finishing up....

The pouch is finished and I made a matching pin cushion.

click on the images....

lined with an old hanky and crocheted an edge

front of pouch

matching pin cushion with leftover hanky bits. measures 5" square


...and the knitted shawl is almost finished. i've decided to add a crocheted edge and then it can be blocked. Right now it measures 18" x 72". Not a great picture but I'll take a better one when it is completed.

18" x 72"... will get a crocheted edge and then can be blocked.

We've been having cool mornings in the 50s and 60s but it still gets hot in the afternoon. Enjoying the delightful mornings. Have a great weekend.

I love all your finished pieces, but have to say that the pincushion is probably my favourite. I still love those teeny little touches of red!

Beautiful shawl!! I love the pouch and pin cushion also. Glad to hear you have cooler weather there. I'm building an ark here.

Love the pouch and pin cushion Deanna - those hankie squares are making up into lovely things. I also like your knitted shawl - warm and cozy for the coming cool days. I've been pondering knitting one for myself this winter but haven't found teh right pattern yet - I am not much of a knitter so it needs to be fairly plain but most shawl patterns are quite lacy and intricate.

You must be happy how the pouch turned out. I love it, I love the blue fabric on the pouch and matching pin cushion is a perfect pair - Hugs Nat

Hi Deanna, the bag is fantastic, all the detail, a treasure. And the shawl is beautiful. Did you change needle sizes at all? I just noticed that option mentioned somewhere on Ravelry. Yours went really fast -- I'm starting on Thursday. You find the best patterns, thanks!
