April Project Round -Up!

So, another month of knitting over, and what did I accomplish?
Well, not that much. Check the stats:
  • 1 Japanese Garden Shawl (FOR MEEEEEEE!!) - note this was made from hand spun yarn :)
  • 1 Daybreak (FOR MEEEEEE!!)
  • 3 pairs of baby booties (for ChariTEEEEEE!!) (See what I did there?)
So, the selfish index for this month is amazing compared to earlier months this year.
Selfish index for April 11 is 40%! It would have been even better except that I felt guilty and churned out those three pairs of baby booties right before month-end.

You know the drill, photos of the projects which have not been posted are below (in other words, if you want to see my fancy handknit, handspun shawl, you have to go back one post)

Daybreak in progress is a hot mess:


 Daybreak done is a hot piece: (I've worn it now two days in a row since it came off the blocking wires and may make it three days tomorrow)



And now for the crappy cell phone picture of proof! (do you see that awesome star trek communicator shawl pin? My Feff rocks)
And the preemie booties: I'm especially happy with these because the green ones are left over from my pair of monkey socks.
