I started this in May and stopped to knit another Oz shawl, hat for Andrew and socks and 2 cowls for Cheryl. This is just the incentive I need to get back to this. I figure I was at about 30% finished here. Miss Bab's yummy 3 ply sock she says is sport weight. Great yarn and fun pattern.
I also have 3 single socks that need mates I'd like to knit during this time. Not one of them is started yet. Adrienne's Rainbow, Sox on the Beach and a Jeeves for Fred. We'll see how long the discipline lasts. :)
note to debi: and no, i haven't counted how many "one" socks i have in my collection!
if you are interested, please leave a comment.

I also started and finished a pair of plain vanilla socks using a yarn from Twisted Fiber Arts – it’s the Ravelry colorway and it’s a base called Shiny – half merino and half Tencel- the yarn really is shiny! I used about 400 yards for these socks.
I finished March Mosaic Socks – the design’s by Wendy Johnson. It’s the March offering from the Loopy Ewe’s sock of the month club this year. The yarn is Fiesta Yarns Baby Boom. I used about 400 yards for this project also.
Since I’ve finished all my sweaters that were OTN, I started two new ones! I started the Tulip Cardigan a couple of weeks ago and it’s slow going because it’s using fingering weight yarn with 3.0 mm needles. I’m using Wollmeise 100% Pinie for the base. Everyday I try to do a few rows.
I also started Myrtle Cardigan by Snowden Becker. It’s so much fun – it’s all lace work. I’m making this in Wollmeise 100%- colorway is Lila Ludmilla
I’m also well underway with a pair of socks by Adrienne Fong called Dewdrops. The first sock is done – like all her patterns, they seem to just fly off the needles. The yarn is Pagewood Farm – St. Elias – in the watermelon colorway which I believe was dyed for theknitter.com’s sock of the month club. I continue loving this club – I do the every other month luxury club. I likely will use around 400 yards for this project.
I also started a pair of Vesper wee skein socks – they’re kind of intriguing. The wee skein kits have 4 skeins of her self-striping yarn that you can knit together anyway you choose. Very fun! I'll post pictures of these and the two sweaters later on.
Edited on Wednesday, June 2 to include WIP pictures!
I love this shawl!!!
I've made progress on the socks for DH. The pattern is from The Unique Sheep Ram Club and had a number of problems. I've been in communication with the designer. The kit included 4 yarns in progressively darker shades of brown.
