I made a pair of socks. They aren't anything special, just worsted weight for warmth, Caron acrylic, sensible grey. I have put off making socks since I started knitting in 2010, but now I have overcome that hurdle. They aren't my best work, but I'm proud that I finished them both and they fit! Maybe I'll even get brave enough to use sock yarn one of these days.
Lucy has ask me to pass along to MWK that she now has an on line tuition with Craftsy.com. Its launch was on this past Wed and is available for half price. She is teaching the ins and outs of Double Knitting in this Tutorial. Have a look and let Lucy know what you think.
Here are some photos of the man-shawl I just finished last week -- Earth & Sky by Stephen West. Knitted up on size 6 circulars with DK weight Shepherd's Wool (Seabreeze, Frosty Blue, and White).

I'm new to this site. I learned to crochet years ago, but haven't in a long time. Started knitting a few years ago, but quit after maybe a year because of hand problems. Picked it up again last fall, and now seem to be addicted. Not looking for a cure. Mostly knitting socks, lately.
