I’ve finished another quickie project, a Frilly Scarf, for my Riders Edge instructor, Kellie. She thinks it looks good on Stella, too! Little does she know, I’ve got another bigger, better project in mind.

I started a new project that will take the frilly scarf to a whole new level, Shawl. I am 2 skeins of Schackenmayr SMC Frilly.

I got the link from a friend and there’s a link to the YouTube video tutorial, as well!

As I settle down for an evening of quiet knitting, I’m also enjoying what are my last two nights with my Last-born, Nats. She is moving to TX in two days, to join her husband at Ft. Hood.

I finished Erin’s vest, just 2 days before they arrived in town. I had her slip it on; the fit was perfect!
I enjoyed making it, I will be making another, very soon!
