A Quick Summary of My Day

Got up at 9.

Worked on making spreadsheets and doing calculations for Paddywacks.

Survived an accidental ten-mile bike ride*  -- o.O

Hopped in the pool for a bit to cool off.

Played Minecraft with the boys for entirely too long.


Danced for two hours.

Felt very exhausted and quite satisfied with the day for the rest of the evening.


*I was originally only going to be gone for thirty minutes or so...I ended up enjoying myself too much to turn around.

Paddywacks: New Shawls - Shuffle and Summer Sunset

Hello everyone!

Here are the two shawls I've finished in the last couple weeks. They'll be showing up in the shop in the next couple of days.

Shuffle is a mixed up rainbow of colors.  It's four feet long and knitted from mostly worsted weight yarn. 

Summer Sunset is a lovely combinations of pinks, blue, and yellow.  It's knit from a lace weight yarn and mimics mohair, though it's actually acrylic.

Since these two are shorter than my previous shawls so they will be a bit cheaper.  If you'd like to reserve one let me know.

Hello everyone! 

So, over the past couple of weeks I've been doing quite a bit of knitting.  There have not only been new shawls slowly accumulating in my closet but a few little critters have come out of all this knitting too.

Here they are:

Ta da!

The penguin pattern I got from this lovely shop on Etsy!  If you're interested, please pay her a visit!

I've actually lost the address of the site that I got the Octopus soon as I find it I'll post it for everyone.  This is actually my second octopus, I made another that I don't have pictures of right now.

Paddywacks: New Promise Shawl - Catch the Rainbow

Hello everyone!  I just finished my latest shawl and here it is:

This one is called Catch the Rainbow.  I chose the colors of this shawl specifically for their intensity.  I wanted to make a shawl that could almost speak for itself in its colors, and I feel like this one does.  This shawl represents the hope and joy of new life after the rain.

It's going in the shop today, so if you want to reserve it act fast!


P.S. I'll have an Itchy Fingers post later this week about some other projects I've been working.
