FO - Estonian Lace Sox, and some new!

I finished the Estonian Lace Socks, called "Fox faces" by Nancy Bush. Nice lace pattern, and wonderful Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. Knitting back and forth to work, but a great pattern in most aspects. Sorry for dark picture, it is not THAT dark? I guess my screen is newer ;-) Anyhow, the heat is still on. I am working hard on the dissertation. Life is going on. We have started to exercise, which feels VERY good. Every second day! 5 km, walking half, and then jogging) slow and walking in intervals back... We feel like new people. I can see this being addictive, but the knee is a bit sore.. Regardless, a new strength is there. Optimism.
The Cast on Mania is still "lingering" on a bit. I have casted on three knew knits. I guess it feels fun to knit fast cotton and silk T-shirts and shrugs. Or some left-over tape yarn like this...It is wonderful, Knitting away.....wonderful! Just wonderful. I hope you have a great time too.

FO- Persephone Shell

In tropical heat and on the sea - Persephone Shell is done. Soft Rowan Bamboo in lilac, and Muscat Cotton in nr 22 (brown). Pattern from spring issue of Interweave Knits magazine. I added little wings and an edge on the bottom, but it is still unblocked. Already use at the wonderful Bullandö Marina (sometimes it is nice when we get back from sailing - to just be treated at this top resturant). Anyhow - wonderful sailing weekend - and the water is 21 celcius. Wonderful! Tropical heat is just fantastic. Have a great summer! (we do!)
