Long time, no see

Well, my good intention of posting at least once a week flew right out the window. It happens. I guess I could aim for once a month? I've been busy. Knitting and other.

I've made some heavy progress on many projects.

Here's what I've done since my last post on Secret of the Stole ii:
Hint 4

Hint 5

Hint 6

Here's what's been completed on Spring Shawl Surprise:

Clue 6

Clue 8

Notice how I completely skipped over Clue 7? I forgot to take pics when I finished it. :(

And here is some slow progress on Dem Fischer sin Fru:

Clue 1

Clue 2

Clue 3

Also in the mix is my Sock Knitters Pentathlon. This Knit-a-long kicked off March 1st; the pattern was released at Midnight EST and I was able to download it and cast on right away. I was not, however anywhere near close to winning the gold (or the silver, or the bronze) as the first finisher was done with BOTH socks in under 9 hours! I did finish in a good time for my own records...March 5th at 2 PM. I included the time it took to weave in the ends (not because I'm that persnickety, but because I didn't look at the clock until I had tried both socks on).

I used Knit Picks Gloss in "Pumpkin" on 2.25mm double pointed needles (2 sets so I could knit both socks at the same time).

I promised in my last post a photo of some acquired stash. For your viewing pleasure:

This is my half of an order from Astrid's Dutch Obsessions that I split with a friend.

Next time I'll post some progress photos of the Tailored Cardigan from Garn Studio/Drops Designs.

You sure have been a busy bee! I especially love the socks. They look like they fit really well. :)
