Chocolate Covered Cherry Anyone?

This shawl has been on the needles for longer than I care to admit. I had started it way back in September. Then came Christmas knitting and such and the time I had to work on it was very limited. I made a huge effort this past month to turn it from an UFO into an FO. A perfect FO to picture today, the name of the yarn is Chocolate Covered Cherry - it's your viritual, fat-free Valentine treat from me to you!

Very easy pattern, I CO 58 sts, This gave me a 3 stitch garter edge on each side and then I worked a double seed throughout. I used one skein of Phentex Worsted Acrylic, 582 yards. Nice to throw over someone's chilly shoulders.

In other knitting I have started another of my Pay It Forward Handmade gifts yesterday. I'm officially working on three at once! I've got a bit of Startitis. 

I'm going to have to really learn to manage my knit time. I just finished spending my Christmas certificate from Eat Sleep Knit and I got to more from my DH for Valentine's Day!

I guess I won't have any reason to be bored in the next while.

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

TUSAL

Not too much progress on the TUSAL front.....knitting was a bit slower this month. I find January is so cold I just want to sleep through it.

February is here and I'm excited to have begun my first Handmade Pay it Forward. I also have a gift certificate for Eat Sleep Knit that is calling to me and one from a LYS. Time to choose some projects :)
