My Cleopatra Sock is moving along. It feels like it's moving pretty quickly, as I am encouraged to see what the next step will bring. I turned the heel: And I've wrapped the snake around the ankle: After knitting more last night, I'm nearly ready to start the head!
I figured out the attachment of the asp. These socks are pretty addictive! I don't have much to say, the yarn is wonderful, and the pattern is a lot of fun!
So officially the summer of socks started June 21. But in my standard style, I'm behind. I started the Cleopatra socks two nights ago. Of course, I messed up and had to rip out and start again yesterday, but I mastered the toe! I started the asp last night, but am still trying to understand … Continue reading Summer of Socks Begun!
Having finished my Eyelet Cardi, I decided I wanted a spring summer sweater. Of course I want it now, but I'll have to wait till I finish it. I've started it and am enjoying this yarn. This is a cotton soy blend from Sublime: Sublime Soya Cotton: It's knitting up relatively quickly, the yarn is … Continue reading On the needles, off the needles and looking toward the summer
Having admitted that I'm a true project knitter I seemed to have whipped through the Eyelet Cardi. I had some Jo Sharp DK Wool in Porcelain that I'd bought at Webs a few years ago.

This is a good project for when my hands are tired … Continue reading On the needles
I seem to be on a finishing streak around here. We'll see how long it lasts. I finished my Inga hat this weekend, just in time for the weather to warm up. I wanted to take a picture before I steamed it, to remind myself how much blocking helps: And after steaming: Doesn't seem much … Continue reading Socks and another Hat!
Well, I finished my Christmas knitting (by the skin of my teeth), but didn't take any pictures till last weekend. Here are the socks I made for my father in law: I think they look best on the feet, but without a willing model here's the pattern with a little stretching: This is the Stalker … Continue reading Christmas Knitting
It was a productive weekend, finishing a big project that I've been working on, and a pair of socks that I've been working of for a couple of months. I'm happy with how they came out. The yarn isn't the softest, it is silky though and very smooth. I think they'll work well with clogs and my … Continue reading Finished some socks
Well, no ribbons for my socks this year. But I'm really glad I tried. I didn't get to see them (we went away), but C & E checked on them for me. The feedback I got was that the ribbon winners were more colorful as well as textured, and done with very fine stitches. So, … Continue reading Dragon Socks and the fair and more sock knitting
