Hey - Where'd It Go?

That would be April that I'm talking about... One post from me in April - an all time low! I'll blame it on fiscal year end and being really busy at work and not wanting to look at a computer when I got home. That might also explain why I haven't been doing much blog reading either. I really hope that I haven't miss any big moments in anyone's lives... Once you add in the new computer, things get pretty busy... Oh - and let's not forget a sleepover birthday party with a gang of 9 (or almost) year old boys. Fun? Wow!!! (Actually, they are all good kids, so I have no complaints. Younger Son's friends go to sleep - unlike Older Son's friends...)
Amongst all of that I have been knitting. Although truth be told, some of these FOs go back to March...
First up - The Carribean Seascape Stole. I'd rotate the pics, but I can't figure out how with the new system.



Then we have the Pink Swallowtail. This was a surprisingly quick knit. It isn't really a shawl, more of a shawlette, but the finished object is exponentially more impressive than the effort required. And it is just one skein! I may have to consider making a few more of these for Christmas gifts.






To keep my toes warm, my Seaweed Socks. Why "seaweed"? The colourway is called "Kelp".














For the hands, a pair of Delicato Gloves. I love these! Our mornings are still quite chilly (I've had to scrape the frost off the car within the last week), so fingerless gloves are my current BFF.
For even chillier days, I have my Anemoi Mittens. I bought the pattern for these about 2 years ago. Why I didn't make them sooner, I will never know. I loved knitting them and can't wait to wear them. They aren't an easy knit, but well worth the effort.














I'll try to get a few more details about the projects up on Ravelry. Think that the time has come for the Flickr upgrade...
Happy knitting everyone!

That's a VERY impressive post of FOs. I'm jealous. (Maybe I should cast on for the swallowtail? Easy and fast might be what I need...)

Wow...not sure I could finish all that in a month. I'm lucky to finish anything right now...the end of the school year is crazy here. I hope to see more posts from you.

I don't know where to start! I'm glad you survived the sleep over and fiscal year end (YUK). You know that you have now tempted me to the shawls....all of the FO's are beautiful and I will have to stalk your Ravelry page now... :)
