Got Scales?

I do like the way the Koigu is turning out with this pattern. Yay! I am going to knit this pattern in an almost solid color next and may go down to 1.5 or 1 size needles. This is a very enjoyable knit and very pretty!

Two done, one begun.

I finished the Child's First Socks on Tuesday night. They are my favorite socks by far! I love the pattern and they fit so perfect! I will be making more of this pattern!

I started the infamous *P* socks in an interesting Koigu colorway...I love the colors in the yarn, but I am not so sure it is right for the pattern. Maybe I will frog it and knit a plain sock with it. I do love the turquoise blue, yellow, purpley-pink, and black colors all together! Makes for an interesting knit!

FO: Child's First Sock number one

Look what I finished at 12:00 A.M. while visiting my SIL. What a beautiful sock pattern! This was a fairly quick knit, too. I will be making more of these!

Berry Sunrise Surprise

After nearly 6 months of sitting in the dark closet, here it is making a comeback...the Sunrise Circle Jacket. Upon finishing the Central Park Hoodie, I felt guilty for abandoning this sweet, although intimidating knit. It is a very simple knit; the hemming afterwards is what scares me. I am going to tackle it with a positive attitude...once I have gotten that far. Here is the left sleeve and front in the works.

Ewe, I look a little like *Ellen*... oh well, better than Conan O'Brien...or is it???

FO:CPH, AKA "Quit smoking hoodie"

I am finished, and this sweater will always be known to me as the "help me quit smoking, gotta knit and not smoke" hoodie! It is just right in size, but I do regret not putting in the button holes and buttons. I think I will get a sweater pin just to keep the top together when wearing it. I wore it to work this morning and it was snuggly soft and warm!

Progress is goooood!

Here is my Central Park Hoodie almost complete(the sleeves are blocked and ready to be added)! I just bound off the left hand ribbing...YAY! I will begin on the right side tonight...sooon I will be wearing this lovely sweater, just in time for the cooler weather...I love, love, love this sweater...the yarn is soooo snuggly soft and the angora really sticks out a little and looks awesome, not to mention the beautiful different flecks of color all over the yarn! I am also working on my socks, that is what I really did all week...I will post pics soon of them! I really am dedicating this weekend to this wonderful hoodie!

Yay for NEW TWEED!!

I got mail today!! Michael bought me some Tahki New Tweed in Navy this weekend from someone is beautiful! I plan on making a vest with it, I really want to find a pattern for a cute cabled vest, since I am addicted to cables lately. I purchased the Patons Street Smart pattern book the other weekend and am planning on knitting the cute cabled hoodie on the front in Peacock color, and I am going to knit the Must Have Cardigan in the Natural mix color. Soooo much knitting I want to do! I stayed home today with a sick son and thought I would get some knitting done...I really did not get alot done, between cleaning and looking after Jack, but I am to my heel on the sock I am working on! Maybe I will have a pair of socks done before too long! I really want to get all of my socks done this month, the ones that don't have mates.

Month of Socks

Well, I sure have a lot of sock yarn to choose from...I organized my sock yarn a few weeks ago and wound some skeins into cute little yummy yarn cakes with my swift and ball winder...what fun! I started the Child's first sock with some of my stash...they are turning out quite awesome, too bad my camera doesn't capture the pattern too good...I will try to take more pics in the daytime.
