  1. Oh, G, I love your Gemini -- what a great color and it looks wonderful on you. Now about those skeins of Skein!! <3

    1. Ahhh, those skeins of Skein. I picked it for the Hogwarts Express because I think it's Owlies-appropriate and the Owlie border will look great, especially with green beaded eyes.

  2. Your Gemini looks super duper Gerry! Once again a lovely knit flying off your needles! I am binding off my cardigan and then on to the sleeves. My daughter gave me some very pretty yarn for mother's day and I will hopefully be casting on an Annabel cardigan soon.

    1. Is your Annabel cardi the one of Rav with what looks to me like a seed stitch?
      Tracey, anything you knit is beautiful.

    1. I'm looking forward to working on the Hogwarts and may even attempt some sort of cardigan with some of the same yarn.
      And, I'm wild for that Pink Raspberry color.

  6. Just went back through some posts...my you've been busy:) And quilting books too? Wow. Someday I'll be able to have time for crafty stuff again. When I do, it's counted cross stitch. Use to sit for hours doing it. Now I'm too busy trying to survive in this economy. That being said, I'm off to work:) You have a great day with your needles, creating more beauty.

  9. Oh, so lovely. I'm feeling the purple in the garden this year and so that yarn is right up my alley. Can't wait to see how this next project turns out. OK, it's another beauty here today, so......off and out I go....

    1. I'm finding real joy with my knitting time. It surprizes me since I have many interests relating to needlework, but lately all I want to do is knit.
      Love your work, Victoria.

  11. The colour suits you to a tee!! Job well done. Another pattern to bookmark on Ravelry. I have been eyeing Skein yarn ever since Knitabulls mentioned it; yours are beautiful.

    My daydream is being on an alpaca farm surrounded by cute furry creatures. Knitting of course, and sipping a glass of super cold Chardonnay. Instead, I am in my office, surrounded by unloving paperwork and Starbucks Jet Fuel. Sigh. I like my daydream much better.

    Hugs, veelau

    1. Knitabulls is where I learned of Skein. Her shawl was terrific.
      Hey, we live on those DayDreams, don't we.

      As far as that Gemini and the Pink Raspberry - I'll tell you right now that color just makes my heart sing. Have one skein left and just might have to buy a couple more.

      hugs

    1. I will make something else using that very same color "Pink Raspberry" before year's end.
      Can you believe the shawl can't be co 'til the 27th for Camp Loopy.
      It's taking all the will power I have not to co NOW ! ! ! ! !
      thanks for the inspiration to knit on

  13. By Gemini, that is absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!
    I want to see it modeled on Wednesday.

  14. Mmm! I love the colour for your Hogwarts Express Shawl. The Gemini sweater is pretty! Just right for summer! It's funny to see your side of the world is all green and sunny now that we're in the shadow of winter.

    1. Have to say, we are enjoying the green that Spring brings. Not that we had a 'bad' winter, but still look forward to the greens and blossoms.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. Thank goodness for Internet shopping, so far haven't been disappointed how each yarn is represented for sale. Mostly the colors are spot on in person.

  17. OH MY Gosh your beautiful and so is your top. I love how this turned out.
    The color on you is prefect.
    I so wish I could get your haircut. Every time I go to the beauty shop and tell them to cut my hair off they refuse. Crazy right. I need to take this picture of you and tell them this is what I want to look like.
    Love ya

  19. Love the Hogwarts Express pattern. I did a baby sweater just before I left MO and it used the cable owls. (Pic on my ravelry page) They were fun after I got comfortable with them. I look forward to seeing how the shawl progresses in that lovely yarn.
    Happy knitting!
