Some things to share!

Oh no…..I’ve been off candy for weeks now and I just succumbed to a Snickers. I don’t know why I thought I would see a trick-or-treater here. They usually don’t arrive before I play Halloween hostess at Bill’s front door.

It's done!!!

It’s done!!!

This knit poncho shawl was meant to be a quick knit….one of those that I would pick up and knit mindlessly and be done quickly. Where did the time go?!

I started this project, knit in MaggiKnits cotton/linen, in Oct 2012. No trick or treat here! It’s done. I am driven to post this today to celebrate Halloween and the completion of this simple knit. I have been involved in many knitting projects and I must confess that my trusty friend, the iPad, has consumed some of my time as I reconnect with friends and family…as well as do family research. Last week my Thursday knitting workshop group helped me pick out decorative buttons for accent to this knit. But, the more I thought I about it I realized that I want to accent this piece with brooches, pins, etc. The last one I knit about 6 years ago is embellished with ribbon. I’ll post that photo later for comparative design purposes.

For now I am on a mission to share this completed project with you and to wish you a Happy Halloween…..and then off to dinner with Bill and then a farewell drink with my cousin Dana, from Hawaii, who has been in the Bay Area this week for a health compliance conference. We played last Sunday but now it’s time for a farewell.

So….Happy Halloween!!!!

Of course….stay tuned! There is much to share and I am almost “back” to the sharing….so many of you do such creative and lovely work.
