oh brother!!!

hello stitching friends
not much progress here
but BBD SAL is slightly further along -click on the names
in the BBD SAL group in the side bar to see their progress this week:

As usual, I have already noted non frogged errors,
which will remain without fuss.
Note the new stash in the photo below
I could not resist:
even if they never get stitched.....what fun to dream about over a cup of tea!

But the big photos to share were just emailed to me by my "knitting since new year" brother....
another prayer shawl....and he has started a prayer shawl ministry at his church:

  Oh Brother you are wonderful!
Hope your weeks end is pleasing and warm.....smiles---corinna

fyi from my brother: Oh, I forgot. On the shawl I used Lions Brand Homespun - Golden, CO57, K3P3 throughout.

BBD...stitch along

thank you always for all your kind and encouraging comments

I was invited to join Nadia and her fellow stitchers
for a BBD  SAL (blackbird designs stitch along)
So that is a fun weekly motivator:
I have chosen a small sampler as my first project:
not much
progress yet...

...but it is
an enjoyable
choosing from
colors that I have
here at home.

also attempting to knit my first pair of socks-

and made a small token of thanks for Paula for the gift of her sweet prize:

i know i need to add everyone in thee BBD SAL as a list to my post
but that will probably be next week...til then see Nadia's blog  for all participants and their talents.....
I need to figure out how to save that list as permanent link
but it is time for sleep now.....

thanks for stopping by

Okay I received a DNF (did not finish), on my attempt to finish this sampler by the end of the Olympics.

I am still needing roof of house and tree to right of house....but before that
i decided the turquoise base to the basket of flowers required a color change
and have to repeat that my next post should have this complete...sure-sure.

but I did make a dishcloth:    (this pattern is from a blog titled kayla k's thrifty ways)

finished knitting another scarf ....picture later, it is being blocked

and a little freebie finish from  The Sampler Girl blog site
I used this as a gift tag......cute and stitch.

Now off to finish the sampler......ahem.......or maybe just a cup of tea and some more
stitchy blog googling......yeah
