 Thanks to everyone who came to my Sock Summit Party. It was so much fum to see all those great socks and fiber. Hope everyone who actually went to Sock Summit had a wonderful time. I am so looking forward to reading all the blog posts from those who went.

Now I would imagine with an event like Sock Summit everyone will be on a sock binge for some time. I will still be plugging along on my socks. Since its still one of the best travel buddy and down time knitting projects.













Though my main home knitting will be about the lace. You know I have been itching to knit lace. With so many great patterns out there how do I chose? Well after a trip up north this past weekend it became clear to me that another travel shawl was in order. I had brought Linus (my Stonington Shawl) with me to cover up with if the AC got to be to much for me. Well little man was getting chilly and borrowed Linus. That's when I decided I needed another travel shawl. The great thing about shawls is they can be so lightweight, warm and not take up too much space like a blanket would. Then it came to me I already I had a shawl that was pretty close to completion. When we got back home off to my UFO's I went. Now back from its very long nap. The Pi Shawl is an active wip once again. Its being knit out of KP Shadow lace. The colorway is Lost Lake which is now discontinued.

I am so glad that I put a copy of the lace edge pattern and details notes in the project bag before putting it to sleep. So it will easy to pick up from where I left off.

                                                            Happy Knitting and Spinning!

                                                          Hope everyone has a great week.

You can borrow mine any time you like!

Oh, no! Another book I don't have!

Christina, I was fortunate that the last car we bought has heated seats. I have it on almost all year long if DH is in the car.

Pickle I have that pattern! I think in stockinette would be very nice. That's on my wish list to knit.

The edge pattern is from Barbara Abbey's Knitted Lace. At first I thought of just finishing it there but then I wondered if it would look like I forgot to finish it. I also bounced the idea in my head of a just a plain garter stitch border.

This was my first shawl pattern I cast on. Its knit on US 5.

Christina then you definitely need to knit him a Linus. My little man wants one in red. He is always borrowing mine to cover up when he get chilly. My DH loves the AC too.

Pi are Square shawl linky.  :p  But in stockinette like yours.  I really like that.

Ooooh.  Pretty!  LOVE your border choice.  I think it'd be pretty ended there or with the scallops added.  Very nice.  I like the Pi Shawl a lot, but think I want to make a Pi are Square shawl with heavier weight yarn first instead.  :)  A border could work on it, too!  :)

Sort of mossy and rainforesty!

Oh those are great shawls. I'll have to bookmark those as I'm still wanting to try my hand at a shawl this year.  So, my two-year old nephew's name is LINUS so I think I'll have to make the Stonington Shawl one of these days. Great idea about having a shawl in the car! My hubby likes to crank the AC and after a while I'm shivering in the car and he's just fine. LOL!
