I currently have 3 knitting projects going. Here are some glimpses:
A beaded shawl. Probably one of the most challenging projects I've done. I was intimidated at first because I never did beading with knitting, but it's been surprisingly easy. There are 300+ stitches each row and it's lace thread, so this is taking awhile (aka forever). The picture doesn't really do justice to the beauty.
I knit this Christmas stocking for Jeralyn. I'm NOT a sock knitter, but this was a fun project (and there was only ONE--I don't like knitting socks because you finish one and then have to do another--unless...oh never mind). I simplified the project by just doing two colors, where the original pattern calls for 3 colors. I should have taken a picture next to a penny to show scale. You can find the FREE pattern here. It took me about 2 days to knit this, but it would have been less time if I didn't have to pull out the toe part two times. The 3rd time is a charm, right? I really like this simple pattern. I will probably use it for future children (future--when that time comes). *smile* Oh, and I just bought some purple sequins that I will sew onto the purple. I will take more/better pictures (showing scale) once it's truly completed.
How about you? Any projects you are trying to finish up this year?
