The first is the Cornwall Park Shrug. Recently the girls and I were shopping and they saw a party dress they quite liked. It wasn't in their size, but I said I could easily (ha ha ha) make a shrug like the dress had and they could wear it with a different (cheaper) dress. They readily agreed, and I've completed the first shrug. It is nothing like the one we saw in the shop, it is 100 times better. I used stash yarn (hurray!), which is a black aran 20% wool 80% acrylic yarn. I love the pattern.

The second project I completed was a last minute gift for a friend of my daughters. It is just one of those frilly scarves you knit up in day. I used Katia Ondas, and it was a huge hit with the kids. I didn't really enjoy the knit that much, but it was FAST (like a few hours fast), and I think I'll make up a few for Christmas presents. I do love fast projects.
Well that's it for me this week. I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to, I'm going to go take a stroll through blogland.
