Flying Needles!

Look at what these two talented ladies have made!
L-R:  Dee looks sharp in her Aranami shoulder wrap knit with Frog Tree's 'Pediboo'.
We have the pattern and a display model knit in Spud & Chloe sock yarn. 
Susan wears her On the Moor shawl (Ravelry) knit in 'Smooshy'.
The Faroese style shawl features lots of tiny cables on the front
 and a large Celtic cable design on the back--magnificent!
