It's been so long....

It's been so long since I've updated my blog that I forgot my password. Shish so many passwords, so little time.

I have been so busy knitting and some traveling and cooking that I have not had much time to pay attention to my blog. But I'm back. I want to post my latest kinitting projects:

and the back view:

I designed this piece with "something to warm my shoulders" in mind. When I completed the project I took it to "Stitches from the Heart" my LYS and Brandi put it on and she looked great in it, so I gave it to her.

It's made of "Noro" wool. There was 3 hanks but no label so I'm not sure which Noro it is. All I had was 3 hanks so I just started knitting a triangle by starting with 3 sts and increasing one stitch at the beginning of each row for 10 inches. Then I switched to increasing 2 stitches at the end of each row: the last stitch I knit then knit in the back and knit in the front.

Voila! Sewed the tails to the V left arm holes then added the fringe by picking up stitches all the way around with my 60" circular needle. Increase every other stitch, knit one row and crochet bind off.
