Great gift.

It was my birthday in July.  Dds gave me really fun yarn.  It arrived in the post on my actual birthday.   

It's awesome sock yarn.  

I bought 
I don't know if I will ever knit anything from it, but the construction approach is intriguing.   I saw a shop sample a year ago and thought if it was ever on sale....yeah knit picks.    

Fall shawl

I bought this yarn for a different shawl, but there was an error in the pattern.   We'll not the actual pattern, but the materials requirements.   So I didn't have enough yarn.  It was on sale at the time and when I went back there was no more.  So the yarn just sat..until I saw Mirasol.  

My yarn didn't quite fit the pattern, but I think it worked just fine,  

Just in time

Finished dd2 Tardis socks two hours before the debute of the new Dr.Who.

Dd2 is a huge Who fan,  and I really enjoy it as well.  So in honor of the new season with a new Dr.  I ordered us tee shirts.
And I finished her Tardis socks.  
We watched the last two episodes of the old dr. And the first of the new on this otherwise cool and dreary lake day in style.   

And we knit while watching.

Soooo not a farmer.

I guess this wouldn't be an example of sustainable agriculture.  The tomato is about the size of two golf balls.

Finally finished my everyday wrap.  It's a free coco knits pattern.   It is miles of stockinet in lace mohair.    Tedious knitting, lovely finished object.
