Weekend WIP's

I tried to stick to current projects this week. I knit some on Crow's Feet Kawkaw sock #2.

And made progress on Cleopatra's Stocking.



I wasn't sure about this sock pattern, but I'm enjoying it. It's mostly stockinette, so it's good TV knitting. Although, I haven't really watched TV the past few weeks since basketball playoffs have been the only thing on at our house!

I've tried to resist, but have been really tempted lately by some lace shawls. And, I've got a couple of colors I love in merino laceweight just sitting there begging to be knit. I gave in last night and cast on Adamas Shawl in this yarn. It's my first triangular shawl, and I was intrigued by the pattern. I just couldn't picture how it was knit from the neck down by casting on 5 stitches. I get it now!

I love your socks --i'm at about the same spot on my sock too. I got a little distracted and cast on 2 shawls on Saturday --both are the same pattern the Wild West Lace Shawl... I had one yarn that I've always wanted to knit up but not sure abou the texture... hence the second instance of the same shawl:)

I love your pretty green one - Looks really nice so far...
