Natural Medicine

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I'm recovering from a nasty cold. Yestaerday I did nothing but knit.....no housework, no paperwork, no stress.. just knitting and spinning.
Here is a sneak peak at the Bottoms Up Leaf Shawl:

The leaf pattern and scalloped edge will show up better once I block it and pull out the points. I've fully enjoyed knitting it from the bottom up. Normally, when I knit shawls from the top down, I get bored and end up with a shorter than planned shawl, so I decided to design this one in reverse. You knit the longest rows at the beginning when you are most motivated, then it just gets faster as you work up. The pattern will be available through the shop soon, and I may even offer it as a spin and knit kit, and as a knit kit with hand dyed yarn or handspun yarn.

The Kid 'N Ewe was a huge success, and the most fun I've had in some time. I am planning for next year already!!

By the way, I've added the pattern for the Reversible Cabled Scarf to the shop, as well as needle felting kits, which you can see here on this page

Your shawl is looking good. I haven't started on my mom's shawl yet. Trying to finish my bulky cable sweater first.

I started knitting the shawl Saturday when my mom wasn't home. And I got your email on the wheel...now I'm tempted. We'll see though. Remember when I said I was only going to have one WIP at a time, well now I have 3. I'll probably finish 2 of them this week so I'll have time to work on the shawl.
