Pagans, Pink Socks and Progress

The Pagan Harvest Festival was great. Great weather, nice people and Wandering Cat Yarn was received with enthusiasm (with several knitters who were pleased to see fibre at the show as they were unable to get to the KW Knitters' Fair).

I don't have any pictures because Dave was sick and unable to join me. While other friends did pop by to give me a break, I didn't get much of a chance to leave my booth.

I did however manage to resist the siren song of the Bugga, and finished my pink sock:
I even cast on for the second one. Pattern will be available as soon as I finish it.

Despite his cold, Dave spent most of today in the basement doing something. I'm not entirely sure what, but I have a feeling it has something to do with the building of a doomsday machine. Regardless, it left me plenty of time to knit. So, I set aside the pink sock and finally finished the fan shawl:As you can see, it's blocking now. I can only block half of it at a time. As soon as it's done, I'll take it up to Mom's and get her to take some better pictures of it.

In order to pin it on the board, I had to take off the back of my cardi, which has been blocking since I pinned it there several weeks ago. I'm feeling inspired to do some more work on that, so hopefully I'll have some time this week.

That is if I don't jones too much for the crackghan:But, now the weekend has gone far too quickly, and it's time to go find that boy of mine for a snuggle...

My husband would like the plans for the doomsday machine...

Ooh, the shawl's gorgeous! I can't wait to see the blocked shots. And the socks are pretty, and the crackghan's looking good -- you are a knitting fiend :)

I can`t believe you actually finished the whole shawl, without starting to many other things.
