Theyarn is RedHeart, the pattern is Sashay. I found it rather frustrating to knit because you picked up the yarn on the edge & it was hard to get a rhythm going. I made 2, one with 10 stitches & the other 6st. I prefer the narrower ruffle.

This is a vest made from Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande, Plymouth pattern N026. It is a very easy one-size-fits-all pattern.

the cowl is "Maruschka" by Birgit Freyer at Knitting Delight - the yarn is by Hand Painted Knitting Yarns called Biellos which is a braided mohair/nylon combination and the button is a hand made caned glass button by Mike Hayes at 3rd Degree Glass

the scarf/shawlette is called "LazyLara" also by Birgit Freyer at Knittnig Delight - the yarn was a gift from Toni and is Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester 2/8

The blue sweater is mohair knitted by my daughter Maggie D. The scarf is a JoJoLand pattern and yarn using patchwork technique in hexagon shape.  The knee high socks are of Cascade Heritage sock yarn using a basic kneehigh pattern but with cable and lace stitches.

The pattern is Basketweave Scarf by Ann Budd, originally published on Knitting Daily, Fall 2004.  The pattern was actually free, part of Knitting Daily's free knitting patterns they routinely offer in their e-mail newsletters.  It is pictured on a man, but I thought it was a very pretty woman's scarf!  The notes from Ann Budd say she used the Double Basket Pattern from Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting.  The yarn is from the Queensland Collection, Rustic Tweed, 63% wool, 27% alpaca, and 10% donegal, and I bought it at the Knitcraft Yarn Shop in Independence, MO.  We were visiting the Truman Museum, Home and Farm, which were fascinating to see on a weekend short trip.  I highly recommend them.

The necklace is in "101 Designer one-skein Wonders", it requires 1.75 oz of cotton yarn, or your choice of similar weight and 178 (approx.) size 6 seed beads.  It is best to get a "good" bead that has uniform holes.

Pattern of the shawl is the "Lazy Katy"  by Birgit Freyer. The yarn I used is the Chroma fingering (396 yds)  from KnitPicks in the color "Pool party" . I wanted my shawl to be larger thus it used up a little more than 1 skein (~ 440 - 460 yds)  of the Chroma. I knitted the stockinette part up until I had 181 sts,  then decreased 1 st in the middle and started with the lace part. It is helpful to use stitch markers with the lace part.

Wonder what those charity projects look like?
