Shalom Report

Hi Knitters,
My Shalom is progressing nicely. I finished the body and have sewn on two brown buttons with two more to go. The yarn is working up perfectly for the pattern.
I am using Cascade 128 on US size 10.75. It is so fast and fun.
I love the knit on front edging and bottom edge both in garter stitch.
Now for sleeves! Those will be fast and furious as well.

I have been working so hard on my work projects this week and my parenting projects this week. It has been busy, busy. There is so much to be done on both fronts. Check out one of my new patterns set for mid-June release over here on Spud says! It is a super cute and fast project.

I'll be back soon with lots more to share and hopefully with a finished Shalom. By the way, I have been wearing my Tea Leaves Cardigan so much. I throw it on in the early morning and at night over a t-shirt and jeans or a skirt when it has been a little chilly. I just love it!
Have a good night, Knitters.
best, susie

I´ve been looking for yarn for my Shalom now.
I have my yarn for my tea leaves I just need to dye it. That is this weeks project.

how does your house look so clutter-free? when i'm knitting a lot the picking-up is what suffers. :)

You can't see my studio, it is a yarn disaster right now. A yarn explosion! I shut the door when I walk out so no one can see how bad it is. The more I work the messier it gets.

I have to knit some sweaters and cardigans too!

Love the color of yarn you chose. You make us all want to make one.

I like your button choice, the rich brown goes really well with that blue. Amazing progress. ;)

The more I see pictures of Shalom, the more I feel like I need to make it as well. My summer knitting queue is getting loooong!
