Live ~ Laugh ~ Knit

Diane came armed with several projects in various stages of completion today.
She swatched for another Soft & Drapey shrug. She's using Soft Kid yarn as the main color and Semana as the novelty.
Diane finished her second Be Sweet Scarf in Ribbon Ball. She only used one skein this time.
She began her Easy Drop Stitch Scarf in Artyarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter. You can find the pattern on Ravelry. She was really happy with the pattern. Not only is it quick to knit, it's fun.
She began a practice swatch in Tahki Torino Bulky for the Misti International "Softest Chunky Throw" pattern. It was her first attempt at cables and seed stitch. She got the hang of it, the cables were a cinch.
Michelle is once again knitting the Lion Brand Artful Elegance Afghan in Berroco Comfort Worsted.
The Blue Sky Alpacas "Bobbi Bear" is very nearly done. We cinched the neckline. If she had the ears, we could've finished today. Ah well. She's almost got me convinced to knit one. At least this bear is knit in one piece. I couldn't stand knitting all the pieces of the bear and then sewing it together. The knitting itself was boring and the bear came out all wonky.
