Using my Tina's Choice Mystery Bag yarns bought at OFFF 9-23-12. Looks like it will be a fun knit! Tina's color choices are always interesting to watch as I knit. Oh, they are medium weight so I've moved up to a size 6 circular. If I need to, I have left over STR yarns I can use for the bottom edging so I'm not worried about running out of yarn.

Kelly's Ingvold Aran cardigan

Won second place in Pro division at 2012 Oregon State Fair. Never did find the first place item.

On the Moors shawl won First place and Reserve Champion at 2012 Oregon State Fair.

Had to have a Fair staff member open the cabinet so I could find out what the second blue ribbon was for. Hope they make some changes for next year!

Made for a swap with SIL for a hand made by her shawl pin. She does amazing jewelry and I'm excited to finally own a piece of her artistry!

Tying knots and trimming ends inside right Erin sleeve.

I use a surgeon's knot to tie the yarn ends, cut the ends about a quarter inch long, and let the ends felt into the fabric.

Front edgings cast off on Erin.

Later today I will do the collar. So close to getting her done now! I found out I need to get a couple more buttons for the front. For some reason I only got ten and it really needs twelve. Hope the fabric shop still has them in stock!

Now I'm going to pick up the body stitches for my St. Enda so I can knit on her while we go visit my Mom at her nursing home. I'm praying she remembers me this time. Have a good holiday everyone!

Buttons for Erin

Brass buttons are front, blue buttons are to back front ones. I sew plain buttons behind fancy ones to take stress off the knitting.
