If it's fiber...

Hello!

If it's fiber I'll probably be sewing it, knitting it, crocheting it, cooking it, or reading it.  Those are my main outlets right now.  Who knows what else may pop up in time and become an obsession.

Settling in, knitting away
We're getting more settled into our house now.  I've been knitting at night while Steve and I listen to old time radio shows before we go to bed.  I've finished the Chevron Tank, and have been figuring out how I want my shrug to be designed.  I've had it 1/4 of the way made many times before ripping it out.  I've been having a hard time deciding on a stitch pattern.  I've also been working on the circular shawl from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac.  That's been fun.  I've turned to that when my shrug designing has befuddled me.
Here's the tank:
Chevron Tank
 
The circular shawl is on the left and the shrug is on the right.  Both are works in progress.  The yarn is alpaca.  It is so soft. I look forward to finishing either of these before it gets too cool.
Shawl and Shrug WIPs
 
Last for today, I found the very first knitting project that I tackled 7 years ago.  It was packed away and I discovered during this move.  I used Red Heart acrylic yarn.  It feels horrible.  Especially after working with the alpaca.  I can't decide whether to save it just because it was my first finished knitted project, or give it away because I KNOW I will never wear it.
First Shawl
It's just a big ol' seed stitch triangle. Nothing fancy, just a lot of stitches to practice my knitting.
Maybe I'll keep it for a costume box.

I'll do my best to use this as a way to get some "me" time.  I'm hoping it will help me to see a project all the way through instead of fizzing out at the end.
