Goings On

Believe it or not, I really have been knitting.



At the bottom you see some initial swatches, at the top the beginning of the actual project. This is the item I was knitting "straight from the swift." It will be a large triangle scarf/small shoulder shawl depending on how far the yarn goes. I've finished one skein and have one to go. It's Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the "Tahoe" colorway.

I've also started a sock. The cuff will be turned down when worn, so what you are looking at is the back of the pattern stitch. The ribbing will be hidden by the cuff. It's just there on the theory that it will help the cuff fit more snugly. This is also LLSS in "Sherbet"



I've had a certain amount of interference while working on it.



The sweater is one I did not make, though people always ask if I did. It came from St Vinnie's, never worn. There were several, which made me think some business had donated excess inventory. It cost much less than the yarn to make it would have, or even the roving to spin the yarn, so how could I pass it up?

I almost didn't recognize you with your hair down!

Good find on the St. Vincent's sweater.

Tantalizing previews of lace to come.

My lap anchor weights 55 lbs, so no blaming the cat!!

My local thrifts usually have crap in them.

Clever sock design using the ribbing hidden underneath the lace cuff! Though, you're teasing us by not showing us what the right side looks like!
