Works in Progress

Thought that I would do a little show and tell and provide some actual knitting content. I'm almost up to the heel on the second Horcrux sock...the first of three that I plan and this one will be for E. And I was shocked to learn that we have the exact same foot size now. So this means that once he outgrows them...they will be mine.



He opted for the Monarch yarn from Angora Valley that I got when I swapped with Leslie a couple of weeks ago in the Nasturium. Love this yarn!



Then I started a Chevron Scarf, which was originally going to be my step-mother-in-law's birthday gift but now will be my aunt's birthday gift (found her a gift that is more in keeping with her personality...one of those cigar purses). I'm using KnitPicks Memories in Spring Prairie and Rocky Mountain Dusk (which of course went on sale after I placed an order...that's my luck).



I'm right on target with my summer knitting goals...next up the super secret project for my niece's birthday! Oh but first hubby asked me to make booties for another co-worker who is having a baby...thinking I might try my hand at a pair of crochet sneakers.

The Monarch yarn looks so different when it's knitted up! Thanks for posting the pics . . I was really dying to see what it looked like.

The Chevron is more gorgeous than what I had in mind from the colors you were describing to me. Oh, I love it!

We have to get together. I still have to knit. Is this now knitting anorexia??
