Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Tuesday 20 August 2013

Do I really need a new project????

Nope, I really don't. But, I've been seeing all kinds of pictures and talk lately about Dreambird, which is a really cool looking shawl type thing. It has really unique shaping and colouring, and I've never made anything like this before. I think this next week, starting Sunday, when we're going away camping for a week to 10 days, Just might be a good time to work on it. I've printed off the instructions, so that I can see them, since i won't have an internet connection, and we might not have hydro for running the computer either. I found a yarn already in my stash for the main body of it. All I had to do was buy the contrast. The colours
aren't quite right in this picture. The reds are more burgundy than it shows here. The really cool thing about this project, though, is that it is a group thing. We cast on our stitches on Sunday. Judy, at Patchwork Times, who manages to talk me into a lot of things, considering we've never even met, is hosting this knit along, and today we are to show our yarn choices. So, I'm linking up to the yarn choices post. Then, I have to talk my human yarn swift, aka, dear husband, into helping me get this hank of yarn into a ball of yarn.


  1. I love your burgundy for the background - it's a lovely strong color! Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out!

  2. Lovely, lovely yarns. I so wanted to show off mine today too but my computer is being a pill. Can't wait to start. Have fun camping and hope you get lots of knitting time.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
