Finistis Strikes Again!

And there was sewing this past weekend, too, but I'll hold off on all of that for a bit...

I promised blocked shots of Boing!
Here she is as a "little nothing" neck warmer - if you haven't checked out Anne's collection of these you really must, this was a delight to knit (even if it did take me awhile, it wasn't the pattern, it was me).
and here as just a little something over your head when the wind blows and it's a bit on the chilly side. (Notice I took these inside with Karen's lovely gift - the mannequin I now call "Karen" in her honor, rather than outside? You would not be able to see the little nothing, it would be coated with pollen had I taken it outside!)
The yarn is a yummy Zen Yarn Garden merino. Very very soft...knit on my Harmony size 4, 16-inch circulars. I began this last May, 2008, and thanks to Rainy's Basket of Shame KAL, I finally got the motivation to complete it. But don't let that reflect on the pattern at all, I'm notoriously fickle. Finished size is approximately 51 inches x 12 inches (I did an extra repeat of the pattern).

Here's a closeup:

Oh. And I finished my Personal Sock Club April selection - my Socks That Rock Scottish Highlands colorway. Plain vanilla, with a 2x2 rib at the cuff, on size 1.5 KP Options. (April 1 - 26 to complete) what to knit? What to knit? I know, Sock Summit Barn Raising Quilt blocks! The quilts will be raffled or auctioned off for Doctors Without Borders...and I've promised two squares. Gotta get busy as the deadline is June 9.

Oh, and then? Mini socks to swap with folks at the Summit! I don't have much to do...

I love how Boing turned out.. the perfect spring accessory. Who needs to make goofy sweaters when you can look so glamorous in this?

Oh, hello! Boing looks absolutely perfect on your fetching redhead. I rilly like your STR footwear, as well.

Nicely done, Sallee. BTW, my father and his mother were both auburn-haired. I'd forgotten about that.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
