Home Again, Down Under

We arrived back today after a very easy flight.  It was a busy trip for me, from a knitting point of view...lots of hats promised and delivered.  
Here's the navy watch cap for Ross, finished, at last.  Forgot to take a photo of the brown one for Greg...need to get a modeled shot.

And here's the brown Porom for Karine...need to get permission from her to post a pic of her wearing it! It looks MUCH better on her, believe me...

And here's me wearing the charcoal beret I made for Rodnay.  Also need to ask if I can post a pic of him wearing it...
I think I already posted pics of the Mink/Cashmere berets in blueberry, so I won't post them again.  But here's what I'm up to now..

First, a small triangle shawl, a Mystery Knit-along on Ravelry, pattern by Wendy Johnston.  This picture was taken shortly after I started, and now I'm only waiting for the final clue before finishing.

And last, but not least, Anne Hanson's Crooked Walking Shawl is now underway, using more of the spectacular Great Northern Yarns, this time a fingering weight blend of Mink, Milk and Merino:
I've learned the hard way not to attempt any lace knitting when I'm jetlagged, so progress on these last two will have to wait a few days.

That Wendy Johnston triangle shawl above is really beautiful!
