A finished shawl.

I have completed my lace shawl and I love the way it turned out! It's light and soft and I think I'll be wearing it a lot. I decided to do a picot cast off to give the edge a little more detail. Here it is...

Here is the pattern on Ravelry.

What do you think?

A little knitting for me...

So people always ask if I still enjoy knitting since I've started my Etsy shop, and the answer is YES! I don't often knit anything for myself so when I do make time for it I spend a lot of time finding the perfect thing for me. I've chosen to knit a lace shawl, Azzu's Shawl using Twinkle Sock from Another Craft Girl in Silver. This yarn is amazingly beautiful silver and grey with little sparkling silver strands that glimmer in the light. I can't wait to wear it!

Notice the beautiful ring I have on in the last photo. It's from JeannieRichard!
It's their Metallic Black Ring and I absolutely love it! 
here's a close-up of the ring

I have one in copper too, it's gorgeous.
You should check out them out, they're having a sale through July 31st.
That's all for now, I promise to post a photo of the finished shawl when it's done.

New for Fall 2012

Even with our 100 degree Summer temps here I have Fall weather on my mind. I've designed a new Ear Warmer / Headband using the same Cable design from my WindyCityKnits Cabled Cowl Scarf. I've gotten a lot of requests for matching hats and headbands and this new one paired with the scarf makes a wonderful Fall/Winter set. All of these are available in Child sizes too.
