An Escape to Camelot

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared some of my knitting and cross stitch.  I’ve finished up a couple of things lately, so I figured it was time to share some pictures again.

Monday night, I put the final stitches into Camelot Miniature.  It is a darling little design, stitched almost completely over one.  This is the kind of thing I love to stitch, even though there isn’t much in it beyond simple cross stitches.  It Teresa Wentzler starting making use of speciality stitches like The Victoria Sampler does, I would be in stitching heaven!

I also finished up my lovely purple and blue socks.  I used Panda Cotton to knit them, and honestly I’ve never worked with a more temperamental yarn.  But the finished product is lovely, and I will definitely be using Panda Cotton again.  You can find out more about them on my Ravelry project page: Showy Blueberry-Grapes.

I’m on to my next pair of socks using On Your Toes Bamboo.  I’m slowly working my way through all the sheepless sock yarns.  Only five more mass produced yarns to go!

The Never Ending Blue Shawl of Doom is living up to it’s name.  On Sunday I realized I had made a mistake up near the top of the shawl and I had to rip out a ball and a half of yarn worth of work.  It is hibernating in my knitting bag right now, but I will dig it out before the week is over.  I’m not going to give up on it.

And, lastly, the Baby Man’s jacket has been completely knit.  It just needs to be seamed, which I am aiming to do tomorrow.  I’ve found an awesome book to help me, The Knitter’s Book of Finishing Techniques.  It has totally gone on my wish list!
