Some Finished Objects

My second Summer of Socks 08 Pair:
Pattern: Blueberry Waffle Socks
Yarn: Zen String Serendipity Sport, Summertime Rolls colorway
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony, size 4, 24" circulars

These came out a little large for me, so I'll either find someone they fit or send them to the next afghans for Afghans campaign, which has a fall due date.

Pattern: Wave and Shell Shawl
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Merino DK
Needles: Lantern Moon Rosewood 24" circular, size 8

I made this for the afghans for Afghans rectangle shawl campaign for new mothers. Volunteer doctors in the newborn hospital in Kabul asked for shawls for their patients. It is heartwarming to think of a new mother keeping warm in my shawl as she cares for her baby in such a wartorn part of the world.

Pattern: Printed Silk Cardigan
from Spring 2008 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Knit Picks CotLin, Island Coral Colorway
Needles: Knit Picks Options, 24" circular, size 3 and 1

I liked this pattern when I saw it, and was happy to join a knitalong on Ravelry in April. Seeing some finished sweaters and reading others' tips and experiences (even comments and help from the designer, which was cool) made this project move right along. I think it came out pretty well.

I have two or three more socks in progress for Summer of Socks, so we'll see which gets done first.
