Knitting Tip from Pipeliner Shirley

A music stand comes in handy for skeining recycled yarn.  Loosen the bolt and use it as a swift.

Patterns in the Show
Ms Clarke by Brenda Patipa  I frogged this project because "Silk is a Slippery Slope".  Shifted gear and am using the Lisa Souza 100% Bombay Silk "Sylvie" for a Citron by Hillary Smith Callis.
Meeting Cheryl at Stitches Midwest renewed by interest in Citron.  She added beads to the lower border.

Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater by Rebecca Daniels
Free Pattern.  Notes on my Ravelry page here.  Great pattern and I made a few modifications so the arms and body of the sweater do not flare.

I came up with my own little hat pattern to use up all the yarn.  It looks like a little ski hat. I call it Toe Head.  Pattern on side bar soon.

Do I looks as if I walked out of Cranford?  I forgot my buckets as I came back from the well. Wool is Harmony Fingering Weight in Scottish Heather from The Woolen Rabbit.

Kaellingesjal before I added the top border.

High Notes

Musical Selection
Scotch Tune by Mr. Solomon Eckles (Eccles) performed by Da Camera on their album A Celtic Celebration.  Available from Magnatune.

Lovely shawl and great show! As for the silk, your only salvation there lies in Addi Turbo lace needles. Having done 2 shawls in 100% slippery, gorgeous silk, I know I'd never have finished either without them.

You do such lovely work! Your shawls and of course the elephant! I do love the little flowers and the choice of red! I look forward to listening to your current podcast during my morning workout!

I am also plugging away with my Noah's ark.
