I know I haven't updated in a while, but I just posted this to the Sybermoms Stashalong Blog so I thought I'd see if a cut-and-paste would work. IT DID! Woohoo! Twice the posts for half the work!
This post is going to be photo-heavy and prose-light.
First is the sock froggie blanket--a variation on the sock monkey blanket in The Happy Hooker. I'm glad it's done. I don't care if I ever crochet/knit with mint green and pale yellow again. It doesn't lie perfectly flat, but I'm not worried about it. I'm hoping to have it in the mail to my friend later this week.
Springtime in Paris socks. To the left we have the detail shot flipped over so you can decide if the supposed-Eiffel tower details look anything like Eiffel towers. To the right is the progress on the sock so far. This has gone very quickly and is making me a convert to the magic loop technique.
The yarn-over cable socks. I have darn near perfectly matched up the stripes and am at nearly the same point so as soon as sock #2 is caught up to sock #1 I will be able to work them semi-simultaneously so they finish at the same time. I will be so glad to get these finished as I HATE HATE HATE the dpns.
This is the Lotus Blossom Tank. I'm about 2/3 of the way through the 4th lace repeat. I want to have it done to wear on Easter with the Short and Sweet (I think that's the name) bolero/shrug thingie from The Happy Hooker. The tank is in Shine Sport and I will be ordering Shine Worsted for the bolero thingie. And I need to make the skirt I intend to wear with them. Sure, I'll be done by Easter. No problem. *twitch*
Ok, these aren't knitted, but I like this so I wanted to post it. It's a Roll Your Own needlecase from SnB but modified for dpns. I like it. Too bad I hate the dpns so much.
