This is my first toe up sock. I am using Judy's magic loop cast on method. I am doing one at a time, because I didn't want to make my head spin! This sock pattern is from the Percy Jackson Kal I am doing on Ravelry. The pattern called for stitch markers and all I have are the markers that are plastic and thick, so I got out some contrasting yarn and tied it in a circle and wa la a stitch marker!
I am usually good about not having too many projects going at the same time, but this is a project that I want to slowly work on anyway. It is the Tikvah Shawl on Ravelry. I normally have 2 projects going. One easy and one hard. It is easy to knit the easy pattern in the car, so I take that one. Then I save the hard one for knitting at home. I like to maximise my knitting into every possible second that I have :)
This next rectangle shawl is a stitch pattern from one of the Vogue books. I am participating in a Traveling Shawl Swap. I will be knitting 12" of this shawl, then 5 other girls will be knitting the rest. Then I will be knitting their shawls. I can't wait to see what I will be knitting. Whew.... I've got some knitting to do!

I finished my scowl I made with my Percy Jackson Kal kit.
I put a twist in it, sort of like a mobis.
I love it!

It's Star Wars weekends at The Hollywood Studios! Lots of Star Wars characters.
Ewoks!! He was so cute!
I made this vest! A friend of mine makes the props for this event and asked me to make this vest. It was easy to make. I also made The Greedo costume, but I didn't see him out there .

shawl. This is the Tikvah Shawl. It is so beautiful. I was thinking I would use one of the Storied yarns for this project, but I don't know which yarn I would use on that one either. Therefore, I decided to knit this shawl twice. Also this shawl will be knit up at my leisure. I don't want to knit it under pressure like the last one I did. I am under no time limits on this one. My Storied yarns will be here soon. I can't wait to knit those either!

We took a quick trip to North of Atlanta.
This is Toccoa Falls There is so much beauty in this world that can only be seen if you get off the couch and explore. The feeling of awe can be described here. The sound of the powerful water splashing in the river was amazing.
Here is Aidan's action shot. He is flying down the falls.
We drove on and went by the Gorge. Whoa, don't step to far off the road. It is a long, long way down.
Karl Wallenda crossed over this Gorge on a tight rope. I don't think I could ever do that. It is a long way down. If you are ever North of Atlanta it is a beautiful drive on HWY 441. Give it a try.
