The State of the Knit

I am currently working on three projects.
  1. A pair of size 11 (children) socks in a multicoloured acrylic for my niece.
  2. A black sweater in this pattern.
  3. A blue lace shawl (this one) in some blue cotton thread from Knit Picks.
So, how are things?

I'm decreasing down to the foot of the first sock. They're surprisingly soft for pure acrylic.

I've finished the ribbing for the bottom of the sweater and am working on the very long torso-y bit. Just started that, maybe 3 or 4 rounds so far.

I'm only on the 11th row of the lace. I need some wooden needles. I was trying to do it on my metal ones because I already had them but it's just way to slippery.

This is the first post on this brand new blog.  In honour of this momentous occasion I shall provide a list of fibre-craft related terms in Esperanto below the cut. The choice of celebratory blog content most certainly does not have anything to do with the desperate need to know how to say 'knitting' in Esperanto less than five minutes ago. That was completely a coincidence.
