Update..... I've been keeping busy with my latest indulgence of hand dyeing fiber, it's unfortunately taken time away from the knitting..... I went through a bit of startitis awhile back, but I've managed to keep it in check. I thought I'd post some pic's showing some of the little progress I've been making.

Sugarplum Shrug, Interweave Knits Christmas Gifts 2007.
This is the body of the shrug. I have yet to complete the edging fo
r the cuffs and around the body.

Flared Smoke Ring
Loving this pattern. Jackie E-S is the designer from the website Heart Strings Fiber Arts. She has some lovely lace patterns.

My version of a Chevron Scarf using Lorna's Laces. I found the stitch pattern in Interweave Knits book, Scarf Style. I alternated between the colours Vera and Bittersweet.
