And here we go again

Best intentions?  It certainly started out that way.  I pulled the two boxes of acrylic yarn out and started knitting.  I've made several blocks for my Primrose Path Afghan:

I made a few tawashi and pulled several lengths for a Stained Glass afghan.

I'm now down to one box of acrylic.

I'm pushing forward on my red/black Philosopher's Wool Tradition.


And this lace shawl that's been hanging around in the WIP basket for years:


Today the shawl was a real PITA.  The yarn keeps becoming a knotted mess.  Today after finally working through a second knotted mess the ball AGAIN barfed all over.  I was so angry I just broke of the mess and joined the ends, finished the row and shoved it back into the bag.  At least I managed to get 12 rows finished before I had my temper tantrum. But Dang Nabbit!!!!

New mantra for fall:  Finish all the THINGS!

Deadly socks!

Oh - I forgot to put up pictures of my Sock Sniper socks!

Aren't these cool!?


I love the color of this yarn.  It's a good thing I didn't have much time to think about that before I mailed them.  They are now merrily on their way to their new home.  I'm waiting patiently (for some very odd definitions of patience) for their arrival to be announced by their new owner.
