wip update

Yesterday, while the boys were napping, I picked up the embossed leaves sock and started on the lace pattern. I could not put it down. What a simple and beautiful pattern. The yarn colours are so pretty too.

I have worked a good bit the past week on the log cabin blanket. You can see the different dye lot colours really clearly in this picture - even better than in real life! They definitely need to be mixed up a bit. I love the overall effect though - the texture and the colours too.

I have worked a little bit on Clapotis too. I dropped the third stitch. I can see already that it will need a really good blocking to straighten it out and pretty it up too.
And what the heck is this mess'o'crap, I hear you say. Tune in tomorrow folks for the finished product. It's for a one-year-old. It will be cute :-)

I love the color for of the socks. It's so great!

The blanket is nice. The color change seems to give it more texture.
