I do more than buy yarn and put it in plastic bags, you know.
Time for a parade of FOs.
First, Branching Out. I haven't woven in the ends yet but you can see how pretty this scarf turned out. I feel much more confident in my lace knitting and am thinking about doing Nancy Bush's Madli's scarf (have you made this one?)
The Streakers Shrug is knit in one piece and then seamed...and worn sort of like a big box with arms. Hard to visualize, I know, but I'm about 3/4 of the way done. La Lana Streaker's wool (hence name) is gorgeous to work with!
This yarn lives in my purse, and I find moments here and there to knit on the sock...it's Lorna's Laces and just lovely. I took this to San Jose and turned the heel at the SW STudent Banquet, and knit on it in the car, hence it got done. I like how the colors stripe.
Finally, socks for Tim made out of STR Medium Weight in the lagoon Colorway. He wanted a yarn that he could wear with his green shirts, and this one seemed to fit the bill pretty well. As it is medium weight, it works up pretty fast, and they feel terrific.
