I was signed up for Sock Wars 3 and just mailed off my first pair of socks to my target yesterday...I, of course, neglected to take a picture of them so we'll have to wait and she if she posts a picture once she recieves them. Once she gets her socks she has to package up the socks she was working on and send them to me to finish for her target. As long as I haven't recieved any socks from my "assassin" I'm still alive and can continue to knit socks. I haven't heard a thing from my assassin so I'm assuming I'm still safe!
I'm also participating in several lace shawl KALs...here's some pics of the works in progress. The Lace Mystery shawl has only had one clue released and it looks like this:
I'm using Jaggerspun Zephyr 2/18 in Daffodil with gold lined clear size 8 beads.
I'm also working on the Mystic Light KAL. It uses fingering weight, which is much different to knit a shawl with than lace weight, but I love the way it's turning out...I'm currently on Clue 3 and the pattern has 5 clue total. I'm using Koigu in a burnt orange colorway (It's supposed to remind you of fire).
My third work in progress is the Slow-Bee Mystery Shawl. It calls for 3000 yds of laceweight yarn and 3000 beads...I'm using Jaggerspun Zephyr 2/24 (I was hoping to keep it from being a queen size blanket!) and I'm not sure I like the fabric I'm getting, but here's a look...I'm only about 1/3 way through the first clue.
That's what I've been up to! I'm going to log projects and stash on Ravelry now too, so if you want you can check me out there...I'm Lknits.
'Til next time!

I've become addicted to lace and lace mystery shawls. My first lace project was the Swallowtail Shawl from Interweave Knits (see pic). I gave the shawl to my sister-in-law for her birthday. I also finished "Swan Lake" from Pink Lemon Twist.
The other KAL's I have on the needles currently are The Mystery Shawl 2008, Mystic Waters, Mystic Light, and Spring Mystery Shawl. The new ones starting soon are Casablanca, Goddess Knits Anniversary Shawl, Slow-Bee Mystery and Slow-Bee Mystery 2.
I will try to be better about blogging and I will find DS#1's digital camera and get some pictures of my WIPs and post soon.
Now I'm going to make a cup of tea, enjoy my very quiet house (all the "boys" are out for the evening) and knit!
See you next time! Laura
