Ankle Socks with i-cord bind off

I saw that Johnathan had on footies for sock, which I liked a lot. Here's my question and perhaps Johnathan can chime in here too. If I make them a bit longer than the ankle, it will look okay but I like the kind that stops just as it overflows the shoes. I was thinking about making an i-cord bind off so that they won't work their way down into my shoe while I am on a hike.

Kirrmaier II Part D- Almost Done. Sleeves Complete

Good Evening All,

Well I am almost complete and on schedule. I hope to complete the garment this weekend. All that is left to do is the V-Neck finish and weave in all the ends. I really like Heidi's pattern. Comes together fast. Looks great and I really like my I Cord Bind-Off to her original pattern. Here is a pic taken a few minutes ago before dinner.

Triple Stitch Prayer Shawl

My daughter asked me to knit a couple of prayer shawls for a mother and daughter who were having some significant health issues. Nothing too complicated, but the shawl will be a mental and spiritual hug for a couple of women who need need support while going through some tough times.

Knotty But Nice Hat

I started this hat at home then took it to Colorado to finish. Once there, I realized it was a bit more intricate than I could focus on, so I brought it home and finished here. It's made with acrylic. I am going to make another one with good wool because I think the uniformity of the stitching may be better with animal fiber.

Does anyone know of any cool KALs that have just started on ravelry or are about to start?
I just finished the TDF and really enjoyed the community environment and am thinking I would like to try my first KAL.

Can anyone recommend any?

(Almost) Eternal Bliss

There are moments in a knitters life that are without match. Usually they are relatively fleeting- a finished project, a mother's joy at her new shawl or the admiration of others as they see skilled fingers producing intricate lace. I'd hardly imagined that it was possible to string a series of these moments together to create something akin to Nirvana, but this past weekend proved me wrong.
