Susie finished her Ozukuri Lace Shawl, which found its forever home with the lovely mrsshoo from the In a sKnit video podcast. She also finished the prototype of a shawl she is designing and is calling the Hellebore Shawl. She also started AND finished a new shawl, the Reyna shawl pattern, out of Larkshead Sock 101 (base not listed in Ravelry) in the colorway Vlad.
Danie finished her Holiday Stocking!
Susie finished the first of her Fork in the Road Socks, but hasn’t started the second one because she stole the needles to start a different sock project. She is cruising down the leg of her second Bang Whiz. She slowed down a bit because she thought she might have knit the first one’s foot slightly short, but after several try-ons, she has decided it’s fine and she’s ready to proceed. She also started her Third Birthday Socks, using Another Crafty Girl’s Strong Sock in the I Can Fix It! colorway, and has finished the first and is approaching the heel flap of the second. She started a pair of matching socks for herself using Another Crafty Girl’s Strong Sock in the Spring Peony colorway. She also started a Peekaboo using Berroco Vintage in Azure. She also started a new lace shawl, Anemone, using One Twisted Tree Lace in the Acid Peacock colorway, and it is all she wants to knit on forever.
Danie worked on her Cotton Top, and very narrowly missed putting in armholes. She also added a square to her Stained Glass Sock Blanket. The majority of her knitting time was devoted to her Sugared Violets shawl.
Enhance the Stash
Susie spent a weekend in Illinois, and came home with some Vice Blurred Lines in Teal Deer and Frabjous Fibers Mad Hatter in Sleeping Gryphon and Pennyworth, in addition to the Larkshead Sock 101 in Vlad that she already knit up.
