I finally finished my next pair of socks from Cat Bordhi's book "Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters." 
  I used Dream in Color Everlasting sock yarn with two #2 circular needles. I started them on Janutary 4, 2012 and finished on March 26 2012.
I started my next pair called Basketweave Cuff using TrekkingXXL and Salvia yarn. 
I also received my swap package from the forum -fiber, friends and fun swap. The colors of the roving are so lovely, now I just have to get up the courage to spin the yarn.
I think this will make beautiful yarn.

I finished my KAL project for my Ravelry group. We knitted a pattern called Wingspan. It was fun and easy, no counting rows. I chose to use Trekking XXL yarn for mine. When I finished it, I thought it needed a little something extra, so I crocheted a border around the bottom. I think it turned out rather nice.
The yarn Trekking XXL
In progress.
Finished! I also decided to add two more triangles to the end.

My swap

I took part in a Lion Brand Swap on Ravelry and this is my swap package.
I needlefelted this little sheep as part of my package.
Now I am taking part in a KAL. We are knitting this from a pattern called Wingspan and I chose to use Trekking XXL for mine. 
I just finished needle felting this little bear for my etsy store.
He is fully five way jointed with thread.

Final Item

I finished knitting the final item for my swap. I knitted a grey cowl using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn in the colorway of #149 Silver Grey. This, along with the fingerless mittens and shawl from the previous  post are for a Lion Brand Yarn Swap.
This pattern is from the book "Knit & Wrap" by Nathalie Mornu. The design is Frivolous by Jolynn Burt. Her's is a bit more drapey because she used Naturally Canon Spa, which has 25% bamboo, 75% microdenier acrylic. The Lion Brand Vanna's Choice is 100% acrylic.
I think it turned out rather nice.
