First on this laceweight shawl, Clarus. My original goal was to knit the large size in laceweight, but since I'm on the first repeat of row 53 now, I'm not sure if my patience is going to hold out for that.
Then there's my first knit blanket project.... This is the Hue Shift Afgahan from Knit Picks, and I am really loving how the colors are coming together now that there are a few more squares on the blanket. My original goal was to finish 1-2 squares daily on this, but I think I am really averaging about 4 a week... Oh well, that will still get it finished in less than a year...
In the meantime I've cast on for these socks (no I'm not procrastinating, the yarn was calling to me!)
and have finished up this little beaded necklace.
I still need to finish the last few rows of a teddy bear sweater for my younger son's stocking. Hopefully I get around to that before the 24th.

Are you ready? Christmas will be here in two weeks!
I just got a little holiday knitting finished over the weekend, a Magnolia Crescent Shawl (not going to say for who just in case she's reading this later) and this lovely beaded bracelet/necklace (Ribband by Laura Nelkin). Both were pretty quick knits, about 12 or so hours for the shawl, and about 3 for Ribband, so they've great for gift giving (but I think I'm a little too attached to the sparkly beads to actually give that one away)

- and post a picture to the entry thread in the LMSnS Ravelry group. (Entry thread will be posted to the group on Dec 1st)
Fine print: Project should contain at least 2 oz of LMSnS yarn or fiber (you may add yarn or fiber from other sources as long as at least 2 oz of what is used is from LMSnS), or be made from a LMSnS pattern (one entry per person per pattern please)
At the end of the craft-a-long at least two prizes will be awarded (based on participation, I may add more prizes to the list as we go…)
- $20 gift card for LMSnS.
- Choice of any one LMSnS pattern from Ravelry.
