I'm still knitting, honest

When I was up North bank holiday weekend, I took some socks with me. I managed to finish one of these in 24 hours (not that I had a lot of sitting around waiting !!)

Noro sock yarn is a lot nicer than I thought, but where is the pink ?








Next : whilst away I also finished this Danish Wrap shawl.
Made in Jitterbug, it went on for ages, and after getting it wet at Chester Zoo it grew...

It now ties round me twice !!
This is folded in half then half again...







And ties round a chair...

I think it is destined to adorn someone else who is a lot taller than me :-(















And the main thing I have been knitting recently

Murder by lace round three

It took about 30 hours of knitting

Made of two charts, work chart 1, then chart 2, and chart 1 again. I worked the second chart 1 in reverse, not sure if that was the right thing to do or not...

I will be wearing it at the I Knit day on Saturday. I'm going to be a free agent so wandering round, do come and say hello..
(Rosie and Daffy are making a final show appearance on the KCG stand, I've just found out that Rosie is on the fliers for the show !!)

Love those Noro socks - but I'm still not convnced that it'd be soft enough!

Is that the Noro you bought when we were in Malvern? It's knitted beautifully :-)

I'm sorry about the Jitterbug shawl, I suppose that's garter stitch for you but still.........

I hope to bump into you on Saturday.

Lovely coloured socks, I shall have to investigate Noro's sock yarn further, I think ;)

Your mattress post made me laugh. I have one blocking the landing that's been there for a week now!

I have puzzled over it for years but I think Ihave it figured out now. You have discovered some devousway of doubling time, you have 48 hour days (or maybe you don't sleep?) There can be no other explanation for just how much knitting you seem to get through. And not little things either!
Nice to see you in the Amazing Lace Swap BTW
