Socks AND shawl: Finished!
Well, in a flurry of activity, I got my striped socks finished. And tonight, while hubby was driving us out to dinner, I got the casting off done on my shawl. Here's a picture of the socks...the yarn was a "fortissima" or something to that effect---I don't have the wrapper sock yarn that I bought at the Mannings in January. It was rather thick for sock yarn, I used #5 needles (I stich tightly so it probably called for #4's) and they were the first pair I did on small circulars. Wow. that went quickly! I'm working on another pair already. The shawl is great, very beautiful fiber but I'll get it blocked in the next few days and get a picture up. Sorry it has been so long between postings, glad to say the business is doing pretty well, and certainly keeps me busy...I hope it continues! :)
