Just finished the Flacon doily from the Yarnover site. I did it in an evening including the blocking. I used my mother's old recipe of sugar and water to starch it.

Made this shawl for my sister out of worsted weight and 8mm needles. I started at the top and included shoulder shaping and a gusset. It is nice and roomy and she tells me it stays on very well.

I had enough Kroy of the same colour to make a vest. It is just the ticket for these cool mornings and evening. My own design with Paton's Kroy, 3.25 mm needles.

Exam supervision means extra socks. Although all knitting is saytisfying, there is something special about a pair of nice warm socks. Happy feet mean a happy me.

Jedward led me to a site called Yarnover where I found this pattern. I used #6 cotton made here in Mexico and 3.25mm needles. It was a fun and fast project.

Just finished a v-neck pullover that will have to wait until the fall to be worn. I used Briggs and Little Regal wool and 4.5mm needles.

Mes Swansen, in "A Gathering of Lace", describes how she hangs a shawl with a sideways knitted on garter stitch border over a 4" dowel suspended between two cupboards to block it.
