Knitting away. . .




Pattern: "Snowflake Socks" IK Fall 2007
Yarn: Wildfoote, in Blue Boy and Vanilla
Needles: sz. 3 dpns
Time: two weeks so far, working on and off!

These socks are a holiday gift for a good friend. . . who'd better not be reading my blog! SO pretty, and going so quickly! This is my second attempt at color work. I'm also working on a sweater for me, ME, ME!!! Yay! See below. . . .




Pattern: "Starsky" from Knitty.com
Yarn: Reynolds Rapture
Needles: Denise, sz. 10
Time: just about a week, and three skeins in!
This yarn was a wedding gift from the fabulous Jen, and we're working on it as a knitalong. . . Jen was smart, and dunked her swatch. It GREW! I might be frogging soon :-P No fun at all. What IS fun is that this yarn spit-splices! No weaving in ends for me!
