I've also finished the first sock in a pair I've been designing for a while. I was stuck on getting the ankle detail & heel flap just right. I had a lot of knitting time on my trip a couple of weeks ago & got it all worked out. Woot!
I'm almost done with another seaming comission. I've *just* got to weave in ends. Lots of ends.

I whipped up a couple patterns for Curious Creek Serengeti, a hand dyed dk weight superwash merino. The official pattern is the Ríos Locos neck snuggler, shown above. I'm really happy with how it turned out. There's also a matching headband pattern available. The headband makes a really quick gift, and there's enough yardage to give one and keep one. If you make it to Yarndogs this weekend, also keep an eye out for Teri's crochet baby mitt pattern for Canopy, one of my new favorite yarns.

Both times I've knitted this pattern, I've had second thoughts about my gauge starting around the next to last chart. I knew it worked out fine last time, and I knew I was using up slightly less yarn than Cookie with the same yarn and needles. It turned out great of course! Marianne Kinzel's Rose of England Teacloth from her 2nd Book of Modern Lace Knitting. 3 skeins Misti Alpaca Lace, US 6 needles, about 60" diameter. This'll be at Yarndogs for a while. You can say hi to it during the Shop Hop when I'll be in Texas for my husband's 10 year high school reunion. :)
