Coquille KAL -- Tracy Van Wormer

Coco Isle Shawl
--- in Taos #17--- Love the colors, love the feel. I ended up using #8 & #13 needles. (Thought it was a #9, but measured it in the end---to be sure). I ended up doing 3 small gussets, 5 med. gussets, 3 large gussets then 1 x-large gusset for mid line. Started decreases after that.....

Prime time May

The Designer Challenges group on Ravelry posted a challenge for the month of May. Baby, cables and ocean were the keywords.

I have been playing with baby yarn, just for my own fun, and came up with a wee cardigan and two hats. Baby set Atoll (Atoll: ring-shaped island in the ocean)came off the needles yesterday - the only thing left to do is type out the patterns in my notebook. 375 meters were used, as also 5 blue buttons.

May - Finished Rodekool and Sunday Socks WIP

Finished my 1st May project - the Rodekool scarf in Caramel Latte and Brandied Apricots - used about 230 yards together - still not sure how you can get one of these scarves out of just one ball of Mini Mochi! Also, started socks for my Mother - better late than never - as a present for Mother's Day. I already finished the Coquille scarf for her, but she really wants another pair of socks. Making up the Sunday Swing Socks from Knitty Summer 2009. So quick! I started these yesterday early afternoon and finished one already. So here are some pictures!

Completed May Project

I finally finished and blocked the baby afghan I've been working on. It is the Estonian Lullaby pattern, and it took approximately 800 yards of Plymouth Encore yarn. I love the way it turned out.
