Oh my gosh, the shawl is beautiful! I love that pattern and have been wanting to knit it. You've inspired me to get started.

Beautiful work!

:psst: The shawl pic is a little too large so next time resize to 800 pixels on widest side. ;)

thank goodness for photobucket, Jan. Size adjustment was a snap! should fit the requirements now. Thanks for allowing me to correct my mistake.

Great work ... looks like you've been busy! The shawl pattern you used is gorgeous, and I love the bright color you chose for it as well!

I love the shawl. :heart: The red is really stunning. A nice sweater for DH, they love the simple styles and... gray. You have a lot of things going. I'd never get anything finished if I tried to knit so many things at once.

The shawl is lovely!

I can't quite tell if hubby's sweater has a texture in it. :??
Got a close up. :)

What yarn did use use on your bag? I'm really lovin' that!

OMG - prepare to be stunned! the yarn in the bags is WalMart $6 a CONE plain ol' peaches & cream undyed. BASIC & BORING!

I started hubby's sweater with TONS of texture - cables & seed stitch, etc, very Aran style, but I got so bogged down in all the cabling that it was frustrating! Frogged the whole thing and started over - no texture whatsoever - just stockinette & rib at the collar/cuffs/waist. whipped it out in a week. :D

Whenever knitting is no longer fun - you're doing it wrong.... lesson learned!
