What does it want to be?

What should I be when I grow up?

There are 3 balls (3.5 oz, approx 460 yds ea) of this yarn sitting there wanting to be turned into something useful or decorative. They were intended to become socks but have been whispering about hugging someone’s shoulders instead of their feet. Any ideas what they should become?

Sleepytime itty bitty

I’ve been playing with dolls again. When I finished the itty bitty doll dress, bloomers & cap for the youngest grand’s Christmas I wasn’t much in the mood to play dolls again for a while but this poor thing was cold so I knitted her a little sleeper & cap.

Summer Garden Shawl

This is the shawl I currently have in progress. The pattern is Tea Wrap from the Lion Brand website and the yarn is Country Cabled Cotton, DK weight, in colorway Mexicali. I’m calling it my summer garden shawl because the swirl of colors reminds me of an old fashioned flower garden in the full bloom of early summer.
