Sadly, it isn't my Painted Desert Shawl. That still needs blocking. And I have yet to find a spot in this house large enough and undisturbed enough to pin it out... I'm working on that. Really.
Instead, I have one finished pair of Christmas present socks. These are for my sweet Little Miss. And the only reason I can post this picture is that she never, ever reads my blog. Well, that and she already knows she's getting them, because they were a special request, she picked out the yarn herself, and then she watched me working on them.
Yarn Harlot's blog, that stands for Second Sock Syndrome. And you should totally read her blog- hilarious!) Not that I would know for sure, seeing as this is my very first ever non-infant sized pair of socks ever completed. (We will not be discussing any unfinished, unmatched, or half finished pairs that may or may not have existed. Just, no.)
This one, I admit, I only bought when I saw the name of it. The yarn is Paca Peds HT, and the color is (get this) Frog & Piggy. Doesn't that just scream Muppets? I love it! Of course, I had to look up the proper name because I've been thinking of it as Kermit and Miss Piggy ever since I picked it up and saw the label...
All of that is about to go on hold for a bit, though. Tomorrow is the last of July. That means that Camp Loopy Challenge 3 is about to start. As of Friday morning, I will be dropping everything else for as long as it takes me to finish Maple Leaf Knit Shawl. Or until August 31st. Whichever comes first.
Which gives me time to read through the pattern (I hope). And, tonight, if I don't fall asleep first, I'm going to knit my test swatch to try and get gauge. So, this lovely will be my company for the next hour or so. :)
