Yarn Things

I finished the 'Surf' shawl and I am happy with it. The pattern is very nice and I made the smallest size to wear it as a scarf, the yarn is Caron Simply Soft Light in Hawaiian Sky from my stash.

I finally gave in to my curiosity about the Red Heart Scrubby yarn after I found a cute pattern for a dishcloth. The yarn is pure polyester and has little sparkly things in it. I was wondering how it would feel on my hands when working with it and if the sparkly things would end up all over the house. I was pleasantly surprised, the yarn feels much softer than expected and the sparkly things stay in place. The balls are rather large and I see more scrubbies in my future.

Two more squares have been added to the Petals and Diamonds blanket in the making.

And because I have only 16 (cough, cough, blush) yarn WIPs I decided to join Julie Yeager's Mystery CAL for the Sweet Pea Afghan.

This little guy is waiting to be turned into a pillow cover, hopefully in time for Halloween. Another Julie Yeager design.

Beautiful projects! You have been so productive. Love the new shawl/scarf. Hope it will soon be cool enough to need it.
