Parasol Progress

I've been making good progress on the Parasol Pullover. The 4 lace repeats are the fun part. Now I'm chugging along on the k1 p3 body section. I'm hoping it doesn't get really boring because the back and front are made alike. My mother is treating "the girls" to a few days in Vegas next month. That means that I have about 3 weeks to get this finished.(It's a little dulled out from the flash and low lamp light.)

There are also 3 very lonely single socks waiting for their mates. Actually, not quite 3. I cast on and started the second foot of the Baby Cables and I'll cast on the Lilac Lace before I turn in tonight.

Late Sunday I asked my brother Charles, receiver of the Maze socks, to try on the completed Baby Cable sock so that I could check the fit. (They're for an older brother who lives out of town.) He wanted to keep them and told me that I should knit another pair for OB. While it warms my heart to know how much he cherishes hand knits, I don't relish the idea of knitting socks that are sizes 12 and 13. I never thought my brothers would ever wear hand knit socks!!!

This has thrown a big wrinkle in my knitting plans. For a brief moment, I thought I was shortening my permanent knitting list when actually I've only removed one person and added two more.

I love the sweater. It does look like a fun pattern.

The Parasaol Pullover is lovely.
