Shawls, shawls, everywhere!

Good morning everyone!  It is Wednesday, and we are Yarning Along with Ginny and joining in with Tami's Amis' Work in Progress  and Ambassador Crochet today!

It has been a productive couple of days.

On Friday, I was at a tax conference...which was quite a fun time...and as a result, I finished the teal shawl, and added some length to the emerald green shawl (which I had previously thought to be done....but obviously changed my mind...;)  ).

And then, I was at another tax conference on Tuesday.  Not quite as much fun as Friday (honestly, Friday's presenter was so good, I think most others will pale in comparision for quite some time....), but just as productive, craft-wise.  'Cause, lo and behold!, I was able to make another teal shawl!  Using the fishnet stitch was great - it really helped it all come together speedy quick!

After the conference, I indulged and finally stopped by the local library....I have quite the stash to hold me for a few weeks. In particular I am loving the Friday Night Knitting Club. 6 pages in and I was sold. Hook, line, and sinker. I mean, has everyone already read this? Am I late to the party? It is fantastic!!!

And, as an added bonus, I have been able to sink a bit more into the book I am reading via BookSneeze.  It is getting quite good, now that I am getting the hang of the story line :)

Well, that is all on this end :)  Head on over to Ginny's, Tami's, and Ambassador's Crochet other interesting ventures into fiber and literary fun.

I will see you there!


  1. I have read the knitting book, and loved it!!
    Your shawl is gorgeous too

  2. I think I better get me to some tax conferences! I might make some progress on my knitting...

  3. I wish I could knit at conferences! I would never have expected to hear such a positive review of a tax conference though ;)

    I'm pretty late to the party and still haven't read the knitting club book

  4. Loved the Friday Night Knit Club - great shawl!

  5. Yes...I read that book and LOVED it. I want to have a Friday Night Knit Club, too. This Yarn Along is good, though, but we don't get into the details and problems of our social lives, which is therapeutic...

  6. I loved the Friday night knitting club when I read it years ago :)

  7. I am impressed - I could never concentrate on a conference and a yarn project at the same time!

    Love the shawl!


  8. I have stared at that Friday Night Knitting Club book many a time but never picked it up, maybe I need to!!

  9. You'll enjoy Friday Nigh Knitting Club, I did. Posted about it a few months back...won't give anything away though. Love the teal color you're using for your shawl, have always loved the darker shades of teal. Thanks for the visit.

  10. I can see that you don't like to waste time! (tho I don't mean to imply that tax conferences are a waste of time!)
