Happenings July 15

Welcome to Happenings, where you will learn what Rachel has been up to this week. Check back every week for Finished Items, Works-in-Progress, Reading, Watching, and Hearing. As well as tidbits from other crafters that caught her attention.

FINISHED ITEM
This project was started last year, then brought out of hibernation and now finished. Rachel's Swirl Skirt shows even those tricky yarns can find the perfect project. It was going to be knit using MMario's Queen of Tides Shawl pattern, with fewer increases to form the skirt. Plans change, and the finished object only uses two rows from that pattern. Despite the small needle size, this simple pattern worked up fast.


WORK-IN-PROGRESS
The linen stitch scarf should be a finished item next week, though the yarn is going further than I thought. I'm also winding yarn today for a secret project, but it won't be secret long. The pattern for Sarah's Shawl is being finalized, look for its release later this week. Love the colors:
