2 finished projects

Hi all,

Having a nice weekend here. I took some time this weekend to finish up some projects that were hanging out and hanging on... My Janet Lace Shawl (from Knit Picks) and a pair of Monkey Socks from Cookie A, posted on Knitty.

Here is the shawl:
And here are the socks. The fun thing I did with this set of socks was I knit one sock toe up and ran the pattern that way, then I knit the other one regularly, the pattern running the opposite way.. I wish I could have made the pattern more obvious that it is running two ways, but the yarn was a bit busy:
Lucy is getting bigger. Both her ears point up now. She is going to puppy kindergarten this month. So far she is the star of the class, she can sit, lie down, stay and come. She is having a problem with biting but we are still working on it.
I hope you all have had a great weekend and week. I had a busy one; I got a temporary promotion. I will be doing some management time, and helping someone cover my regular job. It is pretty exciting to me because I haven't been at this job very long. I was very honored to get tapped for this so early in my career with this place.
Talk to you all later!


  1. That scarf is beautiful! Wow. Glad to hear you guys are doing well! :)

  2. Gorgeous shawl! What yarn did you use for the socks? I love the color variations in it.

    Congrats on the promotion!!!

  3. The sock yarn was from Joann's, I think it is by Sensations. I really like the color variations, too. They are for my mother-in-law.
