I have made a realization....

I like DPNs...who knew? I switch my LSU sock (one of the 2 I have started) to teeny tiny DPNs and find myself flying on them. I'm sure the total of 7 hours I spent on planes within the last month didn't hurt either, but I'm saying it's the DPNs magic. I also find that I am now more consistent in my stitches. You can definitely tell where I changed needles, but I can live with that. I just want them on my feet.

(this was before I switched over, now I've turned the heel ,and have a little bit of the leg knitted since switching)

I have made a decision...I am completely done attempting to work on the giraffe! I am going to make something else for my friend. I'm currently thinking a blanket, bu we will see. I am planning a baby blanket for another friend and an octopus for my sister-in-law that is pregnant.

My shawl is coming along well. I have finished on pattern repeat. I have no idea if I can manage to do a total of 4 repeats before I loose my mind, but long enough to make it useful is all I need. I love the play of the yellow, green, and grey of the alpaca. This pic was before the repeat was finished, but it's not all that much bigger now.

Well, back to watching the Olympics for me...
