A Little Post

I am slowly working on a Camino Bubbles Scarf.  I took the stitch count down to 41 to make it as long as possible.  The marker is my progress so far today.
This is my current sock in progress.   This picture was actually taken Tuesday while I enjoyed a few minutes of quiet before I got my children up for the first day of school.  I am almost done with them now.

One and A Half

I have completed part of my goal.  I have finished one of the five projects.  Mrs. Watson is all finished and living in her new home at the yarn store.

Today, I really focused on my first Borscht sock.  When I started this morning I was still decreasing the gusset.  The first one is finished, I just finished sewing up the toe after I took the picture.  Guess I will cast on the second one.

Spin the Bin Revisited

This is a picture of my Spin the Bin before I started in January.   I have slowly been working on it through the year.

I am about sixty percent done.  I am on the eighth braid of the twelve I picked out.   I am excited to keep working on it until it is done, four and a half months to go.

A New Challenge

It has been forever since my last post.  The summer has flown by and lots of knitting was accomplished.  I hope to bring you all up to date as the month goes on with progress and finished objects from over the summer.

This is my work in progress challenge that I made for myself.  I took the picture a few days ago, and one of these projects is almost done.  There are five projects I want to get finished by September 15. There is a Mrs. Watson shawl, this is the one that is almost finished, two pairs of socks, a handspun Samadhi, and a Yarn Optimiser that I have caked the yarn to start.

I think Martina Behm is a genius.  I love how she designs patterns for mindless knitting and in the process make something that is easily wearable.  I have been knitting mainly socks lately.  I really wanted a project that was fun and not a sock.  I started this yesterday using some handspun from some BFL that I spun from Gale's Art.  I think the colorway is Blueberry Hill.  The stitch marker is where I was when I started this morning. I am excited to see how far I get today.

Spin the Bin Progress

I am making progress on my Spin The Bin challenge.   The pink and gold yarn was the Treasure Goddess batt.  I have finished the singles of the Teals Merino/Tencel blend.  I hope to get them plied sometime this week. The other two bobbins are Falkland from Fat Cat Knits in Ruby Truffle.  It was part of a mixed blessing club last year.  I have one more bobbin of that to finish before I ply.

World's Worst Blogger

 Not much blogging MOJO, but I have been knitting.  These are my February Desert Vista Dyeworks socks. I used Baa Baa Black Sheep and it is a plain vanilla sock.
These are the ones I knit for January.  The colorway is A Colorful Celebration.  These are also vanilla socks with a little bit of ribbing on the sides.

I have my color for next month picked out.

Just Keep Knitting, Just Keep Knitting

I am in the black hole of knitting but I must continue because the baby will be here soon.  The pattern is the Garter Ridge Baby Blanket.  The yarn is Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in Tropical Pink.

Another Sock in Progress

These are socks I started while I waited for the new year so I could start my Colorful Celebration socks.   I am doing them toe up as well.  The yarn is Ella Rae Lace Merino.  I just added a little ribbing to the David's Toe Up Cookbook pattern.  I have started the second sock and hope to have them done by the end of January.

An Old Finished Object

These are my Red Raider socks that I finished in October.  They are Red Raider socks because these colors are our school colors and the Red Raider is our mascot.  I like to wear them on game days when I remember.
This is one of the two pairs of socks I currently have on the needles.  The yarn is Desert Vista Dyeworks in A Colorful Celebration.   I am using my Vanilla sock recipe but doing them toe up.

Spinning the Bin 2015

I have decided to participate in the Spin the Bin Challenge this year.  This is about 46 ounces of fiber that I hope to finish by the end of 2015.
