Flower Basket Socks

I've been enjoying myself with some sock diversions lately. This first pair off the needles has flower bouquet motifs and a woven patterning. Others in the works will continue this year's lace theme, which has only 3 months to go!

Here is Girasole, all completed and blocking on the bed. The king size bed. This thing is huge.

Mom's B-Day Lace Shawl

Here is the lace shawl from VLT that I made for my mom's b-day. I'm a little behind schedule, but at least it is blocking now. Evidently, I made an inadvertent mini mobius strip on one of the short edges with the knit-on edging, but it's centered enough to appear as a sort of design element (at least that's what I'm telling myself!).

All That You Can't Leave Behind

This is all that was left of the original cone of yarn. Note the "bare" spots! Yipes!

Wedding Pillows

I've been busy, but I don't have much to show for it - yet. You will be seeing a lot of finished lace in the coming days, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here are two pillows that I dyed and knit for friends who are getting married next week.
