On the needles

OK, I really should be reporting knitting progress.  And there has been SOME.

I think I might have about 6-8 more rows on the lacy shawl.  Talk about slow progress; that's me on this project.  But, I'm still working at it.  The yarn eventually changes colors...and it will be good when that happens.

A traveling project is a must.  So, I've cast on a pair of socks with Opal cotton sock yarn.  Hey, Dee, I'm using the Dragonfly pattern again.  I really liked the first pair I knitted; it's worth a repeat.  Now I've got a project I can pick up any 'ol time...and the lacy don't-get-distracted project. 


  1. Yay for Dragonfly!!! I love that pattern. :-) The yarn color is really pretty. You'll have some nice summer socks in no time.

  2. What you do is an art; I get so enraptured with the details when I click on your photos! xox

  3. Nice work on the purple shawl! It's perfect for spring. Love the sock yarn, too, and you're right the Dragonfly is a keeper pattern. I have it also, thanks to Dee!

  4. Oh I almost picked purple for my next shawl. Your lace is gorgeous. Cotton sock yarn feels too stiff to me. I need wool even in hot weather. Thats just me!

  5. The Opal cotton blend sock yarn is fun to knit and is perfect for summer.

    Love the shawl and can't wait to see the color change.
