This one's for you Ada!!

I couldn't sleep (surprise, surprise!) so I went surfing around the knit blogs and came upon this:

Your Inner European is Dutch!

Open minded and tolerant.

You're up for just about anything.

Who's Your Inner European?

On the knitting front I'm making good progress on both my shawl and the Regia Jubilee sock but they are not worthy of another pic just yet so I bring two recently completed projects.

From January to March of this year, Alison of
The Blue Blog hosted the first Sockapalooza. This was a fun sock exchange with over 100 participants from across the globe!
You were sworn to secrecy and provided with minimal information about your pal, mainly size info, color/style preference and location. My pal was Helga, a German ex-pat living in San Francisco.
Here are the socks I sent Helga:

They are my own design of feather and fan stitch interspersed with wavy rows of garter stitch. I used 2 shades of Wildfoote fingering weight sock yarn which as I already stated, I really don't like...too twisty and splitty!! Helga liked the socks and coincidently, she told me Wildfoote is one of her *favorite* sock yarns! One knitter's nightmare is another knitter's dream, right? heheh....I can't WAIT for Sockapalooza Two!!

Here is another recently completed project and one of my favorites!!
This is the Leaf Lace Shawl designed by Evelyn Clark for Fiber Trends. This was a perfectly written pattern and a fun and interesting knit!! One thing that makes this pattern so special is it's written for 2 sizes in four weights of yarn so it gives you lots of options!!
I used 5.5 skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in the colorway Neon and I knit the large size as well as adding one extra pattern repeat. I adore Lorna's Laces sport weight yarn, so soft and easy to knit with and this shawl just makes me smile!

Happy weekend, and Happy Mother's Day!!

It says that I'm Italian. Hmmmm. I wonder if my birth name of "Coniglio" has anything to do with that. Yup, I'm a wap!

That shawl is so beautiful. I love the colors but I'm so taken by the intricate pattern. Great job.

I got Hubby Tech Support to look into my problem with Net News Wire...apparently I needed to update to the newest version. So...problem solved and I have successfully "subscribed" to your blog.

Lovely job on the shawl. I bought that pattern a little while back at the TKGA national, but haven't dared to attempt it yet. Being as I had never had experience with lace before. I recently took a class for lace and am working on the class shawl. This one is next on my list as I bought some worsted to make it with.
