Finally! Knitting content for me!

Vanesa, great job on your sock! I, too, am working on a pair of socks. Just got the first sock done this evening and the second one is almost to the end of the toe increases (I knit mine toe up). I belong to the Sock A Month 3 KAL but have been neglecting my knitting in order to crochet on my ripple afghans and fat bottom bags. It sure was nice to knit again, but I'm really racing to beat the clock on this one as the mate is due tomorrow! Wish me luck! Will post picture of the finished pair.

Yay my first sock ever! I used Lucia's sockulator. I even did a seamless kitchener's stitch on the toe with help from the stitch and bitch book. More info about the sock can be found on my blog. ;) The rest of the pictures are on our group flick page. Have a nice day!

Finished First Sock Ever

Hi everyone! Sorry no new knitting progress, yet.

I have been a bit obsessed by the Fat Bottom Bag from the Stitch N Bitch Happy Hooker book. They are crocheted. I have made 5 in the past week or so and am now working on my 6th. Just so we have some pictures to look at I'll put up a couple here. Otherwise they're on my blog. I have, however, been thinking of making a knitted version of this bag. If I am able to do that, I'd let you know. Of course, I wouldn't be able to crank one out in a day since I'm a much slower knitter than crocheter. We'll see!

But then just this morning I realized that I have a week to finish a pair of socks for the Sock A Month 3 KAL that I belong to. I just bought a skein of Trekking XXL at the beginning of the month from Nancy's Quilt Shop in a beautiful orange/red that would work nicely. I guess I've got to put away the Fat Bottoms for awhile, huh?

The Bunny is done!

Here he is all finished. I put a bow on him and sent him off to his new owner in Philly!

Hello everyone! It's been a while. I have a few pics to chare. They aren't of a newly finished object, but I've never posted pics of it and I think my son is totaly cute in the hat. :) It's the London Beanie pattern and I knit it up with a lighter worsted weight yarn and smaller needles than the pattern called for therefore creating a preschooler sized version of the original. Clever you say? Well you could say that. ;)

Looking forward to seeing everyone. ;)
