Finished Lina's gift and moving right along

I am just about done with my tote I am making for the felted bag exchange. You can see that I am having fun mixing up the yarn colors and textures too! Just have to figure out what type of handles to make or buy.

What a crazy weekend we've had. I was sort of sick. I slept on and off "ALL" day. Didn't go to prayer meeting Saturday nor did I make it to churck. I just sleep for the most part today. I feel like all my energy has been drained. Anyway I stayerd up till 3:30 due to a migraine. So I dimmed the lights and knitted a little. While knitting I am not thinking about the pain in my head. I was able to finish Lina's gift. I made her a shrug like I did for my daughter only I used the Nashua Hand Knits' Cilantro in Aqua and the trim I used the Bright white. I am in love with this yarn. It is stretchy whick makes it great for this pattern I think. Anyway I hope it does fit her.

Our friend Cat has her grandchildren for a while long story but we are helping her out by baby sitting for her. Senna is a cutie pie, as I type I can her the squeak of my rocker, Uncle Mike is rocking her. She is a tough little cookie she does not like to go to sleep at night. Angus has finally stopped his barking now. Anyway here is picture of Lina's shrug and also picture of the new yarn for the 3rd Forest Canopy shalw I am making.

I have the yarn on hold at my LYS for the Shawls I will be making for my grandmother, mom , aunts and my daughter. I will be using the Forest Canopy pattern because I like the way it turned out and it is an easy knit. I also have a picture of that yarn. I wanted something extra special for these shawls for the "Blunt" womenso I am using the Louisa Harding's Kimono Angora and this is it:

I will be making the edges a different color so that they'll each be unique, but also the same if you can understand what I mean. Then I will begin another one for the Bag-A-Holics swap. I really do enjoy these! Qwll I am off now Little Senna is still up so now it is Auntie Cheryl's turn to sit and rock her. Everyone have a blessed and awesome week!!

Love ya & Good Night,
