nadja dropped of the shawl since she was in town near where i work! it's wonderful already - nadja i love your yarn. i have about have of my section done already , but i have other projects i can't neglect, so i'll finish it tomorrow. i'm using simply soft in soft pink.
threesmom, are you still up for this one? and if so, are you coming towards the city soon? i might have to hear to deptford this monday too.
oh, and is there a journal for this one?

I love that yarn too. Drat I meant to get a journal and I just plain forgot. There was also a dish towel that knitnut included for some reason that I forgot to pass on.

Stagebear, feel free to add a small journal if you want. You can just leave the first two pages blank for knitknut and Nadja, and they can add their comments later. :thumbsup:
This shawl is moving fast! Must be because pink is a popular color. :)

i'll pick up a journal tomorrow while i'm running errands.
shandeh, just a heads up that we may only need 5 knitters on this one. it looks like the first sections are bigger than they were on the pretty purples. i will really be able to compare once i take a pic when my section is done.

Sunshine is ready to move along to the next knitter. :knitting:

Sorry---the camera is on a business trip with my husband so there are no pictures to post!:sad:

I used Berroco "Love It". It is a cotton and acrylic yarn in sunny shades.

Thanks Genny! :hug: The Sunshine Shawl will be coming to you soon, when MaryB finishes her part. She's only had it for 2 days.


I'm next, I'll PM you my address.

Sandy- I'm not trying to do your job for you, just trying to save you a little time.:hug:

eep - I've been missing new posts! Sorry about that! I'm still up for the pink shawl, Stagebear, and we can work out a pickup time unless it's already moved on. Also, if you do indeed only need 5 knitters for it, I believe I'm the last one to join, so I'll step back unless someone else needs to. Just let me know:mrgreen:

Thanks so much! :) We'll still have 6 knitters. The 6th person only knits one time in the center of the shawl. :thumbsup:

Thanks, Genny! :muah:
MaryB, please remember to get some kind of delivery confirmation on the shawl. We don't want to lose our precious knitting! :pray:

It looks like you're gonna be working on two shawls at the same time! "Candy Shop" and "Barbie" :teehee:

The shawl is already 12" long.
Who's next?

Umm, what weight yarn is the Sunshine Shawl, I can't remember. :roll:

MaryB

Sunshine Shawl is DK weight----although, the Berroco yarn I used is just a slightly heavier than DK or sport weight.:aww:

Yeah, all our shawls right now are DK weight. I'm finishing up the worsted weight shawl right now.

The Sunshine Shawl has made it to my house safely!! :cheering: It is so pretty!

MaryB- thanks so much for the goodies, I love the yarn (just the right color for me), and the stitch markers are my first set of 'fancy' stitch markers, I can't wait to use them. The card is sweet and inspirational. And of course I immediately put the I :heart: Yarn pin on my shirt, it is perfect!

Thanks again! :muah:

:teehee: Sandy

I haven't had a chance yet to get the yarn for the Sunshine Shawl. My mom got put back in the hospital over the weekend for congestive heart failure and it kinda threw me off as far as getting anything done.
She is back home now, so hopefully I'll be able to get out today or tomorrow to get it.

Shandeh
11-05-2007, 12:44 PM
Poor Genny! :pout: I'm sorry about your mom. :heart:

You might have some yarn in your stash that would work. Any nice DK yarn will do. :wink:

GennyLynn1962
11-06-2007, 06:36 PM
I went out today and looked for yarn, I went to the 3 places we have here (Michael's, WalMart, Hancock Fabrics) and I ended up getting some yellow microspun.
I don't know what's going on here with yarn, it's kinda scary. There was hardly no dk or sport weight yarn, (only 1 or two at each place) I looked for the microspun at all 3 places and the only place I found it was in a clearance bin at WalMart. The other 2 places didn't even stock it. I'm afraid that I'm going to have to start buying all my yarn (except for Red Heart) online. If I want to start a project I don't want to have to wait for the yarn to come in the mail.:wall: The closest LYS is 45-50 min. from where I live, and it's not a trip I would make by myself.
Anyway, I'm not crazy about the color of the microspun so, I'm going to go through my stash to make sure I don't have anything I can use. If not the microspun will work.

Shandeh
11-06-2007, 10:24 PM
I'm sorry your area is losing yarn options! :pout:

Are you a member of Ravelry? (I can't remember)
If so, you can buy yarn from other members. Just look for the yarn you want, and look under the photos. Some of them say "Willing to trade or sell". I've bought yarn 3 times that way to complete my collection of certain discontinued yarns. It's easy!

GennyLynn1962
11-07-2007, 10:14 AM
I'm not on Ravelry yet. I was waiting for it to slow down a bit, but it doesn't look like it's going to.:teehee:

The microspun looks better than I thought. Actually I think it looks really good in the shawl. It's hard for me to tell when I'm looking at it in the store without my project to compare it with.

I mailed off the new Blues shawl yesterday to LadyJessica! I forgot to take a picture, though, sorry. :( I started it with blue microspun.

I'm still trying to get to the magic shawl... I promise I will get it knit by this weekend and in the mail by Monday!

Thanks for the update, Abbily! I just sent a message to LadyJessica, because I don't have her information yet (mailing address, etc). I also gave her instructions for working on the shawl.

As for the Magic Shawl - get on it, girl! (I have to sound like a Mama now, to keep the shawl on schedule.) :teehee:
:muah:

Stagebear, did I give you threesmom's address for mailing the Barbie shawl? I hope so. Threesmom, have you seen that shawl at your house yet?

Shandeh
11-09-2007, 12:32 AM
Here's the latest update on the shawls, to the best of my knowledge:

Worsted Weight - being completed at my house.
(sorry, I'm kinda slow this time - TOO MANY PROJECTS!!) :teehee:

Candy Shop - on the way to PaperGirl for the final section.

Sunshine - at GennyLynn's house

Magic - with Abbily

Barbie - on the way to Threesmom

New! Misty Blues - going to Ladyjessica

threesmom
11-09-2007, 03:35 PM
Shandeh - I haven't seen it yet. Stagebear and I attempted to meet up, then everyone was sick here,.. and she about to get crazy busy. We have been talking about meeting up Monday, so she may have decided to just wait until then.

stagebear
11-10-2007, 03:54 AM
soryy for the delay - my interent has been horrible for the last week and work has been crazy, so i havent been able to get on here to check in or to get threesmom's address. but we are planning a meet up for monday, so it's probably best if i give it to her then.
again, sorry for the delay.

Y'all will never believe what I received in the mail today: The Misty Blue Shawl!! Thught to be lost to the USPS. It was sent to me by Kellycarr on 6/5/2007 by PRIORITY MAIL according to the postmark. Priority pony express is more like it!! I didn't open it until I got home, so I have no idea what happened to it.:cheering: :happydance:

I've finally figured out that I can add pix when I first file a post, but cannot edit that post to add pix at a later time. So here are the pictures of Misty Blue shawl, who disappeared on a jaunt of her own for 5+ months.

Sandy, I finally finished my band on the hairy magic shawl- let me know who to send it to next. :)

Wow - that's amazing the Blues shawl turned up! I always thought that one was so pretty.

As for the Barbie shawl .... I'm just about done. I'll take pics if I find the cable to connect my camera to the computer. Who gets it next?

I just got the shawl today! :happydance: It was sitting there, waiting for me, when we got home from our trip to the mountains. What a nice surprise! :)

Genny, I love the fuzzy slippers you gave me!
They're WARM! :heart:
I don't know how I missed this thread before but if you need another knitter you can count me in! They look great so far!

Today, I received the "Misty Blues" shawl in my mailbox! :)
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2409/2057500165_1f6d4bb654.jpg

It's misty and it's blue....really lives up to its name. :wink:
I'm looking forward to working on it. Losnana forwarded some pretty aqua colored eyelash yarn to me as well. So soft! Kellycarr05 had sent it to her originally, stating that she could forward it if she wanted. I'm glad she did, because it's one of my favorite colors! :heart:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2230/2057498121_cb2066a858.jpg
It should work perfectly as an edging for a wrap. I think I'll really like it. :)

I also have the Sunshine Shawl as well, because GennyLynn1962 sent it to me last week. She sent some fuzzy slippers too!

The Barbie Shawl is lovely! I can't wait to work on it! I have the PERFECT pink yarn, just sitting here waiting for it. :wink:

I agree. Let's call it the "Happy Days" shawl so it will cheer up and quit hiding. :teehee:

Update on Shawls.

Believe it or not, I have FOUR of the shawls at MY HOUSE!
:roflhard:

Since I'm not doing any Christmas knitting, I offered myself as the next knitter to everyone. So, now I'm surrounded by shawls. :)

Misty Blues - I'm using a discontinued yarn called Elegance:

Sunshine - I'm adding more Debbie Bliss "Pure Silk" :inlove:

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/155/350216514_57f62e1542_o.jpg

Magic - I think we should change the name to the "Funky Shawl", since it now has hair! :teehee: I'm still pondering what yarn to use for my knitting. Abbily added some knitting with black yarn at the top of the shawl, but you can't see it against my black leather sofa.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2075/2075880655_bfb4c93513.jpg

Barbie - I just got this shawl today, and threesmom spoiled me with goodies! A skein of Knit Picks "Suri Dream" in Apricot, some scented soap, a cookie-scented candle, and a pretty little note pad and pen. (The journal at the bottom is for the Oddball Knitters to record their thoughts about the shawl.) I'm planning on using a sparkly pink yarn in my stash called Plassard "Laser".

I'm still hard at work with 5 of the shawls at my house.

I'm adding fringe to the Worsted Weight shawl. I'm VERY slow with this project! :help:

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2231/2079764562_a61d4c2d22.jpg

And I have the other 4 shawls in a huge LL Bean Bag, sitting beside my knitting chair in my craft room. That way, I can grab one as soon as I sit down and get to work on it. :thumbsup:

I have an LL Bean bag like that too.
Sandy- how do you add fringe? I usually grab 3 (or so, depending on what I'm working on) strands and put them together and loop them through at the same time. But I'm probably not doing it right. :shrug:

That's about how I did it when I did the purples shawl. I just cut all the fringe yarns, then grabbed them fairly randomly, 2 or 3 strands at a time, and looped them on. I did the two sides at the same time though, and used the same yarn on each side so that it would be fairly symmetrical.

WOW!! The shawls look beautiful!!! If you had to guess, how stitched wide would you say the www shawl is? I'm working on one for my sis and don't really know when to stop. It will probably be when I run out of yarn!

Shandeh

I LOVE the LL Bean bag. It's perfect for carrying several knitting projects at once. :thumbsup: It was a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law. She used to be a knitter herself! We have some handknit Christmas stockings she made for Marvin's kids. Marvin loves to hang them up every year. :)

You're doing fine. I chose to do one strand at a time with this one, because the colors are so rich, and the yarn is thick. We'll see how it turns out.

It measures about 60 inches wide, and the last row had about 225 stitches. Good luck with your shawl!

My LL Bean bag was a gift from my mother-in-law too. We used to take it camping, it would hold a lot of towels and blankets. I hadn't thought about using it for knitting, but I will now. :teehee:

hi everyone. i haven't been on for a bit, but the shawls are looking great!
sandy, do you know how many people will work on barbie before it comes back to me? i was planning a few weeks of vacation coming up, but may have to go home in the next few days for a family emergency, so i may not be able to check here. threesmom has my number, so she can give me a call too.

Shandeh
12-10-2007, 09:21 PM
If you want, I can make you the last knitter, which will make your next turn about 3 months from now.

stagebear
12-11-2007, 03:21 AM
no, it's ok to keep the order. i may just need it shipped to a different address and i may not be able to check in here, so i just wanted to give the heads up that it may be best to contact me by phone when it's my turn again.

Here's another update! :)

I finished my part of the Sunshine Shawl - FINALLY!
So sorry for the delay. I was bitten by the lazy bug. :teehee:
The good news is that I'm biting back now. :wink:
Here's my portion of the shawl:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2259/2111917039_4544ab527b.jpg
I used a variety of yarns for my section of this shawl. I started out with Debbie Bliss Pure Silk, then changed to Baby Bee "Sweet Delight", in a color called "Giggles Ombre". Next, I switched to Coral Lion Microspun. I really like the way they all work together.

Believe it or not, I finished my part of the Misty Blues Shawl too! :happydance:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2069/2111917909_3087ec793d.jpg
I used several different yarns for my section of the Misty Blues Shawl. "Elegance" was first, then I switched to a teal mohair, held together with a peacock-colored soft wool. Then, I cut the mohair, and added some bright blue ribbon yarn instead, along with the wool. Next, I finished my section with two strands of fingering weight periwinkle-colored "Melody" by Jojoland.

The Misty Blues shawl is VERY wide. :shock: I'm thinking that perhaps one of our knitters did an increase on BOTH ends and on BOTH sides. Because this shawl is much wider than the others. I had to switch the needle to a Boye interchangeable instead. I used TWO 24 inch cables, with a connector. So the needle is about 50 inches long now!!! :teehee:

I guess we'll have to finish this shawl up soon, or it will be too wide. Here's a photo of the entire shawl:

The pink Barbie shawl arrived this morning. It is beautiful and I can't wait to add my part.
Sandy also included an infant burial set for donation to a group at my church. Thank you so much, Sandy! You are so thoughtful.
Sandy must have checked out my craft room, because she added two very sweet needlepoint kits. Knitting and needlepoint----two of my passions!

MaryB, I'm going to trust that Nadja la Claire is ready to work on the shawl, because she told me earlier that she would be. I haven't heard back from her this week, but we'll act on faith.

I'll send her address to you now.

Sadly, the Dreamy Blues shawl never has shown up at LadyJessica's house. I have called the post offices (hers and mine) and she has called hers as well... perhaps it is taking a journey similar to the misty blues shawl and will turn up some day. I did mail it priority with delivery confirmation...I guess that wasn't good enough. :(

Shandeh
01-24-2008, 10:58 PM
Oh, how sad! :pout: Well, I hope it DOES turn up someday.

It's funny....just this morning, I made plans for 3 more shawls!

So, I'll start another one, and get it going. I have lots of circular needles now, since so many nice KHers have donated them for our projects! :)

Here are the names of our 3 new shawls, with a list of names from our current list of knitters. Please let me know if you prefer not to participate. Also, if anyone else would like to join, just send me a private message. (I have more plans for shawls, so I'm always ready to start another!) :teehee:

Misty Blues Shawl

Barbie Shawl
Nadja la Claire - waiting for shawl
stagebear

Sunshine Shawl
ElenTikvah - adding fringe to finish shawl

Candy Shop Shawl
PaperGirl - adding fringe to finish shawl

Magic Shawl
Shandeh - doing "surgery" to update shawl
If you're wondering what I mean by "surgery", here's the details:
One of our knitters on the "Magic" shawl used an eyelash yarn, which is not blending in well with the other yarns. (Our shawl guidelines are to use a nice DK yarn.) So, I'm unravelling the shawl to that section to remove the eyelash yarn, and it will be re-knitted with DK yarn. I will give you an update soon on knitters for that shawl. :thumbsup:

Later this week, I will be casting on to start our newest shawls, "Autumn Glow", "Flower Garden", and "Shades of Pale".

I've also come up with an additional shawl, named "Moonlit Forest". The knitters for that shawl so far are pinnut3200, jjminarcik, and myself. I need 2 more knitters for that shawl.

Just to remind everyone, our shawls are to be made with a nice, DK weight yarn. Thanks so much! :hug:

Okay - I'm about done with both the "misty blues" and "Shades of Pale"! I know I send the blues to you, Shandeh; who's up on Pale? And I'll try to get some pictures up tonight or in the morning.
Love it! :hug:
I'll get to work on the next "Shades of Pale" knitter. :wink:
barbie is ready for the next knitter!
I'll get the next knitter ready for you! :thumbsup:
The two I have are just about ready to ship off - and here are the pictures!
Thank you so much for the photos! :muah:

I received the Misty Blues Shawl from threesmom! :cheering:

Now, all I have to do is knit a few more rows, bind off, and add the fringe! If any of you have any leftover yarn from working on this shawl, you can mail it to me to use for the fringe. Just send me a PM, and let me know. :hug:

Here is a photo of the shawl, with a gift from threesmom. A tin of her favorite tea! (It smells heavenly!) cloud9

Where Lynn lives, she barely has dial up. She rarely checks her email or any site due to that. When she moves back close to me she will. She reads and catches up when she's here with me.

Ever hear the saying out of sight out of mind? Well I put the Autumn shawl up so Atlanta(my two year old) wouldn't get into it and kinda forgot about it but I finished my section tonight and I am ready to send it on to the next person. Shandeh let me know who is next on the list. If I remember I will take a picture before I pack it up to send it on.

Shandeh,

The shawl is finished, and I'm embarrased to say I can't remember what the name is, and who is supposed to receive it next. The last few days have been a bit crazy. Please let me know where to send it to and whom. Lynn sends her love, and hopefully in about 3 months will be on the forum full time.

Take care, and please forgive me...:aww:

Shandeh
03-25-2008, 11:15 PM
You are forgiven.

The shawl you've been working on is the "Moonlit Forest" shawl.
Should we change the name? Does your knitting fit that theme?

I'll check with the next knitter.

MommaG, thank you so much for the magnet (my daughter loves it!), the Canadian flag paper clips (I'm using one as a book mark), and the blue eyelash yarn. I'm thinking the yarn will make a good trim for a poncho or something for my daughter.
