Not quite right...


The bread was, shall we say, rather dense. Didn't rise at all. Maybe I should try using yeast (ya think?). The idea was to make authentic sourdough bread, with the starter as the rising agent. But I don't think I'm going to get too wrapped up in that. Next time, I'll use yeast.


Sixth Sense sock can stand up by itself, I kid you not. I'm doing the heel right now, just moving right along.

We had a little road trip today, and I worked on the olive drab socks from the Red Cross kit. I finished the (long, long) legs -- 3" of ribbing and 8" of stockinette, and started the heel flap before we got home.

Saving the best for last, finally a picture of my completely finished and blocked Mystery Shawl 3 (JaggerSpun Zephyr in Peacock)! Sorry about the disembodied hands. The dark area to the left of center is a clump of irises at the edge of the yard. Beyond that, we're growing hay.

Your shawl is beautiful! I am using the copper colour. The Iris at the bottom of the page add such a cheerful note. Thanks for sharing your pics. Oldcrow aka Cathy

I just love how your Mystery Shawl came out. I also love the shade of Zephyr you used. And those flowers are beautiful.
