Notes: I did not finish this sweater in June as I planned, but it's chugging along nicely. The main part of the body is done (in one piece), one sleeve is done, the other will be done soon. Then I will connect them all together and decrease for the yoke. The guys are going to a basketball camp this weekend and I'm hoping for a lot of me time in front of the TV with the sweater.

After owning my camera for almost a year, I figured out how to use the macro function. Look at this cable, talk about stitch definition!

If you are a fan of the Wingspan shawl on Ravelry, you should know that the designer is going to make some changes to the pattern and turn it into a paid version on July 20. So if you like the current version, download it now.

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!

I also love those cables - love, love knit cables. Truly I do. :)

And the wingspan - maylin has definitely had a time with that design. I hope people actually buy the paid version from her, because it is definitely one of the most-made shawl patterns on Ravelry.
