FOs: Fuzzy Lamb and Rock Island Shawl

Two FOs today. The first is the Rock Island (disaster) Shawl. It's for my friend Dani, who is a vet and did a LOT to help us out when Beezer was so sick.

Yarn: Malabrigo Lace
Color: Midnight
Needle: US 6 (4mm)

Not the best photos, but black is tough to photograph and I was doing this by myself.

Also, I finished up Georgia's Fuzzy Lamb. It took me forever, but mostly because I kept neglecting to buy embroidery floss. I didn't really enjoy knitting this, simply because it was fiddly, had TONS of seaming, and I'm lazy. But it was super quick. I think the next time I make a toy I'll try out one of Ysolda's patterns. Georgia really wants Poppy...

Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride
Colors: Charcoal Heather and Sandy Heather
Needle: US 6 (4mm)

I suppose I'll have to knit a sweater for him now. :)

Up next is a lacy scarf for my mother. After that, I got nothin. I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?


  1. I never knit little toys, too fiddly!! So congrats with yours, you have done a marvellous job. And what a beautiful shawl too. Nothing to knit, hmm that sounds like when I lost my knit enthusiasm...

  2. That shawl is amazing, and GA LOVES her bunny rabbit!

  3. I don't know how I missed this post. THe shawl is beautiful. I don't like fiddly toys either, especially the sewing. But it's cute.
