The Last Day of May

Today marks the end of my Birthday month. Thirty is not too bad. I guess.

Here is a picture of my completed Child's First Socks.

This was a super fun pattern to knit. I am a 'Toe-up" person normally, but I plan on making more of these as Birthday presents.

BTW - please ignore the messy desk. Summer at work= messy desk. Don't ask me why.

More blocking adventures! These have been finished for a while, but I needed to find some time to block it all.

These loverly pictures are of my new table runner and placemats. I basically adapted the Branching Out pattern from The yarn is a locally produced yarn called "Summer Spun" from Hopyard Spinnery. It is cotton and silk spun into a lovely, textury yarn. I usually don't like orange, but I figured it is a nice summery dining room color. It reminds me of creamsicles.

My first "real" post

It is really wierd to send your thoughts out into cyberspace for all to see. I'm not even a diary kind of gal. I guess I just want to have a little place in the world to brag.

So I'm going to start.

Presenting my Adamas Shawl, designed by Miriam Felton for KnitPicks. It is made out of 2 skeins of Knitpicks Shadow, Sunset colorway; on #5 needles.

It took me about a month, along with my giant sock project and my lace table runner and placemat project. So I really don't know how much time it took, but it did cause DH to ask when I was going to be done with "that".

I am new at this, obviously, so you'll have to bear with the sideways pics.

I love close ups of lace. It makes me all warm and gooey.

These lovely pics of my feet (eww) are to show off my current "take along" project: Child's first Sock from Nancy Bush's "Knitting Vintage Socks" in Knitpicks Essential, grass Colorway.

Wow. I need a pedicure.

I suppose that is all for now. I'll see if I can get around to taking pictures of all of my Projects from this year. Maybe I can find out how to do some of those nifty graphs that chart your WIP progress.
