Actual knitting content

Shocking isn’t it?

I have 2 finishes, a WIP, and a start to report. I completed my Eye of Keith Partridge shawl. It still needs to be steam blocked along the top edge, but I’m really happy with it.

I also finished a pair of socks. I’d wanted to try some “Flat Feet” I had in my stash, so I caved in and cast on. I love the way the color translated onto the socks. I finished the toe of the second sock last night.

And I started another pair of socks. A while back I used the Yarn Over Cable pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks and I loved it. So I ripped out a pair of socks I had started with some Smooshy in Butter Peeps and started the new pair. I’m so happy with the result, and the sock is knitting up really fast. I forgot to take a picture because I was getting tax stuff together and making sure I didn’t forget some things I needed to bring into work.

The lunch knitting sock is coming along. At least I’m past the heel and onto the foot.

I think I’m back in the sock swing again, which is a good thing because I have so much sock yarn.

And last but not least, I got a copy of Knitcircus in the mail (thanks to an offer to share an issue with a friend). I think it’s a great magazine, has a lot of interesting articles as well as patterns and a few other goodies. I’m planning on subscribing. You should definitely check it out.
Since I only have 2 knitting photos... Here is a recent picture of my coffee brown cat.

I loves my veemin Deeeeee.

I haven't seen that magazine. So sorry to hear about your knee troubles. Feel better soon, whichever option you choose

I have the uncontrollable urge to throw my panties at your Eye of Keith Partridge Shawl! It turned out great!
And you're right, the sock color turned out "jawesome."
