What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

Still in Progress:

The Pivot Shawl by FickleKnitter (Michelle Miller)...Frogged, due to general unhappiness with knitting the lace pattern into the body of the shawl. Restarted with a solid main body, to be edged with lace.

Traveling Woman --3rd repeat of Chart A is done. Nothing new on this one.

My Hitchin' a Ride Shawl in crochet, keeping me company as I edit this episode. Goin' like molasses, but very cuddly.

The Holly Holiday Stocking for my twin. I've turned the heel...

Annies Woolens--great for holiday knitting kits and patterns!


My  Noro Kuryon vest. Still on time-out.
