FO super post!

I've been busy!  And lazy! Let's just cut to the photos of knitted things, okay?

Corrina Ferguson's Berlioz

A super cute shawlette knit out of Shalimar Yarns Breathless. Like the pattern, like the yarn, like the results!

Ribbelmuster Socks

These got a blue ribbon at the fair!  Knit of Handmaiden Casbah Sock (luscious). I love swirly sock patterns.

Corrina Ferguson's Minerva's Tower socks

Knit from Madelinetosh Tosh Sock. A purple approaching black. I love these socks. They look super complicated, but the pattern is easy to remember. But I would suggest using a bobby pin to help with the cables.

Cecily Glowik MacDonald's Goodale cardigan

Knit from Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, I made a couple small changes to the pattern. First, I added a few inches to the body. Second, I added elbow length sleeves. I love how wearable this cardigan turned out.  Also, I adore pockets.

BONUS!  County Fair Pictures!

County fair shawl

The aforementioned Ribbelmuster socks with their blue ribbon. My Acer Cardigan with its blue ribbon (despite not having a top button or having been well blocked (had to bring them to the fair three days earlier than I thought I had to...)). And my Evenstar shawl with its blue ribbon and Superintendent's Choice rosette. Very exciting.

And that's the knitting that's fit to share. Onward, ho!

Gorgeous! Congratulations on the ribbons! I've been thinking of you with the forest fires and hoping all is well-fingers crossed for rain!
