And there's been knitting too .........

Not much finishing but knitting none the less. Finished one sock for D1 and have the second one ready to turn the heel. Very colorful yarn but I have to say I hate it. D1 saw them and loves the colors (doesn't know they are for her) so I guess that's all that matters.
I've finished one zebra sock and have the second one ready to start the heel flap. I love this Opal Zebra sock yarn. Sooo cool. Adamas Shawl is on the 12th chart of the body. It calls for 14 repeats on the body so I'm getting there. I love the way this is turning out.
And the missing blocking wires arrived separately from the rest of the order. I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to try them out yet.

Plan this week is to get the two finished shawls blocked this week and finish both pair of socks so that I can cast on the
Forest Canopy Shawl designed by Susan Pierce Lawrence. I've decided not to cast on the shawl until I get 4 things finished ..... well that's the plan ...........

Sounds like you've been busy. Can't wait to see the shawl blocked out. Lace looks so much better after it's been blocked. :~)

You'll get it all done. You are a pretty speedy knitter! :)

I love the Adamas Shawl. Green is my color, so anything green is automatically lovely! haha

The socks are great too, especially the black and white striped pair. My Doc would go nuts for a pair of those. LOL

Take care. :)

Look forward to seeing the shawl.
