My very first sock (and first post)

I used the tutorial here and tackled my first non-rectangular project, a sock.

I've finished the first one, and it turned out much better than I'd expected.

Completed Norah Gaughan Niche

Finished my first cuff to cuff project for my grandmother. Not that difficult and a great project that I didn't have to pay much attention.

"Jaywalker" Socks

These are "jaywalker" socks....a FREE pattern by Grumperina on Ravelry. They were knit on one 12" Addi circular needle, Size 2.5 mm,and DP's for heel and toe. This is a fun top-down pattern that adds an extra dimension to random dyed yarn.l

I have the startitis, I have lost the battle.

Yeah, I cast on something new because I couldn't imagine working on one of the items in progress. I have fallen to another spring's case of the startitis even though I recognized the signs and symptoms but was defenseless in its path. This is the Apples For the Trees yarn I had plyed up this last week. I am knitting the Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief.

I Am Finally Making A Shawl...

for my daughter, Sarah. Sarah gets the medical supplies out to MSF and relief NGO's when the first reports come in of human suffering, deadly conflicts, atrocities and disease. I get heartsick when I read of people who have nothing to worry about except a cranky Iphone not getting a signal or the upload time on Tyfany-Amber's Roku is shorter...as if!!!!

A Real Live FO!

A pair of toe-ups. The reverse Dutch heel still looks like nipples on my heels but I'll block them now. :-) They would have been identical twins but for a knot that appeared as i was doing the cuff. If i were really anal i could have wound ahead. But I'm not that anal.

Now I have to finish my Brethrens....

Starting a new sweater and having to rip :-(

I am livid. Working on a new sweater, one that I wanted to do several years ago. The first time, I bought the yarn and they were two different shades, but I'd already knitted up the back and front when I saw it in a different light to my shock and dismay. Fast forward to today, I am trying to do the same sweater and I've never made so many mistakes in my life.
