At least I'm in good company. Instead, I finished a scarf for the 12/12/12. Life is full of decisions and compromises. It's all good. I used 330 yards of Cashmerino and a fingering cashmere. This is seriously the softest thing I've ever completed. It's going to keep my snuggling for many years to come.
This pattern is The Go-To Scarf only I've made it striped instead of a solid color. I've used about 100 yards each of three skeins of Lion Brand Jiffy. Two of my labels said 147 yards, and one said 137 yards (that one is a lot smaller now than the other two).
The scarf measures 7 feet long without the tassels, so I wager it's at about 7.5 feet long. I think it qualifies for Team Spirit, Ice Hockey, and Speed Jump.

us 2.25mm needles
beads all the way down the heel flap
and the front to the toes
added extra beads to center lace motif
and modified heel flap to match the toe
(and yes, i have to change my own pattern because i can't help myself)
In a push to finish off the green Gedifra yarn, I also have a nice little Amelia aviator cap. Nice how it matches my shell. The pattern's come out too big for lots of people, but mine is fine. swatch, gauge, adjust pattern
Stash diving is fun, however. I didn't even remember that I had this yarn. This is Panda Soy in Fudge Brownie, on Signature 2.25mm needles. It is a bamboo, soy, nylon mix. At least these needles won't break, although they may not have been the best choice with this yarn, which is somewhat splitty. Hopefully they will be finished in time - if the weather does not get colder and the bus is not too crowded, maybe by the weekend. If not, there go my lunch hours.
Happy knitting, everyone. Regards, aj

I had some panda silk DK and wanted to see it in a shawl. Pardon the pictures as the wind picked up and it started pouring down rain. Thank You Laura for helping out with this one. Pattern is pimpelliese Easy to pattern to do once you chart it out yourself.
The start of the shawl along with the start of a baby blanket. Shawl won out.
Yes this is a long shawl.
Sometimes I do not say No loud enough or fast enough. I was asked to make this vest. I never did say I would but somehow went home with the thread for it. Pattern had to be redone as I did not have the correct cotton thread so the motifs were bigger. But here it is modeled on my neighbor.
I am hoping to have both socks finished by the end of lunch today . . . I guess I'll just skip exercising! Its a sacrifice but I'm willing to do it . . . and besides my sinuses will probably appreciate it too!

Hopfully I will get it done before the Olympics are done. Don't know if I'll get it block but am going to try.

Here's the leg before seaming. I may have shown this before.
I used Zauberball fingering weight, which is 460 yrds/100gm and I had 6 gm left over.
