Shrugs, Eco Friendly Bags and More....

Rita finished the shrug and was excited to model it. She used Lion Brand Jiffy yarn which she bought on sale at Hancocks Fabrics. This shrug was worked using size 11 knitting needles so it knits up very fast. The pattern is available at the Cottage Yarn in Mint Hill. Now that it's finished she can go ahead and make more bags.

Delores finished the sweater she was working on a couple of weeks ago and assured me she would bring it next week.

I fell in love with the Peek-a-Boo crochet blanket Janet has almost finished. This one will be donated to the Home for Battered women in Monroe. Babies love to poke their fingers through the holes so this one will bring hours of enjoyment.

The bags which will be sold during the May 16 Book Sale at Mint Hill continue to come in. They are beautiful and worked in an array of bright colors. At least a couple have already been claimed.

Pat's Crochet Market Bag

Another project which is in the finishing stage is Julie's baby girl lacy bottom cardigan. She is giving this one as a gift for a friend's baby.

Barb is also almost done with her market bag. She used fine cotton thread and size D crochet hook and as result the bag is much smaller. This bag can be rolled and stored in a pocket. It's a very clever design. She likes it so much, she will make one for herself.

Barb's bag features a pocket in which she can keep it for easy storage.

Great shrug. I'll do my first over the next few days, with a different style, want long sleeves.

I'm doing the bag, but had it froze for a few months, now I can't find the link for the pattern...

You can peek mine here: http://blogdesandramaria.blogspot.com/2009/01/first-three-reached-destination.html

Guess I have to finish it by looking at the part that's already done lol

Nice blog, I'll visit again.
