Stuff's Getting Done

The Swallowtail shawl is finished but because of too tight bind off and lack of yarn, I have no points. No points, but little beads where the points should be. This is in Sea Silk.
These make me happy. Knitted in one weekend from half a ball of BMFA Medium sock yarn in a Rare Gems colorway (one of a kind). The pattern is Spirogyra.

This is 80/20 merino/tussah silk from RedRish dyeworks and I'm still workin on it.

This is something I started oh...a few years ago? Yeah, it's the Many Buttoned Vest from Cheryl Oberle's Folk Vests. One of my favorite books. This is the third pattern I'm making from it and that's probably a record for knitting pattern books.
Yeah, just a post to prove I'm not really slacking. Just looks that way.

Ooh! Those mitts are lovely! I love that yarn, too!

The mittens are scrumptious! The pattern reminds me of the Pomatomus sock pattern. And your shawl looks great, even without the points!

Ooh, I like the reaction clicky-dealies, how cool.

You have been so productive! I really need to have a dye day and get your wool back to you, stat!

The fingerless mitts are to die for!! Gorgeous pattern and use of painted yarn.
