Stuff I knit so far in 2012

I know I haven’t posted in forever, but I have actually been knitting. Some of the items were gifts, so I didn’t want to reveal them until they made it to their respective owners. There is an additional scarf that I plan to give away as a gift that I won’t post until later but I see no reason to hold back on posting the rest of it:

Shawl for Grandma’s 85th:

And finally, some stuff for me!!!
Fingerless mitts (in extremely bright lights… sorry I’m too lazy for the digital darkroom fixes)

And a shawl which I like too much to give away:

And just for fun, the blocking process of each shawl, as you can see if I am going to make more big shawls like that one for my grandma, I will require more blocking boards! Cardboard is ghetto, Miss.

    Hello, fellow Odd Duck swapper (I clicked through your ravatar)! I recognize that first shawl, I just knit a Haruni myself a month or so ago. Mine was also as a gift, but I really need to make one for myself, I love the way mine turned out, and yours as well. A great gift for grandma!

    Yes it is indeed a Haruni, and yes, now that I’ve made one as a gift i am seriously considering making one for myself one of these days! But you know how it is, the queue gets longer and longer and knitting can only go so fast 🙂 thank you for stopping by tho!
