Terra Shawl

I finished up my Terra Shawl a few days ago and I have been admiring it sitting there waiting to be photographed.  I really love this project. I had planned on working on it on our trip to Florida, but I started it at home and by the time I got on the plane to leave I only had 15 rows left to do.  I got about 8 done on the flight down and then it sat untouched for a week.  On the flight home I finished up the next 5 rows leaving the final 2 rows and bind-off for home.  I really loved the way it turned out. I am sure I will make this a few more times. I think it will make a wonderful gift and it is such easy knitting, which is so nice.

The yarn I used was Frolicking Feet Done Roving Yarn- Timberwolf. It is a sock weight 100% superwash merino yarn.  I was so excited that it only took me about a skein of yarn to make. I had a second skein and only needed it to finish up the last two rows and bind-off.

I know what I want to knit next but I need to purchase some yarn. So until I find the right yarn I am working on these Fireweed socks.  I am using some stash yarn.

I won some amazing prizes a few weeks ago with the Downton Abbey yarn along and I can't wait to show you all of the AMAZING things I won.  I have been running out to the mail box everyday to find so many wonderful goodies!  Also the prizes that came through email are so ridiculously exciting I can't stand it.  When I get them all together I'll share them and my plans for them all!
