June Finishes

June zipped by very quickly, didn't it? The month disappears even quicker when you leave town. I did, however, finish two ancient WIPs. Hurray!
These are the Honey Badger socks. You can find the details on Ravelry if you're interested. The second sock is always hard for me, the Procrastinator, to finish, but I am determined to whittle down my WIPs.

This is the first shawl I've made with lace weight yarn. Those hanks last FOREVER! It's quite amazing what a difference blocking makes; it must have doubled in size. Again, the details are on Ravelry.

For the past six months I've been learning new embroidery stitches through TAST. Rather than doing crazy quilting like most of the members, I went into my stash of stuff and decided to work on these Sunbonnet Sue blocks, trying to incorporate the new stitches on that month's block. Here they are, six down and six to go. Happy Fourth of July! And onto block #7 and lots more knitting.

Oh those socks ....they are beautiful. The shawl is lovely too.

But socks --- well, socks have a special place in my heart.

Haven't been inspired to try lace knitting yet, but I sure like those socks. Someday soon I'd like to try something other than plain jane socks!

Your shawl is amazing. Maybe my next shawl will with that yarn. I thought sock yarn was might small. :)
