Knitted-on Border in Progress
Originally uploaded by Buxtrosion. Finally made it to the border of the Myrtle Leaf Shawl. I've since rounded the first corner (twice- I miscounted and wasn't happy with the fudging that ensued).

For the observant out there- yes, I'm using the Options needle tips with no cords. It's back and forth, so there's no need for real DPNs.

Originally uploaded by Buxtrosion. I've been wanting to try knitting with hemp for a while, and this was on sale cheap! I'd really like to try Hempathy, though.

PRGE Gift 2!
Originally uploaded by Buxtrosion. I got 2 awesome books in my second Punk Rock Gift Exchange gift.
I've flipped through Arctic Lace, and it's so much more than a pattern book!

I'm really excited about sharing the project I've been working on for months. (It's a gift). I've been taking tons of photos and I should be able to post them by Monday!
