Finished Socks and WIP

I finished by first pair of socks this year and another hat. Here is the picture of my Hedrea Socks by Cookie A. In Dream in Color yarn in the colorway Jungle Cloud. These turned out good I'm going to work through the book Knit. Sock. Love. by Cookie A. I love her patterns and they always provide a challenge to knit.

Midnight Suns Hat by Katherine Rollins. This is a fun and easy pattern to whip up and besides that it looks good. Don't you think? I used Marasol Yarn Tupa it is a blend of 50% Merino Wool and 50% Silk. I like this yarn it is so soft and yummy to knit with.

For my WIP's I have on the needles: Monica's Wedding Veil. I'm using Baruffa Cashwool, 100% Wool. I didn't think I would ever get this cast on, it took for ever but I got it on and am working on it. We picked out two different patterns and have put them together to make this one pi shawl. I hope to have it done by August for the wedding.

Here is sock two out of Cookie A.'s book the Monkey sock I am doing them toe up instead of cuff down. That is the only difference that I'm making. The yarn is from Miss Babs, in here colorway Frog Princess. I just got them started.

I am also starting two more shawls for KAL's, I joined a group called the Light & Dark Lace Club. This group is found on Ravelry. The yarn is being dyed by two of my fav's, Ruth of PennyRose Yarns and Roxanne of Zen Yarn Garden. Ruth is the light and Roxanne is the dark. Ruth with be designing all the patterns and will be coming as a mystery. Now all I have to do is cast on. The other shawl is another mystery shawl for Criminal Minds by Threebagsfull. I have knit another pattern by her and loved knitting it. This one should be fun I got the yarn she was calling for Color Changing Cotton by Wolle's in Nickel Star. I get to work on it every Wednesday during Criminal Minds.
That's about all the work I have going for right now. I think that is more then enough, I do have to get Abby's back on the needles and finish the other half. But I will get to that.
I have been sticking to my diet and am down 25 pounds so far just 15 more to go. I'm determined to look good at all these weddings coming up.
So keep those sicks aclickn'. Happily knitting, Bye.
