Item #1 Diagonal lace shawl
It's a larger version of my first lace project. I'm using Caron Simply Soft again in black. This one didn't block quite as large as I hoped. I still haven't quite figured out blocking yet. The scarf seemed to stretch more than this leaving great open spaces in it. The only difference between the two is that I used a clothing steamer instead of an iron for steam. I'm going to block it again and try just a wet block. I've sent and email off to Caron asking them what the recommended blocking technique is for this yarn.
Item #2 Cascade fixation Socks (for me)
This is my first pair of socks for myself and gods help me I love stripes. It's a ten row stripe which means lots and lots of weaving in. I got some done during the snow storm but the fates and children were against me. I'm going to get back to it. No, really, I am... I need to wear these socks. I just have to finish off a slightly secret project.
Spring is coming and a lot of gardening is looming. Between my lunch breaks and quiet evenings I'm hoping to get quite a bit done this year.
