Red Pesto Sock

The first red pesto sock is now finished

I’m really pleased with it. I am really enjoying knitting these. I think it’s because I’m doing a simple stocking stitch pattern, with minimal ribbing – a nice simple mindless project with the variegated yarn providing some interest to the knitting.

I will be spending all my available knitting and crochet time this week trying to finish the Spring Shawl. I need to get it finished by Friday night, so that I can block it in time for my mother’s birthday. I think I am about halfway there at the moment.

I really hate knitting or crocheting to deadlines, as I usually fail, and I find that it takes away a bit of the fun. I know my mother will love this shawl – she really appreciates my handmade gifts, so I will make every effort to get it done in time!

    Is that Spring Shawl an Eva’s Shawl or a new pattern? It’s gorgeous. 🙂 What yarn is it?

    Heather, full of questions today!

    Hi Heather, thanks!
    Yes it’s another Eva’s shawl. The yarn is Margaret Stove Atisan Lace.
