Monday, Monday!

Back to work! And a busy day...But I did get to work on my Diamond Fantasy Shawl (can I just say again what a cool knit this is? So satisfying, such a fun pattern, and the yarn is a dream!)

Kat? You wondered how I avoided having the laceweight cut into my skin as I held it wrapped around my fingers? Well...I guess I knit pretty loosely, because I never have any yarn wrapped all that tightly around my fingers, regardless of the weight of the yarn - I'm a "thrower" not a "picker" so I suppose maybe that has something to do with it?

(btw...I ordered another Sivia Harding design today, and the yarn (and beads!) to make it - I'll share when they arrive, but I'm soooooo excited!)

Here are a couple of bags I made this weekend - the first is a Knitnana:

And I altered the 6 "Mera-style" pockets in this one - I made one of them into 4 pen/pencil/needle sleeves as requested by the new owner...

Then this one, I know you've seen in some variation or other over the years:

Yes, that's my favorite (okay, SECOND favorite) Siamese kitty - Michelle Meow - in the Mera size bag. This one is wending it's way to the Virginia Center of Siamese Rescue for a fundraiser this weekend. It's one of my favorite causes, and so I was delighted that Siri accepted my donation of this bag...

I've got some needle cases in process and I'll show them later in the week but I hope that, like me, your week began well, and hope it continues to sail along smoothly!

Beautiful bags - as usual! My Grand Mera & Oressa are getting a lot of use and the leaping kitties fabric still makes me grin every time I look at it.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
