I already knit a cowl while on vacation (I was staying in a cabin in the woods, it felt wrong not to knit, lol).

I'm probably more than halfway done with a sweater for one of the dogs (she'll need it in the winter, so I can take my time a little, first piece of clothing, so I'm being careful I get the sizing right).

I also have a simple winter scarf going that I knit at night before bed when I'm not ready to sleep, but don't want to mess up something that's more complicated.

And I'm about halfway done with a lightweight kind of lace scarf. I'm having fun with this pattern.

And I'm already planning some of my projects for fall and winter, lol. But I need to get these done first,  Cheesy

Ooh the kitty is cute, and that stole looks oh so soft <3

I'm also knitting for the cold months ahead! I've just started a Staggered rib scarf in a super soft chunky purple yarn.

In a couple weeks though, the kit for my All That Glitters shawl will arrive! Can't wait to get started on my very first shawl Cheesy

Oh, that will be pretty shawl! I'm also going to be knitting my first shawl for this winter! I can't wait to start! Smiley

I'm also going to start knitting a patchwork throw.

And a cute, baggy hooded cape.

I want to start them all right now! haha!! I have the yarn for my shawl and the blanket, it's hard to keep myself from starting yet another project, but I really want to finish the dog sweater and my lace scarf first.

Thanks! I certainly am using those colours! They're what first drew my eye to the shawl. Also, I've never knitted anything that light and lacy before so I'd like to try something new.
