Lots of Started & Finished Projects

I have been so busy knitting that I haven't had the time to take pictures. The past few days I've been busy blocking, so I can finally post some photos.
I am making a scarf for a friend who will be celebrating his 80th birthday in January and frequently travels up north in the winter. This is my traveling project since I don't have to worry about following a pattern or counting rows.
I am currently working on a pair of Happiness Socks. They will be fraternal socks because I am knitting from both the inside and the outside of the ball of yarn at the same time. I finished the Socktober Mystery Socks and they are beautiful. The color in the photo is very washed out; the color is actually a very deep green.
I'm doing several KAL's. The first is the Spitzbergen Shawl. Although the pattern calls for lace weight yarn, I wanted mine to be a bit larger so I am using Jaggerspun Main Line, which is fingering weight, in Teal. The photo is the first 2 clues. The next is the Tulip Shawl, and the photo is the first 10 rows. I am using Jaggerspun Zephyr in Elderberry.
The first photo of finished projects is the Textured Shawl in Silky Merino which was absolutey yummy to work with. Next is the Traveling Woman which knit up very quickly in just 3 days. Next is the Concerto Stole which was a wonderful KAL. I used Jojoland Melody and it was fun to see how the colors developed. The last photo is the Obstacles Baby Afghan in Plymouth Encore (color Wedgewood). I have also finished the Obstacles Baby Blanket but haven't had a chance to take a photo of that one. At the moment it is stretched out on the blocking boards, so perhaps tomorrow....
Whew! I'm glad I finally got caught up with my photography!
