B's Socks - DONE!

Started Dec 1/09 Finished Jan 20/10

Time for socks for the little girls. I had problems with the short row heel. The left side is right but I messed up the left side. After frogging 3 times, I decide I would try harder on the next sock! The second sock heel is better but I still don't like short row heel.

Dec 30/09 Finished one sock!

Needles: Size 2 circular

Yarn: PRINCESS fingering handpainted yarn by Stitchnpretty

Pattern: Roll-Top Child-Size Fingering Weight Short-Row Heel Sock from The Big Book of Socks by Kathleen Taylor

My Purple Socks - DONE!

Started Dec 2/09 Finished Jan 20/10

I LOVE this yarn. It is so soft and the color is lovely. I have big feet so I knitted the toe till I had 60 stitches instead of the 54 in the book. The second sock has a funky toe since I cast it on as a figure 8 and I did an extra row following the instructions.

Dec 7/09 - Finished one repeat of the 26 line pattern

Dec 21/09 - Turned the heel but realized I made it too long. Will have to froggle back and redo the heel. ARG!

Jan 1/10 Finished one sock!

Needle: Size 2 circulars

Yarn: The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Darkling Beetle

Shadow Lake Wrap - DONE!

Started Nov 10/09 Finished Jan 13/10

I know I have this thinga about starting projects. I'm working on a 3rd pair of slippers and 2nd fingerless gloves. I've figured out that I don't like doing the same pattern twice. I wanted to try this MCN yarn. The color is lovely!!

Nov 30/09 I LOVE this yarn!! It's so nice and soft. I finally got a nice picture of the different colors too.

Jan 14/09 I've washed and blocked the wrap. It really grew! It was an easy 16 row project though at the end of I was tired of doing it.

Needles: size 7 circular (I have 3 projects using the size 6 needles)

Yarn: Fiberphile's Merino Cashmere sock in Shadow Lake
