Besides the socks for my sister, I am also working on a shawl. I had about six skeins of Microspun left over from an earlier knitting incarnation. I've become a total snob since I bought it, but it is soft. The only real problem is that the yarn splits so much. In any event, I am using a Trinity stitch and will see if I have enough to make it wearable.

So it's been awhile. I could say that I've been busy, but the reality is that I've been lazy, and I don't actually think anyone is reading this, so I suspect no one has noticed.
In any event, I am now on my third pair of socks. The first two are mine, but these are for my sister Bonnie. I am just using a simple pattern with and inch and a half of ribbing and then stockinette stitch. Next pair I will try something a bit more exciting.
I also knit a vest for my mother and a little dress for my niece. The vest was an Olympics project and the dress is Project Spectrum April. I think it's pretty cute.
