Strawberry Surprise

Finished and blocked the Strawberry Shawl ("Vernal Equinox" by Wendy Johnson).  I think it came out wonderfully. The actual yarn has more black in it and is very deep & rich.

January Knitting

There has been so much knitting already this year.  I am still finishing up Amy's Equinox and am in the home stretch.  I think there will be enough yarn, but it has been a real knuckle biter.

I started a hat out of MadTosh and Shibuiknits Silk Cloud - still on the ribbing.   I am a little concerned it will be too small for my head, but ribbing is stretchy, right? The pattern is Green Tea Latte and is free!  It is my Loopy Challenge for January. Colors are Grasshopper & Lumen.

Next on the needles is a Kalajoki with Mountain Colors Bearfoot (colorway Yellowstone).  I have been longing to make socks again and it feels good to have one on the needles.  I really like the pattern as it is just tricky enough to keep things interesting, but not all over patterning.  

Sideways pictures YAY!
