Back again

Hi there

It's been a while since I posted anything on here but I haven't been idle. Projects completed include:

Serendipity socks from the Socks that Rock sock club - January - STR lightweight

Tangled Yoke cardigan from Interweave Knits Fall 2007 in Naturally Yarns Harmony 8 ply.

Leafling socks, Socks that rock sock club - March STR mediumweight
and Salvia from Knitter's magazine No.86, made with Yarn Bee, Hues of Opulence #088 - not quite finished. I'm just working on the i-cord which finishes the fronts.
I joined the Dream-in-Color classy KAL with the The Loopy Groupies on Ravelry and am making Bristow using the Blue Lagoon colourway. Here are the sleeves which look as though they could be pants - done on one circular in the round up to the armhole. A bit tricky at the armhole but okay.

I am also making a scarf in white tencel/acrylic ( Moda Vera Jaclyn) for my DD because she says wool makes her itch. The stitch pattern is Close-woven basket lattice from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G Walker. Still have 4 balls of yarn to go and quite slow knitting. Hope she wears it.

I have also joined the Rowanette exchange this year and have cast on for my exchange gift but that's a secret.
