And on to 2 miles 242 yards of knitting Jan.

This was knitted for my SIL for the Loopy Ewe Material Mixer challenge (yes there are beads thru out the shawl) in Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere in Chili color and tangerine beads size 6 by Miyuki pattern call Glitz on the Ritz.
Second Sun and Sand Shawl made with Art Yarns Silk ensemble Glitter and silk ensemble light for DD.
This is a lovely deep charcoal gray with burgundy hinted at and a light gray as compliment color.
This is same pattern Glitz on the Ritz done from a yarn grouping "Wicked Witch" that I had purchased as part of a Wizard of Oz sock group and never used.  There are black beads on top and tangerine beads on the bottom.  Made for my teenage niece.
First Sun and Sand shawl made in deep blues and Ink blue with silver Art Yarns.
Started this to began to use up the leftover sock yarns I have saved for years.  Then joined the Mad Dash (Queen of Hearts group) to knit as much as possible between Feb 15th and March 31st.  This will be my main project.  This group on Ravelry  is Stash Burn Down.

Also worked on a tutu skirt for Grand Daughter but haven't finished the last inch.  Decided late last night didn't like the first finished skirts look so ran a life line frogged the lace and began to do a different finish.  Still have 4 rows plus I am doing a picot bind off.  So, will post pictures in Feb. summary.

Joined Boo Knits Ravellenic Olympics 2014 group and I am doing the Thistledown Shawl from Fyperspates Fairy Wings in Forestry.  Joined Loopy Ewe Ravellenic Olympics 2014 with Hogwarts Express Shawl in Shibu Yarn.  And plan on doing at least one Cobweb by Boo Knits this in Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere Orchid with blush size 6 Miyuki beads.  I guess that is enough to keep my fairly busy specially while traveling for another major car show.
