They're not real visible. They're in the middle section.

Agree that it will probably be easier to see them when it's blocked. I bought a skein of "shawl in a ball" the other day; have not dared to look at it, nor share the pattern with sister, who will undoubtedly disapprove.

And I love those socks - cute little cables, awesome yarn!

I recently finished two projects - one is a little sweater for my friend's grandchild as an Easter gift. Had some yarn left so I also made a headband for her - as these seem to get worn by little ones these days. Then of course I woke up the middle of the night in a panic about giving a headband to a one year old - strangulation risk alert!!!! Her Grandma thought it was pretty hilarious when I told her about my anxious moment & she assured me all would be fine - when she finished laughing at my story.

The other is a shawl/scarf - I used aspects of two patterns to create it, which was an interesting endeavour. I bought the yarn for it a while ago, not knowing what I would make or for whom, and finally the inspiration struck. I mailed it to a special friend this week & she rec'd it yesterday - SO THRILLED with the surprise gift. The yarn is mostly Israeli cotton, and very soft - and my friend is actually Israeli :) and the colours are so much within her usual palette.

Now I think I have to get back to my Tempestry project & finish it off so it can be hung!

This is why I should be a much more accomplished knitter than I am. I have such a fondness for a neat skein of an interesting material/material combo/dye.

Quit shoulding on yourself. Practice is what makes knitters accomplished. And lots of swearing and mistakes.

Yeah, well, talk to my sister, who has spent many an hour knitting with me, then tinking me back to the original, lol. She is the reason I work in a lifeline every 10 rows or so...some of us are more distractable than others, and the very physicality of the numbers (I can "see" 75 in my head, but ask me to physically count them, and it's gonna take 2-3 tries to get the same answer; I'm fond of "wishful thinking" when it comes to stitches, lol).
