Pictures for Saturday

Can you tell that I'm home during daylight hours?

Here are a couple of shots of the Liesl in progress:

I discovered after the fact that the yarn I'm using on the sleeve of the Liesl is from a totally different dye lot than the yarn I used on the body. Even though the band labels said they were from the same one. GRR.

And here are some nice shots of the Simple Things Shawl I made back in December/January. It's Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in colorway Envy. It took just under two skeins.

I'm giving the shawl to its intended recipient tonight (finally) so I figured I should actually photograph it before sending it on its way.

I think I'll be finishing up the Liesl today, and then ripping out and reworking Bruce's sweater. I also have to remember to quit knitting when I get tired. I had to tink about six rows on the Liesl sleeve this morning that I had done last night. Oops.


  1. I love that color green! I hope the recipient enjoys it! So I googled your interesting Virginia suggestions and discovered I had some interesting stuff in my state as well. Any more ideas on Virginia? We are going to be hitting it in a couple of months.

  2. Beautiful shawl in lovely color! Too bad with the colordifferences on Liesl, hope it turns out in a good way.

  3. It's funny, I adore the color of that yarn (of the shawl), but it is so far away from any color I could wear it's not even funny. It was even odd knitting with it because it looked SO BAD next to my skin.

  4. WOw Virginia, when I clicked on the Liesl, it hit me in the eye with its Gorgeousness!! Love that yarn!
    The Simple Things is very pretty too, I'm lovin Green laterly :)

    nice ta meetcha!

  5. Liesl looks lovely, and the shawl looks awesome! I love it's colors.
    When I'm too tired to knit, I'm grabbing my hook and crochet on my giant granny square.

  6. you are a knitting machine! How do you make things so quickly? I'm so envious!:)
