52 pair plunge--still swimming

I'm keeping up with the plunge; I've knit 5 pairs of socks so far. Of course, 4 pairs are baby socks, but they count too :)

I just found out that my sister in law is pregnant, so I have another "victim" to foist handknits upon. Ha!

With the move, things are still up in the air, hence the lack of pictures. Hopefully I can get things organized and post pics of the socks I've made.

I've also started Eva's shawl in the biscotti handspun I made from the Spinning Bunny fiber. I'm starting with the targhee, and when that runs out, I'll go with the merino/tencel blend. The merino/tencel is a bit thicker, so I'll probably go up a hook size or two, hopefully creating a ruffly edge. I found the patter on theOne Shawl To Rule Them All thread on Ravelry. I haven't crocheted anything big in a looooong time, so it took me a bit to get up to steam. But now, I'm moving right along. I'm so happy to find a good use for this yarn. I wanted to make a shawl out of it, but I already have Laminaria on the needles, and I didn't want to freak myself out. I'm trying to keep the WIPs to a minimum.

Well, back to my shawl...
