Garden Shawl, Liesl, and Hooky Spring

Beautiful day to finish my "shades of green" shawl.  Hot off the triloom!

I wove this using a lovely Noro yarn.  Blend of wool, silk, and cotton.  Very light weight and soft.  Perfect for cool evenings in the garden..........  This one will be going to a friend up north I'll be visiting later this summer.

Finished my most favorite Liesl tunic in eggplant.

I finished knitting this about two weeks ago, and have worn it about five times already!  Love the linen yarn.

Working on a rug for grandson, Graham.  His room colors are red and blue with browns.... Thought a hit n' miss using those colors might be fun.

If you hook rugs, you probably know that hit n' miss is not as easy as it sounds.  I don't just grab strips from my basket, but give thought to contrast and placement of neutrals.  It's a fun hook, but can get a bit tedious.  I'm only about half done with this piece.  Thinking of finishing with black covered cording.  I've got three more children's rugs waiting in line when I'm done with this.  Lots of hooky ahead!

Hi Dulcy! Such a collection of pretty things. Isn't it nice, at last, to have an outdoor photo venue? I'm headed out to mine in a few minutes to attack some weeds. Will look forward to seeing the other rugs for the kiddos!
