Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl
Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl, pattern by Paula Emons-Fuessle
Yarn: random assorted lengths of yarn from the De-Stash table at Common Cod Fiber Guild's Fiber Camp. (Some of the colors were donated by Alasdair and I love knowing I incorporated some of his creativity, albeit extremely indirectly, into this project).

This is my third Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl. I know, I know, why three? I guess I just can't move past the fascination of how the colors will look as I finish row after row.  The construction of the cake is described in this pay-for pattern, along with the magic knot technique. The other delight in this shawl is the Suspended Bind Off. I do love doing it and it makes casting off the 600 plus stitches more fun. I know, hit me on the head with a knitty-noddy.... I know, I am crazy!!  One modification I use when knitting this pattern is to begin the new color at the start of a row, it looks cleaner to me that way.

The garter ridges are so sculptural.

My first shawl was knit from a magic cake created by Mel and Barb at the Maine Knitting Pipeline Retreat.
The second shawl was from yarn de-stashed from a friend. I recently sold it, I never took a picture of it finished.
Sanibel Cowl
Sanibel Cowl, free Berroco pattern by Beth Ann Paustian
Yarn: Berroco Boboli Lace on size 6 needles.
I have made a number of these cowls and love the length and drape of color as an alternative to a necklace. The yarn is a gorgeous array of blue tones that I fell for while visiting the Iron Horse over April vacation. I find this such an easy pattern to work on while chatting with family or watching a movie. Simple but beautiful....

Brickless, pattern by Martina Behm
Yarn: Interlacements, Toasty Toes in the Turkish Carpet colorway, from Virginia Beach Knitting Retreat, size 6 needles
I bought this yarn at KnitWits while on my Virginia Beach Knitting Retreat. I fell for the 560 yards of bright jewel tones. My friend Julie also bought a skein and we each knit a Brickless. This is another easy to follow, paid-for pattern that I can work on while in the company of others and not make mistakes. I still have not blocked it and I expect it will look even better when stretched out.
