A very busy weekend.........

BossCat made it up to dye up some new stuff for the shop this week-end, and if all goes wells we should be updating the shop next weekend, but we'll announce it officially when we figure it out. I think there's one there I'm keeping for me, okay maybe two.

While her yarns were drying I got some Barn Cat ready for a test drive.  We've had several customers ask about our Chromacolours in sock weight, so were giving it a try. Some turned out okay and some did not, but I'm not giving in yet.
 Here are the first ones I knit up on my CSM, they don't match exactly, but I love them.

And on to my other finished project.  I've had this one done for a little while now and I think it's my favorite shawl so far.
Lattice Shawl by Rose Beck

It's a DK weight so it knits up pretty quick. I loved the yarn so much that I couldn't put it down.
This is knit in Top Cat DK in Leviathan.  I added a few extra rows on the second pattern just so I could use most of the last skein up. It's soft and warm and scrumptious.  Perfect for a cool spring evening.

from a week off work and a little illness seems to do my knitting mojo wonders.  When your stuck on the couch with nothing but the TV or the computer my hands and mind just wanted to knit instead.
Sleeping in and staying up late really agrees with me.  I had several WIP's languishing around here and I was very surprised that I actually picked some up and finished them.
More socks of course....
Patons Stretch Socks for BossCat
Socks for Miss "P"...
and socks for I'm not sure yet, because the two of them have claimed ownership.
Follow the links for all the details on these wonderful yarns on my Ravelry pages.
I have one other project that I finished, but it deserves it's own page, so I'll hold on to it for another day.
I'm back to work in a couple of days so I don't want to waste this knitting time,  my needles are calling.
