Lace and Colorwork Wimple, a pattern by Annie Modesitt, from the book 'Successful Lace Knitting' (Donna Druchunas).
This was a very enjoyable project! The yarn, Plymouth Dye for Me Dancing Toes, is an alpaca/merino blend which I dyed. The brown and cream colours are from onion skins, while the coral and green are from food paste.
Yarn yardage: 672 yards/176 grams
And I finished up my first towel in the moss grid stitch pattern. I used 285 yards of cotton yarn.

I'm still working on Monica's wedding veil. It's a slow process I'm at 588 stitch's and each round takes me to long so I don't work all that hard on it. But I will get it done and the 4 other wraps that have to be done this year. Just thought I would give up update pictures on it.
I am using Cascade 220 superwash for these socks and a size 3 needle so they should go fairly fast but we will see. I have to work on that shawl. So till next month hopefully I'll make it a little sooner.
Happily knitting, Bye.

The lace cowl, Lara, is such a lovely thing! It's always nice when something simple is also easy on the eye! I knit it using an alpaca/silk/cashmere blend, so it is scrumptiously soft!
406 yards/93 grams, on US5/3.75mm needles.

|Very Girly Pretty Rose Thing in Lost City Knits Merino/Angora|
Cloisters by MimKnits is coming along as well. It's a smooth, but not challenging knit, which is a nice change of pace from my usual choices.

By them selves, they are not enough yardage. Then I remembered the KAL on Ravelry. We did/are doing a two color brioche scarf from Knitty called Rodekool. Yarn called for is CPY Mini Mochi.
I ran short on yarn, frogged back, still was a little short, was able to get yarn from someone else, and I finished about January 30 for the final time. 195 yards of yarn.
Yarn: CPY Mini Mochi in Neptune Rainbow
Needles: US #5/3.75 mm
Originally, I had bought another yarn, because I don't have local access to Mini Mochi. Decision was made to knit the scarf in that yarn also. I'm not sure who will wear the scarf, it may become a gift. One yarn is Jojoland Melody superwash. The other is Aussi Sock. The pattern is tricky, so I decided to knit it again while I remembered the tricks.
