I really do finish things.
I just forget to blog about them.
So, I give you: my knitting since January 2010.
One pair of ribbed socks for my dad.
And a second pair of ribbed socks for my dad.
Then a third pair of ribbed socks for my dad.
Aaaaand a fourth pair of socks for my dad.
One of my goals for this weekend is to finish pair five. They’re on the toes (and they’re top-down.
It might be a while before I knit socks again.
I knit a lace jabot out of cashmere (sigh) – Artful Yarns cashmere, it took just one skein, and it was super-cute. My friend Andi had asked for a grown-up scarf. My hope is she can wear this in NC in both the winter and in the over-air-conditioned summer offices, and be adorable and professional all at once.
I also had a lot of fun with ravelympics, which is a challenge to knit/crochet/spin/weave something during the Winter Olympics.
I cast on for Saint James at the RUF Winter retreat at Cape Cod the Friday night of the opening ceremonies and finished in TEN days – I was wearing my sweater on a Wednesday while the Olympics were still going.
And I also frogged a TON of half-done, abandoned projects to reclaim the yarn. Hats and shawls and booties and all sorts of things that had a serious problem. The yarn is back in the wild, waiting to be used again.
I did finish those mitts for Molly’s little one. They’re too cute and she loves them. He’s a little too small to know the difference.
FOUR at a time baby mitts via magic loop on one long circular needle. I’m awesome.
Finally, I had some minor adventures in the dye pot this month…with leftover Easter Egg dye! After some discussion, Rosaline and I concluded that Easter Egg coloring had to be food-safe dye. So we threw some on some yarn.
Whew. I’ve been a busy girl. I’ve also been up to some sewing, but that’ll go into another post.
