.  She is knitting this fabulous Furrows Shawl.  It is gorgeous. I think she said you cast on a million stitches.  Isn't it gorgeous?????
 I picked this Berrocco yarn in a very unusual for me orange color way.  I am knitting up a simple cowl I found on Ravelry in my favorites.  It is a simple 2x2 rib folded and sewn into a comfy cowl.  I thought it would look great with a brown, white, or yellow toned shirt/top in the fall.
Somehow I have 5 projects going at once.  This is, for me, unheard of.  My prediction is that I will finish the 2x2 cowl first even though it is the last cast on......

Whats on your needles??

Beautiful peachy color! Your cowl will be beautiful. I am working on a Life Is Good shawl, loving it and enjoying the easy, relaxing knitting. Thanks for the idea!

Love that color and I'm not normally an orange person. Now to check out that shawl pattern you keep making......I need one I can actually finish!

LOVE your colors - will be perfect for that fallish look!

I have several projects going at once because my hubby and I are about to hit the road for a 600 mile trip to visit my MIL. Two different socks, a Wingspan shawl and Cat Bordhi's Rose cat bed. Might cast on one more thing before we leave next week.

Love it all. Sue's hat is darling, and I don't mind casting on a billion stitches because it generally means I won't have to bind off as many. Will have to explore that pattern.

LOVE that yarn. That 40th bday joke two friends played on me backfired and I now am quite drawn to some shades of orange. Go figure!

lovely yarn and a beautiful shawl. On my needles: a pair of socks mostly done, another version of my shawl - barely started, a shawl I'm knitting along with my daughter and friend, and the modern quilt wrap which is more than halfway done and I'm so over. g

That shawl looks like it would have a lot of stitches, but it's very beautiful.

Beautiful yarn! The Furrows shawl is nice -- very graceful.
