I knit these two shawls for a silent auction for Choralis, the auditioned chorus I sing with. They both sold, though of course not for what I thought they were worth! I bought this yarn (Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, in Fossil) on one of my June expeditions looking for judges for the fair. I used the gift certificates my office mates gave me on my retirement. The pattern (Currant Cardigan) was from the cover of Interweave's Spring 2013 issue. My current project is a sweater dress from the Vogue Holiday 2012 issue, of Madelientosh Pashmina in a purple called Flashdance. We'll see about that!

I was delighted to learn in the last few days that last winter's oversized sweater now fits much better (and even more delighted since its recipient is still quite delighted by "hop hops" even if she does call them bunnies now). (H: M, what are you thankful for? M: Bunnies! But you cannot pet a bunny. You can only watch them go hippity hop.)
that same expression in a handknit before?
And here's the only new addition: a cocoon for someone who may someday sport the same smile:
this cocoon, and its associated pod (pattern at same link), but they were incredibly quick knits so I was happy to oblige my sister-in-law's request for them. And they do actually seem like they have been super useful for a little one who likes to be cozy and warm. They also gave me a chance to try out Plucky Bulky, which was pretty great.
Since I have actually been knitting quite a bit, I hope to have time to blog about more of it in the near future. (I suppose it would help too if I finished a few things, since I've had a lot of knitting go into two still-unfinished objects.) Anyone have brilliant knitting plans before the New Year?

This is another iteration of the Paulie cardigan although this one managed to go much faster than the last. It's again in Plucky Primo Fingering, colors Childhood Memories (teal); Thornfield Hall (gray); The Hills are Alive (green); and Dandy Lion (yellow). I'm especially thrilled to get to wear something with Dandy Lion since I've loved knitting gifts out of this color but it's not one that usually works for me. More details are on Ravelry.
