Finished My First Pair Of Socks

I finally finished my first pair of socks. House socks out of cheap Wal Mart worsted weight yarn. Not fancy or anything but as their only my second project, I'm kind of proud of them.

They actually fit and amazingly enough they actually came out the same size. I was convinced I'd wind up with two different sized socks somehow.

Now I have to decide what I am going to try next. Another pair of socks, an Irish Hiking Scarf to learn cabling, or a hat. Decisions, decisions.

Centre pull balls

Does anyone know if centre pull balls of yarn must be started from the centre rather than the outside? The yarn I'm using at present is a centre pull but I started from the easy to find outside end, and the yarn is untwisting as I knit. I have to let go of the yarn after two stitches so it can retwist, makes for slow knitting.

Heart Felt VD Present

This is the “Heart-Felt Wishes” bowl from www.fiberfemmes.com. Bad puns aside, I think it turned very well.

I used two stands of Patons Classic Wool and size 13 needles, just like the pattern called for.

It went surprisingly fast, and I almost had it on time to give away on valentines day.

I blame Physics homework for the delay.

Sadly, I have just discovered that my fancy new W/D is not that great when it comes to felting projects. I had to finish this one off by hand. Considering I already have the yarn for at least three more felted projects, I am gonna have to start doing laundry at friend’s houses. That’ll be fun.
