Hi, Craftsters!

First off, a hearty welcome to all the nice people who came here from Craftster thanks to Sunflowerfairy and Baigneuse. Have a seat, and I'll put the kettle on.

I think it's time for a progress report. A lot of the projects in the sidebar have gone dormant while I focus on my favorites: Intolerable Cruelty, Falling Leaves, and the Alpaca Shawl.

intolerable cruelty

This is center-front. The purl row down at the bottom of the picture will be the top of the waistband. I've just started decreasing as I pass the widest part of the hips. Only another 15 inches to go!

I'm almost finished with the Falling Leaves socks. I'd forgotten how quickly these things work up. Once I finish these, I should probably give some of my older projects some attention, but I'll most likely cast on with the Supersocke yarn and see if I can find a lace or knit-purl pattern I like. Speaking of the Supersocke:


It's not a colorway I'd usually like, but it spoke to me that day.

I haven't touched the Alpaca Shawl (I need a better name for this thing... suggestions?) in a while, but I'm still madly in love with it, and I'll probably do a few rows tonight. I think this is the best picture of it, color-wise. It really is that bright.

I love the scarf! Very pretty lace. Also, I've got to say that your progress bars are very positive - "15% finished".

That skein of yarn makes me think of spring. I miss spring.

And the alpaca shawl is now known as the orange shawl.

Sorry, that was as good of a name that I could think of.

I go to college why??

Feeling better?
