Must. Post. More. Often...

So what's the point of a knitting blog, if you never post a thing? I swear I've been working on projects, even have a couple to show off. But I can't seem to get around to taking and posting photos. So I'll just give you, dear reader, a quick glimpse at what's on the needles.

Oblique -- A beautiful Veronik Avery sweater pattern. Available free on Knitty. I used Malabrigo worsted in Sealing Wax. I love, love, love this sweater and have to keep and eye on it around my friend Erin. She seems to like it a lot. And it fits her very well. Hopefully it won't wander off with her.

Muriwai Bath Mat -- From Knit 2 Together by Mel Clark and Tracey Ullman. A great little cotton bathmat. Needs to be blocked, my edges aren't straight. I used Pisgah Peaches and Cream in white so I can bleach it along with my towels and shower curtain. The kitty seems to like it. She naps in the bathroom floor now.

Easy Flame Lace Scarf -- A free pattern from Knit and Tonic. Love that Wendy Bernard. She does gorgeous stuff. The pattern calls for and I am used Malabrigo laceweight. This stuff is heavenly. I think I've blogged about this project before, but I've picked it up again and have added a few inches to it.

Blanket squares -- No fancy pattern here. Just garter stitch squares for a swap in my Ravelry group, the awesome and amazing Knit Knack. I love those ladies. One of these days, I'll finished those damn squares.

Socks -- I haven't settled on a pattern here. My mom picked out the yarn and it is absolutely lovely, but I can't seem to settled on the right pattern for it. I would love to find something beautiful to make with this yarn in time for her birthday in October. Its Rio de la Plata sock multisolid, if anyone out there happens to have a suggestion.

On a quick non-knitting note, I'm currently reading "The Monster of Florence" by Douglas Preston and Mario Spezi. Its fascinating. You should check it out.
