WIP's

Here is a cardigan I'm making for DD using up some yarn that was wasting space in my stash. It's Lion Brand Microspun, using a strand of vanilla and a strand of lavendar held togather on size US10 1/2 needles. It's going really quickly, and looks much cuter IRL than it does in the pic. I'm working on the sleeves now, and I still need to find some buttons that will look cute in it. I'm thinking of making some wood beads into buttons for it.

Here is a pic of my current pair of socks. I'm just doing basic 2 circ, cuff down, Stockinette stitch socks with a 2x2 rib for the cuff and a short row heel. I'm using Regia Strato yarn in the colorway # 5740, and size US 1 needles. Please ignore my pasty pale leg & foot in the pic. :)

and here's my progress on my Starsky. In the post below you can see the finished back and left front panels, and here is a pic of what i have so far of the right front panel. I am done with the ribibng and am ready to start row 6 of the banana leaf chart. After this panel I get to start the sleeves.

And I am still working on my peacock feathers shawl. It's progressing at the insanely slow pace of about 2 rows a week. It is difficult to find enough time where I can concentrate on the lace pattern, but I LOVE knitting lace so it's worth it. I have also picked out my next lace shawl pattern. I'm planning on knitting the Shetland Tea Shawl from A Gathering of Lace (pg. 38). It's an absolutely beautiful circular shawl knit from the center out.

Those socks look great. I love the way the heel came out.

Hi Anja-love the colour of yiur socks and it seems you knit them the way I do. Re your comment on my blog about Ebay-I only sell my machine knits on there. i don't sell HK's as they take too long to knit! However, the MK are all my own designs, and hand sewn with invisiable seems etc.
