While I am waiting

For the yarn for Eris to arrive from Knit Picks, I have finished and started a couple of projects. I finished the One Skein Wonder shrug. I really liked the way it turned out. The colors are gorgeous. Now it just needs to cool down a little so I can wear it.

Pattern: One Skein Wonder

Yarn: Noro Silk Garden 87

Gauge: 4 sts / inch

Needles: US 8 and 7 circulars 24 inch

Kudos to those folk that manage to take normal looking pictures of themselves in the mirror! Well maybe if I brushed my hair before snapping a photo I could do better? Hmmm...

I am still working on the purse stitch poncho from IW fall by Meema Spadola. I am not in love with it, I just want to use up this yarn. I hate it. LB Suede sucks. It will make a nice xmas present though.

I decided that given where I live I really need to stock up on wool socks for winter, but I wanted to start on something new. So I am doing these socks in a very pretty blue in fingering weight wool. The pattern has cables (boring ones but...) and a short row heel. Woohoo! This should be interesting.
