Cables Galore

I seem to be on a cable kick right now.  I started the Habitat hat yesterday.  I am using Wicked Stitch Cauldron Dyed from the Wicked Stitch.  This yarn has a lot of sproing I think.

I have been working on my Twist sweater a little here and there.  I have finished the decreases for the arms.  I just need to finish the back and start on the two fronts.  I would really like to finish this sweater before it gets hot so I have a few months.

Maine Comes to Kansas

I was in the mood for a "quick knit".  I think these fit the bill pretty well.  I started them on November 21,2010 and finished them the next day.  These were made out of the Sea Dreams Handspun 2.0.  These will be going to live with my sister in law, Denise.

The first pair was such a fun and quick knit I made another.  These are going to live with the babysitter that watched the kids on Saturday last week while I took a Spinning Self Striping Yarns class.  I started these on Sunday and finished on Monday.

Winding and Rewinding

I am having a mild case of startitis so I wound some yarn today.  I have been cleaning the house getting ready for Thanksgiving so I took a little break.  This yarn is for a pair of Maine Morning Mitts.  It is some handspun I spun up a few weeks ago.

This yarn is so I can keep working on my sweater.  This color is actually a turquoise.  The weather is kind of cold rainy/snowy mix so not so good for taking pictures.

These two yarns I actually rewound.  They were both failed sock attempts from this summer.  I am feeling a strong urge just to knit vanilla socks.  I am hoping that these two failed attempts at other patterns will make it to a couple of completed pairs.

I am still trying to finish my 10 shawls in 2010.  I have finished 7 of the ten.  I am not sure I am going to finish.  This will be #8 when it is done.  It is the Holden Shawl.  I am using Wisdom Yarns Poem Sock and a size 6 Knit Picks Harmony Needle.

I Promised a FO

I promised a finished project yesterday so here it is.  This is the scarf that I spun from Barley and Daisy's fleece.  It is just a fifteen stitch garter stitch scarf. I plan on giving it to my sister.  The size is 3 inches by about 6 feet.

I was able to get a very cute model to show it off.  He works for yogurt and candy corn.

Sock Knitting Black Hole

If you can't find me it is because I have entered the "knitter's black hole".  I keep knitting and knitting on this sock and it just doesn't seem to get any closer to being done.  I am always four more repeats from starting the toe decreases.  Hopefully I will find the exit soon.

I do have a finished object but as Ferb would say "Wait for it".

New Handspun

Sea Dreams Handspun 2.0  spun from a Gale's Art Corriedale Sibling.  This is a light worsted to a worsted weight yarn.  I plan to use it to make some fingerless mitts for my sister in law.

Garden Party spun from another Gale's Art Corriedale Sibling.  This a heavy fingering to sport weight yarn that I plan to use to knit a pair of socks.
