Finished Knits.

...whoa it's been a while. I'm two months into journal #19 and have five bits of yarn tied to the elastic band, which means I've finished five projects.  But none have been shared here; and until an hour ago I didn't have finished photos of those projects (plus a few others) on Ravelry either. I'm honestly not sure why I've been so remiss with the FO photo shoots, especially because Madeline is such a striking model!

She's been wearing my Meadowsweet Shawl (fka "Meadow Mystery") for weeks now; happy coincidence that the Prairie colorway looks so wonderful in my study!

She stands near a west-facing window that gets lovely afternoon sunshine.

Perfect for modeling shawls,
Piper's Journey, for my church's prayer shawl ministry
Linen Stitch Redux
and a soon-to-be-gifted surprise.
just a teaser for the blog, but knitters can see the full piece on Ravelry here
I also added photos of my Irokata Tee
These were taken at the shop last month
and Folded Poncho.

This poncho is probably my favorite finished piece of the past few months. It's knit in a lightweight cotton/silk blend yarn that's been great for the late summer/early fall, but it's just about time to put it away for the season. I have some Jo Sharp DK-weight wool in my stash; as soon as I knock out a few more projects, I think I'll make another poncho for the winter.

So yes, I'm still knitting... and finishing. I just need to get better about the photographs!

The sweater looks wonderful on you! All your finished projects have the "Mary". Your neutral colors, soft and subtle, look fabulous on you. The folded poncho may be just what I need for extra warmth. I'm going to check out the pattern.

All of them are beautiful. But now that's it, after seeing yours it's final, must make the folded poncho! Looks so cute on you!

I have been dreaming about that folded poncho for months! You've just convinced me that I must cast on! (Maybe right this minute!!!)

I'm on the folded poncho train too! Stash diving will occur soon. Your other projects are wonderful too. Madeline does wear them well!
