The shawl is for a friend. I had made her a scarf a long time ago but never sent it. During my cleaning, I found it but unfortunately the moths had found it, too. I think this new project will be more to her liking anyway. I know she loves this color! (It's called Papaya and isn't as red as it looks in the photo.)
And the socks are for me! Two of my students want to knit socks and I think the Sunrise pattern may be a good one for them to knit. It's for sizes small through extra large which is not common for a sock pattern. And it's toe up so they can easily customize the socks to their feet. I'd like to get one sock mostly completed by Saturday's class then use the other sock to demonstrate how to make the project. I love that the yarn looks like a sunrise!
What are you knitting these days?
