Lightbox Day

I pulled out the lightbox today to take pictures of new inventory. While it was out I took pictures of some FOs and WIPs.

Deborah and I are doing a 6-month Yarn Harlot-esque sock stash "club". We are choosing 6 yarns and 6 patterns to do for the last 6 months of the year. These are socks for Scott that I made for July out of Opal's Coral Snake color.

July socks made from my own Strong Arm. Technically this wasn't a stash yarn. I took it from inventory. The pattern is the Chevron pattern from Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarns. The pattern is clever, but holy god, the errata. I recommend checking Interweave Knits website and Ravelry for errata before casting on any of the socks.

I started the Coquille shawl from the current Knitty using some of my 5/2 Cotton Warp yarn.  

I'm crocheting flowers from 100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet
I started working on Inverness from Knitty a few years back. THIS is going to be my Harry Potter sweater. It doesn't scream "wizard geek", it looks like something Hermione would wear, and I have the gray yarn for it. It is perfect if, aside from the fact that my gauge doesn't match, it doesn't come in my size and the neck and shoulders are all wrong.
I don't just take pictures of my FOs. I took a picture of this Hand-Charmer that Deborah knitted from Dyeabolical Sporty! in the Superheroes colorway. Pretty!
