Off The Needles!

I finished the shawl.  I absolutely love it.  I know I did not feel this affectionately toward it during my last couple of posts, but it is gorgeous and I am proud of it.  I wish I could show it to you in all of it's awesomeness, but I can't (pesky contracts!) but here is a little taste:

It feels like I have gone weeks without an FO and this weekend I finished two projects!  I also finished the Husbeast's new socks:

I call this pattern, Gitter.  Gitter is the German and Dutch word for lattice.   The Lattice pattern does not photograph as well as it appears in real life.  It really pops off the sock.  This yarn is gorgeous.  It is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in IceHouse.  

These socks have a garter stitch lattice design on the front and back of the leg as well as the top of the foot.  It also features an eye of partridge heel flap (because I love the look of those) and a Kitchener Stitch toe.

I have not decided yet if I will write up this pattern, have it edited and add it to my Ravelry Pattern store.  I will decide over the next few days.

Now that these two projects are off my needles, I am plugging away on a new pair of cotton socks for the Husbeast, one second sock for me that I have been meaning to get done since January and my Cecily Twinset.  

I might cast-on a Hitchhiker Shawl...stay tuned...
