Free Shawl Pattern

I think it's the bee's knees.  The pattern is available for free from the folks at Tahki Stacy Charles.  I imagine wearing this with the summer dresses that I claim I'm going to sew for myself. We'll see. Things haven't been getting made as quickly as planned 'round these parts.

Take these socks, for instance.

Pattern: Garter Stitch Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: From, "I want candy" colorway.
Needles: Freakin' Size US 1

I first blogged about starting them back in June of 2009. Poor things. They got pushed aside so that I could start other projects to neglect for years work on other projects. I pulled them out of a bag about a month (two months?) ago and was determined to finish them. Now that they're done and I've already worn them at least 3 times, I'm sort of mad at myself for taking so long to finish them. Because I have fallen in love.

I like to run my toes along the purl ridges on the inside of the sock.  I don't know why I told you that, but I thought I'd share.  Believe me, this is nowhere near the little tidbits of "TMI" my friends are used to hearing from me.
