So Here's some socks I made with Magic Stripes sock yarn. I just ran out of yarn so one is shorter than the other. :rollseyes: THen my candle flame shawl is just about outgrowing these cirs and it looks like it's time to get some 60 inchers going. then I'm almost done with my first toe up sock on Lornas laces. THat whole gusset, heel turning thing is really counter intuitive for me. THanks goodness I met some folks doing toe up at the Yarn Harlot last week so I could actually *see* how to do it. It's like writing with my left hand when I'm naturally a righty. It hurt my brain. I got a bruise on my brain and everything, wanna see?

Thanks for the glowing comments. I :heart: making this shwal. It's just enuf to keep your mind busy but not so hard you want to cut yer head off. It's the perfect meditation. The yarn is SWS in Natural Pinnk. It's so soft and silky it's like knitting with very thin roving mmmmmmmmmmm

Your shawl is BEAUTIFUL .... you HAVE to put the "10 stitch row" edge on it! It really is easy :)

So is it basically just doing garter stitch and picking up one stitch each time you knit to the edge of the shawl?

I love the colors of the second pair of socks you show there. Very bright and interesting. And I love, love, love the colors of the shawl. All of that comes out of one skein? Great! Green is my personal favorite and the pink/white with it gives the overall feeling of a beautiful spring tree in bloom. That is going to look so beautiful in that candle flame pattern. Yes, candle flame, but it could also be leaves. :-)
