More progress on the fair isle socks…
more progress on one of several freeform afghans (I finally separated the pieces & started joining them)
and a new pair of socks, just because I couldn’t resist
really love the quilt on the cover, just classic vintage, ya know?
this is an oldie from 1954
a mccalls from 1965
With no further ado, various things that have caught my interest lately…

Asymmetry in Motion is now published!
This is a very easy, beginner friendly shawl. Design is made sideways, then turned to work the edging, & can be made any size using any yarn / hook / gauge. Shawl can be made any size.
Both the body & the edging is fully charted.
Many thanks to June Gilbank (http://www.planetjune.com) for her tech editing/charting skills. Thanks to colliegrl64, PrincessPa, troubleagain, taraliddicoat, Flametide, pixie56, and Pheebs13 for their test crocheting skills!! And thanks again to pixie56 for coming up with the brilliant name. This pattern would not have been possible without all of you.
Lots to share today!
I finally finished weaving in the yarn ends on these two slip stitch scarves & went outside in 20 degree weather to take a couple of quick photos.
(this one is really skinny; about 2 inches. I think I’ll find a main color & widen this a bit because obviously it won’t keep anyone warm. Once I widen, it’ll get donated)
another skinny slip stitch crochet scarf, but this one is more like 4″ wide. I may widen this one as well, & it will be donated to my usual local homeless vets charity when I finish it.
my last scrunchable scarf, I really enjoyed this pattern & this is the 3rd one I finished (it’s actually the 4th one, but I lost the 4th one somewhere so I’m not counting it)
scraps, also for charity
a better photo of my new design
and a funny comic going around on facebook
Much knitting going on!

My fair isle socks
(my fair isle is really, really sloppy, but I think they’ll be OK once they get blocked on my feet. They fit perfectly, which matters even more)
progress on the Catherine socks
I’ve been crocheting, too, but other than the freeform above, it’s all on stuff I can’t share.
more vintage patterns. Let’s start with an oldie…

Good morning! I finished my granny square afghan that I started making grannies for in Nov or Dec (I still have a pile more to join).
I used various scraps in mainly bright colors & used red as my main joining color, & joined as I went.
This is an edging for a stitch dictionary but I didn’t think to write down where
I also finished a frilly little thing
