New things on the horizon

I tested a pattern for the Swing Cardigan. I like the way it came out. I am also testing a shawl/stole pattern for a new designer. It is so pretty. I am on the second half now. I will be finishing the 2nd half and then starting the edging soon, this is what it will look like when done, except mine is done in crimson. The pattern is wonderful and beautiful. here is the link to the designer's blog site.

From there you can get the link to the Ravelry pattern. Try it. It is kind of a pattern you need to pay attention to at first, but once you get into the second pattern repeat it gets much much easier to fly thru.
here's what mine looks like so far. will post more pics when I am done.

Test pattern for girl's cardigan

I am doing a test pattern for a lady on Ravelry. I have the cardigan all finished except for sewing the pockets on. I need to get some straight pins to do it. Here are some pictures. I will put a link to the cardigan once the designer has put it up for sale.

I worked it in Colonial Blue Vanna's Choice yarn and it is knit. Once I get the pockets on, I will be sending to my niece Elena.
