Ode to Heather

...because she can't get enough of my blog...this one is for you, Boo.

I know I have been slacking off on the blog. What can I blame it on...heat, humidity, nasty neighbors, too much yarn. Nah, let's just call it what it is, laziness.

So, here is what I've been up to:
Koigu Scraps I scored at Knitorama becoming socks

Gus poses with the sock
Yeah, one down, one to go

The North Sea Shawl, 2/3 done!
though I think I'm going to add a few repeats to the center panel
...if Maggie would stop eating the Zephyr!

Finally, my current project; the "simple" shaped shawl I'm desiging for/as a result of class. This is a swatch of Anne that I scored from EBAY. I love the colors. I'm calling my shawl the "Feather and F'anne Half Pi Shawl," I.E. a half circle of feather and fan in Anne. I'm so witty!

Here I've swatched the bottom of the swatch in 5's and the top in 4's. I'm going to go with the fives. I need to consult my sensi (Grace) regarding the numbers at the beginning and incorporating/centering the lace pattern after each repeat...but I SORT OF get it...
