I'm so behind on photos, it's terrible. I just need to remember to take them when it's light outside! That said, here's my poorly-lit, night-time photo of finished object #9 of 2010.
Ishbel shawl, knit out of Wollmeise. Because I've been amassing a little stockpile of Wollmeise but had yet to use any, I decided the first project should take advantage of the generous skein size, so I went for the limit - I knit the large stockinette section and the large lace section. Of course, after I'd bound off half of the shawl I ran out of yarn, so I had to tink back a few rows and reknit, omitting the last two rows of the pattern. I think it still looks just fine, though. I'll block it this weekend, and then I'll know for sure. The Wollmeise is just so gloriously color-saturated, it was fun to knit, even though it hasn't got as tight a twist as I usually prefer.
I've also been knitting a pair of Hedera socks, of which one is done, and the other is a couple inches so far. So I've been knitting, I just haven't been finishing much lately. Until tonight!
