New knitting projects and a finished one

I bought this Pagewood Farms Yukon sock yarn back in 2008. They are just plain cuff down stockinette with a Band Heel. I finished the first one rather quickly and the second one was started and mostly done as well. Then......I made an error in the toe decrease and it bound my foot too tight. So I frogged the 2nd sock back to the start of the decrease and put the socks in time out. I would open the bag from time to time and say "nope, not today". Well, I finally decided to finish them so I took them with me to knit night on Thursday, got them all the way to kitchener time. I did the kitchener on Friday morning, then washed and blocked, now they are ready to wear. Why did I take so long? who knows!

As for new knitting projects, I will be doing a Shawl-a-long with my knitsib Christina. We will be doing the Pie Wedge Shawl from Lorna's Laces. (Rav Link) I'm using the Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace yarn and it's so lightweight it's going to be fabulous. This is what I'll be using for the Pie Wedge.

I will also be casting on for the Summer Flies Shawl using my own handspun.

As for the Tour de Fleece, my first braid of 4 oz is almost done. I am spinning a little everyday as is required and I'm spinning the single a little thicker from what I normally spin. Maybe I'll end up with a worsted weight rather than my usual fingering to sport weight. This is a sample of the first bobbin and all the different color variations this single fiber has. I love it.

That's it for now. I'm off to cast-on.
