Catching Up With Clair

Petey helps

 I get so busy with blogging that I forget to post my own projects. These are from the last several months.
Deer mittens

The other side of the deer mittens. I must have read the directions wrong!
I originally used this Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn for a pair of socks, hated them...

... unraveled them,
and made them into this shrug

More socks

My sweater, knit from Knit Picks Shine Sport yarn.
I was rushing to keep Petey from helping again, thus the wrinkly look.
It's better in person.
