Knit, knit, knit...

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, I've been busy with knitting, re-doing our guest-room, more knitting, working, knitting and so on.

Since we have to finish the guest-room by Friday I'm gonna post after we finish instead of posting pictures now, and focus on knitting instead.

Here is a project I started yesterday, the pattern is Ishbel by Ysolda Teague. I'm knitting it in 3AM Enchantments The One in a color-way that is unnamed as far as I know. It was a gift from Keri at 3AM. I love knitting with this yarn, it feels amazing and knits up beautiful.
I'm using size 6(4.00 mm) circular Signature Needles that are just as amazing as the yarn. I love that the cable swivels in the join, and the stiletto-points are to die for! Most(nearly all) of this shawl has been knit while I've been watching The Knitgirllls pod-cast, it's great and I think I'm addicted :D

Here is my very small progress on Moonfleet by Janine Le Cras and the yarn is Eos from The Unique Sheep in the colorway Wild Parrot.

Next up is a cozy thick sock I'm knitting in preparation for the colder parts of the year. It's knit in Järbo Raggi Aran weight yarn on needles size 6(4.00mm). The pattern is a simple K2P2 rib.

And there is a ankle-sock knit from an unknown brand of yarn, simply sold as undyed yarn from an e-shop. I dyed it my self with Kool-Aid during the Ravelympics. It's a wool/bamboo/silk-blend. The pattern is Tic-Tac-Toes by Wendy Johnson.

And last up of the WIPs are my Norwegian Rose socks in Wollmeise. I love this yarn but haven't felt the knitting-mojo for these socks for a couple of weeks.

I do have a few finished projects as well, one pair of ankle-socks and one pair of mitts knit from Austermann Step.

You are a knitting machine - look at all that stuff! The NR socks look fantastic and I'm totally digging that 3am shawl!

I'm so not a knitting machine, I'm terrible at sticking to a project! And I knit quite slow.
But your videos really helped sped up the center of Ishbel :D
