What Have I Been Up To?

Well, let me tell you!

Last weekend the Mr. was out of town, and I had grand cleaning and knitting plans. The cleaning went pretty well, but I wont take photos of my entry way to show you how nice and clean it looks now :) What I will show you is how far I got on my knitting projects!

First is the big guy, the Moderne Log Cabin Blanket. I have't given this a ton of love, but I still really like it.

Umm, cat unintentionally added for scale? You can tell he snuck in there pretty quick because he is a little blurry :)

Next are the two shawls. First up is the Rousette Shawl for my friend's wedding. This one doesn't look like I did much, but I'm more than half done with the stockinette portion.
Wow, photo fail today. Please excuse my finger :)

Nest is the 22.5 degrees shawl. This has gotten the most love as it is more than half done. Since this is for Camp Loopy it needs to be finished by June 27th to count, so I've been trying to finish it up!
This is a really wide, shallow shawl so its getting really bunched up on the needles, so sorry about that. It looks kinda like a big blob :)

Lastly, I have a sad story. I'm pretty new to sock knitting, but this last pair I cast on was going really well. They were going really fast, I was loving the pattern, loving the yarn, and was finally feeling like I was a real sock knitter! I turned the heel and was at the point where I need to start knitting in the round again, and disaster struck.
I had a spaz moment and a few stitches dropped off the end of my needle. I tried picking them back up three different times but since it was the heel there are decreases and slipped stitches and it just wasn't working. I got all the loose stitches picked up but now there is a hole. After chatting it over with some friends I have decided to leave it and go back later and patch it up with duplicate stitch.
Other than the hole I still like these socks and plan to finish them by the end of the month. Maybe my third pair of socks will be the charm!
