On the Needles and Off

The Honeybadger Socks are still on my needles, but I am working my way back toward the second heel and glad to have frogged them both, even though it was painful. A poncho for Sophia just came off my needles! (It appears as if I'm on a blue-green kick lately!) This was a kit from Mary Maxim that included the yarn. (Details on Ravelry) Another time I'd try smaller needles to obtain a firmer fabric. Sewing on the lace was a bit challenging, and it'll be interesting to see how well it fits.

 

The second Blathnat sock is in my knitting bag, waiting patiently. Don't know how much knitting will happen in Minnesota, but I am prepared.



Looks like fun, doesn't it? See ya!
