Been A While 10/7

This is a prayer shawl for a lady who lost her teenage son in a car accident. It's made from TLC Amore persimmon using a pattern based on the Pine Cone stitch from the Harmony Guide Vol 3. A close-up of the stitch is below.
This precious little guy is my great-nephew Tristan who was born in June. He was a preemie but is doing super now. His mom took lots of pictures of his smiling face.
This is my Monthly Bookmark mid-September KAL. Yarn is Grace. I probably should have used #10 cotton on this one.
This is the October Monthly Dishcloth KAL. I used red SnC.
This is a Christmas gift for Debit's sitters/groomers. I made three of these. All are made with Bernat Handicrafter. Pattern is from Rachel van Schie is designer. I know this dog is a lab but head shape and ears are a little like Debit.
Finally a picture of the twin set!!! It was made from Filtes King Kim. The pattern called Mella Cardigan and Shell is from a pattern book by Needful Yarns. Now if it would just get cool enough for me to wear it.
On the needles are Dublin Bay socks, a cute hat for Tristan's Christmas gift, monthly bookmark KAL and a baby blanket shawl which will be donated to local hospital and given to parents who've lost infant/toddler. I'm also finishing up this year's Christmas cards and gathering supplies for Christmas gift projects.
Pray for my friend, Julie, who has cancer and may not be with us much longer.
