Bolero was tooo big...but works?

I tried to make Ribbed Lace Bolero, but it turned out way too big. I still don't settle into a consistent gauge until too far into the project for me to care enough to frog it and start over. Ah well. I've worn it once and think it's cute enough...

I used some skeins that I bought at the Inselwolle yarn store on the island of Lindau, Germany. It's beautiful Baumwolle--cotton--actually from Germany! :)

I've been incredibly busy this summer, and busily knitting, too!

First we have my current project: purple socks. Third pair, and this one FINALLY fits me! :D

Next, we see my second pair of socks: rust ones for a Christmas gift.
MIT Free Housing Socks

Here is my FIRST pair of socks: blue and purple gigantic things.
How do you photograph your own foot?

We have Mateo's handwarmers (he owes me a latte):

We have Audrey's shower gifts:
Kitchen towel!

Flower Washcloths

And we have Bill's scarf in action:
Bill and his scarf!

Whew. I have so many projects in my queue, it's wonderfully insane.
