I don't know how...

some people can blog about something every day. For one thing, I have a hard time finding time. And secondly, my life is a little too boring that I see a need to blog about something every day.
Please forgive me, it's been 2 weeks since my last post. (sounds like confession, doesn't it?)
I have been knitting a little. School is winding down to the last days, and the kids are driving us crazy.
So here are the Leafling socks finished!
And another dishcloth finished! -- This is called Every Day Any Day from the Monthly Dishcloths yahoo group using 3.5 mm needles and Pink Lemonade color of Peaches & Creme cotton worsted weight.
A couple of repeats of the pattern on the Lilac Socks from Jeanne Townsend Sock Kal yahoo group using 2.25 mm Knit Picks circulars and Dream in Color Smooshy in Cool Fire.
And I am working slowly on the Slow Bee Mystery shawl. Just started this week and have gotten past the first 22 rows. That is what's pictured below with a couple of closer shots on down.
Gotta go watch the season finale of Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy!

Some progress

I finished another dishcloth yesterday. It is called Wedding Bands by Kathleen Brundige which can be found on Ravelry. Used Lily Sugar 'n Cream yellow and 3.5mm needles
I'm now into the foot of the Leafling socks. Want to finish these up soon.
I need to knit clue 5 of the Mystic Light shawl and finish it up. I want to work some more on the Orkney Pi shawl and the Lilac Socks I've started. Gotta go now and get to knitting!
