Knitting Update

I haven’t posted about my knitting in a really long time so here is an update.

I finished these vanilla socks (from the basic sock recipe in Knitting Rules) while watching lots of Battlestar Galactica on maternity leave. The yarn is Trekking Hand Art sock yarn.

I’m currently spending most of my knitting time on this Simple Yet Effective shawl. I need to look for the label of this yarn, but I got it at Maryland Sheep & Wool two years ago. I love the color. The yarn is on the lighter side of fingering weight and is perfect for this shawl.

My current pair of socks is this ribbed pattern from Interweave’s Favorite Socks. The yarn is Knit One Crochet Too Crock-O-Dye sock yarn. I love the gray. These will be super comfy.

I’m not sure what I’ll start next after I finish the shawl. I have the yarns below that I’m itching to use. I don’t know what I want to do with them. Any ideas from my knitterly readers? I got the Jitterbug a few years ago on a trip to Charlottesville with Dan, and the Manos is from a recent sale at a local yarn shop.
