WIp Wednesday

I am still working on my Winter mystery quilt, I am halfway through clue #4 of 5.  I love the way it is knitting up!  I have been reading a fun, silly book Leave it to Cleavage.  About a woman whose family owns a bra factory.

I have also been dyeing fabric!  What fun that is!

This is my WIP Weds, KCCO and Yarn Along post for the week.

Coffee with Friends

I love these beautiful coffee cups!

My winter mystery shawl
We had our coffee and knitting group at Karen's yesterday.  Fun!  Four of us were there.  I brought along a poncho that I started using some vintage sport weight acrylic a friend had given me.  It is knitting up quickly on #15 needles.  Karen finished her 16th out of 20 log cabin blocks.  Debbie was working on a pair of mittens using a bulky weight yarn.  Joy (I did not get a photograph of her project) was working on a wingspan shawl using her handspun yarn.  A fun morning of good friends and lively conversations!

Happy New Year!

I finally started my Winter Mystery Shawl!  We were traveling over the holidays and I concentrated my knitting on a hat and socks for Sweetie.  And dishcloths while driving.  I will post those on FO Friday.

I read several books on the trip, they were OK.  I just found "The Whole Enchilada" by Diane Mott Davidson at the library yesterday.  I love this series, so hopefully this book will be a good one.

I love the way the turquoise beads look with the purple yarn! And this is a new shape, 4 long skinny triangles with a stitch in between each section.  I just love these mysteries!

I love taking sunset photographs!  This is from the last day of our trip.  It was taken at Boulder Beach Campground at Lake Mead in Nevada. It was quite the show!
