I'm back!

I'm back, and I've got a bunch of projects to show off!

First up: another wee tiny sock for the follow-up swap. The first one was so much fun that I figured I'd join the second one on Ravelry. I'm going to collect all these wee tiny socks for our Christmas tree this year.

Then there's a pinwheel baby blanket for a co-worker's new baby, due in July. (Yes, I'm early for once!) This was my Ravelry-surfing project. Miles and miles of stockinette with the occasional yarn-over. I think it was over 400 stitches around by the time I was done. The bad news: my brother wants another one for his second kid, due in September.

And finally, the piece de résistance: my new Kiri shawl from the Colourmart silk that Dotty destashed a few months ago. It really was a fast knit: about two weeks of commuting time, start to finish. (Yes, I knit lace on the SkyTrain, but I have a long commute, and this is an easy pattern.)

And here's my little helper who helped me pin everything down to his alphabet foam blocks.

Now I can't decide what to cast on next. I'm now addicted to lace, but I also want to start my Christmas gift knitting so that I'm not doing it all in November.

I like the pinwheel blanket. I'll be making a few in the next little while. The shawl turned out great.
