Crossing the Finish Line

At last!  Two finished projects to delcare. 

Although, the projects aren't very exciting, I'm still happy to be able to check a couple items off my WIP list.

I completed this pair of socks at the conclusion of the sock class I was teaching.  I had been working on them along with the class and using them for demonstrations.  Just your traditional top-down socks using the mistake stitch rib.

And here is my Cap for Kids to be donated as part of my registration for the Knitters' Fantasy next month.  Most of the knitting was completed last weekend when I had the pleasure to attend the Spring Fling for knitters.  What a great time!  Knitting, yarn, good company, and good food -- what more do you need for a great getaway?  Thank you to Wooly Wonders Fiber Arts Guild for sponsoring this event.  I've marked my calendar and am looking forward to attending next year.

Back in the Saddle

If there is anyone out there reading this blog, I'm going to make a renewed effort at posting more regularly.  I don't expect to post everyday, but I'm going to shoot for once or twice a week.

I was glued to the Olympics for the duration and am sad that they have come to a close.  It was been a great excuse opportunity to get some knitting done.  

This scarf is the latest project off the needles.  I just have a few ends to weave in and then the final blocking.  It was knit in two pieces from end to middle.  If you look closely near the top of the photo you can see where it was grafted together. 

And here's a closer look at the lace pattern -- vine lace.  A simple pattern, as lace stitches go, allowing me to knit while socializing or watching TV.
