Knitting triad

It's a grey and gloomy Sunday, and thanks to another trip to the doctor, my itches have settled down considerably (yay for modern science!). Seems like the perfect day for knitting.

I  actually got a fair bit accomplished on Friday after visiting to the doctor. I was able to harness my mojo and finish the Dragonfly socks.
These are knit in House Cat, in Aurora. They are blocking now, but will soon be tucked away in the Christmas box.

Since I had no socks on the needles, I started a new pair for myself.

These are the Lotus Heart Socks - they are suppose to be full-length, but as soon as I finished that leafy border, I knew they had to be frilly girly ankle socks. I've already turned the heel on the first one. These are knit in my absolute favourite Alley Cat Falkland. It's so nice to knit with. The colour is a nice bright spring green with a touch of yellow, called Frog Prince.

And, just to mix things up - I've dived into upsizing the Silver Cardigan so I can have one too!

I dove deep into the stash for this one, and pulled out some Debbie Bliss Pure Silk. I'm just winging it, so I hope it will work out. It's slow going at the moment, but once I've got the sleeves on holders it will pick up a bit.

So... I guess I better get to it

Happy to hear you are on the other side of the itchies.
Love the knitting, finished and in progress. I still can't find my mojo. It's still too blankety-blank hot here.

Pretty, pretty dragonflies! It's taking all my self-control NOT to cast on my Lotus Heart socks before July 21st. STOP TEMPTING ME!

Glad you're feeling better. I know what you mean about needing to be ankle socks; I have a skein of bright yellow that has already told me it will be ankle socks, no matter what I might think!

Ugghh itchin is awful! Very cool socks, I think you're right with the frilly ankle socks!
