Im working on a new piece

Its a warmer shawl- done in a fern color. and Im making it a bit longer and wider then my other shawls so it can really offer a lot of warmth.
Im loving the feel and the texture that's showing-
I'm working with a new yarn- Cascade Yarns ECO- It's 100 percent Peruvian Wool so its very very soft and warm. Not scratchy at all. It's goin to be cozy for whom ever buys it.
IF I have yarn left over ( I might) Ill make a hat or scarf ( or both) from it.

The hat below took longer then normal

The hat below took longer then normal for various reasons .... mostly because of my shoulder.
HOWEVER good news! I can hook longer then I was and I started a bigger project.
Hopefully this will go much faster and I know Im happy with the out come.

the hat I made was a challenge because Im use to making a hat quickily- I had to start it a couple times and re work my gague a few times because of shoulder fatigue.
soon I hope to be back to my old tricks and speed.

the newest hat I have finnished- 100%wool
