socks off, socks on

Donna's socks are done! They are the "Mermaid Lagoon" color of Imagination sock yarn.

It's more purply than the pictures show, very pretty. And I think there might be just enough extra left over for a pair of toddler socks for Sophie.... :)

And there's new socks on the needles already. This one looks like it's nearly done, but it's actually for my dad and has a long way to go still. It's working up super fast in worsted weight Fisherman's Wool and size 6 needles. They will be warm - and soft and squishy too. I might need to make myself a pair of these this winter.

Here I am last night, enjoying summer still - what's better than knitting in front of the fire??

I was working on my Hemlock Ring Blanket. I'm almost done with the first ball of yarn - Eco Wool - and I think when it runs out I'll put it on scrap yarn and lay it out flat... I can't wait to see the lace stretched out!
