Off and on the needles

I got in some knitting time this week and a pair of socks is now off my needles.


This is Regia yarn from the Design Line Garden Effects collection. You can see it here. I love the colors in these socks. It reminds me of a desert sunset. This is my basic vanilla stockinette sock with a random row of purls tossed in here and there. I guess that makes it a bit more than vanilla...more like vanilla with a bit of chocolate swirl... yeah that's more like it.

As for the Cladonia shawl it is coming along nicely.


I'm almost up to the lace part but boy are those rows getting long. There will be a total of 228 stitches on the needles when I get to the lace and I'm up to about 200 stitches. Now I need to go root through my stash for some nice green for the contrast trim before the lace.

Happy knitting -
