I've been creative

Socks for Soldiers
(Yahoo! Group). Five inches into a 10 inch foot, then the toes and I shall be done with my first pair of socks for this group. In Olive Drab, Regia Stretch, Size 0 and 1 addi turbo needles (two at a time).

Forest Canopy Shawl. My own hand-dyed yarn. Susan Lawrence's pattern ( link) You can find Susan at I'm Knitting As Fast As I Can. This picture shows the shawl still on the needles. I bound off as I watched the season 5 premier of the The Closer. I will present the finished piece for your delight when I have blocked it - hopefully later this week.

I also made two more medicine bags for Shelly's Medicine Bag Project, but failed to take pictures before I packaged them up to send to her. She may have all she needs, but take a look and see if you'd like to participate!

Until next time!

p.s. sorry if the pictures are huge when you click on them... I forgot to adjust them for web-posting.

The socks and shawl are very impressive! I haven't knit socks in a long time. Too long, in fact. I bought some yarn but I'm nervous about it!

I love that shawl! And, I'm so bummed that I wasn't knitting with you when The Closer was on! I totally forgot to check. I guess I can see it in re-runs.

I can't wait to see the finished shawl. The yarn is just beautiful!
