In which I flash you

I'm finding myself a little short on words so I'll just flash you some knitting.

1. Tuscany Shawl in Ivory Seasilk




This is for my sister's wedding in August. It's a very straight forward kinda knit. The worst part is the the last repeat or two when you have 250+ stitches on your needles.


Turned out well, don't you think?



2. May STR Sock Club Socks : Cleopatra's Stockings





Another straight forward pattern which is complicated by the many pages it takes to describe the charts. The instructions to cast on start on page 7. Let's just say I did a lot of page flipping.



I'm not a huge fan of violet but I love the way this way ranges from a pale bluey purple to a deep grape color.


3. February Baby Sweater in Aslan Lorna's Laces Sport Weight





I started this yesterday and it's going very quickly. I just love knitting for little people.


4. Another pair of Froot Loops





OK, I haven't technically cast these on yet but I will very soon. This will be my first pair on socks on 2 circs. Tips, anyone?

That's all I've got. I hope you were suitably distracted by the pictures to note my lack of written content.

All these beautiful knits!

The violet socks are lovely, and Tuscany's a dream - I loved knitting it too, and wear it quite a bit.

The Shawl is gorgeous! I really like the purple socks. The baby sweater is so cute, I have to look up the pattern. I know I have the book somewhere.

Love all your knits. The Tuscany Shawl is beautiful and the socks are lovely.

At last my second pair of Slippery Socks are ready. They take too long time to knit. This is pair # 12 and still 12 pairs to knit in 2008 for the challenge.

Hey Joline! Your Tuscany is Beautiful! And smart choice avoiding the lace on the baby sweater to keep in gender neutral...I always think there's no way that lace could work for a boy (personal opinion).
