Actual Finished Object

Hi everybody....I actually have knitting content for you and an actual finished object see.This is my contribution to Project Spectrum "Fire" element. Waving Lace socks from Interweaves Favorite Socks. ShibuiKnits sock yarn in "Pagoda" I love love love these socks. Yarn and pattern combo is now one of my favorites. Next to my Pirate Penllyn socks.
I now have 2 more projects on the needles. I cast on for Oblique on the 25th of February. I cast off the back today. So far I love how it is knitting up but I think that it might be longer then I want. Guess that's what I get for being short. :) Pattern is a fun knit I might actually finish my first sweater...well let's not get ahead of myself right?!

I am using Cascade220 in Doeskin Heather and a size 6 circular needle. I don't have a size 7 and when I swatched (yeah I know what you're thinking...she swatched?) I didn't like the way that the size 8 made the fabric look.
The rest of our stuff FINALLY came this week. Oh how I missed my bed, couch and stash :) Speaking of stash I looked at what I had in my knitting basket when we unpacked and realized that I should use some of the yarn that I had for a while. So I cast on some plain ol' socks.

Duet sock yarn in "Exclamation" It's DK weight and is knitting up really fast. Love them so far. I don't have any set timeline to finish these. It's just mindless knitting when I get tired or bored of lace.
I also added some lovely yarn to my stash. These came the day before we got our stuff back.

I got these from the Loopy Ewe. I joined the Dream in Color KAL. Here is Dream in Color Classy in "Deep Seaflower"
Also Dream in Color Smooshy in "Happy Forest" I love this yarn color and have been wanting it for a while now. I also ordered my first Sundara Sock yarn in "Grap over GreyViolet" and "Graphite" I wanted the Graphite for Project Spectrum "Earth" element. I will knit this or my Dream in Color "Happy Forest" Stay tuned for that.
Thank you all for checking in. Hope that you are all doing well. Check back in a couple days to see if I finish another section of my Oblique. Thanks for reading and Happy Knitting!
