so many wips!!

 Someone was thinking of me. My sister was working in a furniture store in NY and they were getting rid of this duvet set. She thought of me and now I have this lovely duvet in my room. Since then she has been promoted to manager of a store in NJ. (^_^)
 Ok here are all of the projects I am working on right now. First is the Ginkgo shoulderette shawl. I started this shawl just to have some thing easy to knit on my break at work and in the car. The yarn is some of my hand spun from my stash. I have fourteen more rows and then I start the lace edging. Second are the Pop-out Penguin socks. I'm knitting both flat until I finish the intarsia and then I will knit them both at the same time using magic loop technique. The second sock is at the point where I start knitting the flippers. Once I finish the heals these will be a take a long project and will basically be straight knitting from  that point on.  
 Third. This project has been hanging around for while. I really love it and even though the yarn isn't the best, it's very soft and the subtle color change is really nice. Once I finish one of the other projects I will work on this again.
 Fourth. This was supposed to be a quickie carry along project. I do carry it around and work a few rows now and again. The yarn is odd to knit with and I have to knit English style which to me is tedious and slow, but I will continue to work on it here and there. So this is my here and there project that will eventually get finished and become a gift. There is a lot to keep me busy and soon a friend at work is going to have a baby shower so time to start looking at a few things to whip up. Florida is pretty hot and people usually do not use many knitted items. Time to get knitting until next time have a wonderful 4th of July. (^_^)
