things I've been working on

not much to report, except my various craftiness - school starts in 2 weeks, football practices start tomorrow... did you know that someone actually makes a mouthguard specifically for kids with braces? who'da thunk it??

anyway... i'm making another pair of toe up socks, 2 at a time, magic loop.... i love the idea of it, and i think if i keep practicing, i'll get better at it...

and then, 2 days ago, one of my mystery shawl KAL's started... this one's a challenge - i thought i was pretty good at the lace thing, but have never tried to knit something as fine as this yarn! it's like knitting with carpet thread...
but the first clue is done, beads and all

and that's life in the not so big city this week - maybe by next week, i'll have pictures of mom's cardigan (back and one of the fronts is done)

I love the colours in your new socks! I've not tried the magic loop method yet; it looks very satisfying to see both socks growing at the same time. The new shawl looks interesting. I can't eait to see how this one turns out!
