What have I been up to?

Entirely too much, and nothing all at the same time. As per usual, there has been some knitting, with very little in the way of life to supplement it. I'm in a race against time to compete in Sock Showdown, a little contest in the Completely Pointless and Arbitrary Swap Group on Ravelry, knit a shawl for someone else in said group, knit a pair of Anglo-Saxon--looking socks for Melisande by Pennsic, and finish a Mary Poppins themed swap package by the end of July. And all I really want to do is knit for me. Selfish, aren't I?

Pictures you say? Here are a few:

A Sagrantino Shawl slowly being knit up in Jojoland Melody Superwash. I love the construction and watching the colors change.

The completed Sock Showdown socks for my partner, whose name I will not divulge yet. Made in overdyed Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet.

And finally, some socks I started in January and only recently finished. Shur'tugal in Dream in Color Smooshy in Black Parade. Love the yarn and the pattern, but I knit them a little too short for me. Will probably go to my sister for Christmas.

And that's all for now, folks!

P.S. I will be moving to Cincinnati in August. I am quietly freaking out. That is all.
