No finished projects to show. My current knitting project is a shawl using the same yarn as this top. The yarn is Classic Elite Yarns Firefly. I started a scarf using a very simple pattern (Firefly Scarf) as I had received a notice for jury duty and wanted something I could take with me. I lucked out as I was later notified the cases for my week were all canceled. The scarf pattern in the yarn looked so blah that I unraveled it and chose a different pattern. Here's the firefly scarf approximately two thirds done before I unraveled it. I think the scarf would be lovely in a different yarn.Pear Sorbet Shawlette by Marly Bird.

I knit this beach bag using Jute macrame rope, 3-ply, from Hobby Lobby. Next time I think I will try 2-ply which should be less stiff and easier to use. Still it turned out rather well. The pattern is Sea Breeze Bag. The first photo is taken with my running shoes in the bag to an effort to "stretch" the bag out.
