Another Flower Basket Shawl

Last week there was some serious knitting time at work. Of course I took the opportunity to start yet another new project when I really should be tackling one of the numerous UFO's. I decided to start another Flower Basket Shawl with the Rowan Tapestry. The last one I made was in Colinette dk and was the scarf size. The Tapestry seems to be going a long way and it's looking as if I will get the small shawl size out of the two balls. I have one more pattern repeat and the lace border to knit and then it's finished. The colours are just great - really Autumnal.
Yesterday I lined the Fit To Be Tied clutch bag that I crocheted weeks ago and it is now officially a finished object. It's quite cute. I like these simple projects that use a single skein of yarn and can be embellished in various ways.

I am thinking that these could be great Christmas gifts.

I knitted a few more rows of the Madeline Wrap and am now past the armholes and ready to start the lacey front edging.

Ooooh, Love the clutch! I've been wanting to make one of these for a while and haven't quite gotten to it. This one is convincing me though, looks great.
