A Baby (Gasp) Blanket.
Just for a friend. Blue Sky Alpaca 100% cotton held double. I go through a skein a night watching TV, then switch over to a pair of socks. The pattern is Wool Leaves by Jared Flood. He does publish easy to read patterns and I am loving how this is coming along. I predict an FO by 3/1!

This is another pattern book that I received for Christmas. One sock done, the second is underway. Love the intensity of this color.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE this book?
The three hats that I've finished already this month are from this book. There are at least three other patterns in here that I am itching to cast on. They go so quickly, and I had two perfect skeins of Malabrigo in the stash for this one.

This yarn entered the house sometime after Christmas when I redeemed by $25 Loopy Ewe shopping credit. I decided pale pink is one color that I have very little of in my stash. So there it is. ShibuiKnits.

US 1 - 2.25 mm Started:
November 5, 2011 Completed:
January 31, 2012 Note:
Hubs came home from a business trip last night and promptly slid these on his feet. I will not see them again for a while (when I am sure they will be standing up by themselves on the floor of his closet, demanding to be washed!)

This will be Afshari by Hunter Hammersen, very soon. One can hope. This is some Lorna's Laces that has been in my stash for a very, very, VERY long time!

The Sock Mill
The Sock Mill is still churning away. I have to admit, this particular sock is trying my patience. The Medium weight yarn knits up into a very firm fabric, but hurts my hands because it is so stiff. Give me lightweight BMFA STR
any day please....

This is what I got for my birthday!
A very generous gift certificate that is going to increase my stash by a large amount! Whoo Hoo!

Seriously, he could not stop dancing around and I finally had to quit when both dogs got involved. Sorry. No pictures of that craziness.

Coraline is moving right along. The hem took the longest time, now I can sit down and knit a couple rows and set it aside knowing there is no time pressure on this one! Although I would like to finish it before the end of March!

Socks FO! (#1)
First finished pair of the New Year!
Pattern: Snow Petals by Lisa Stichweh Yarn: Zitron Trekking Hand Art Color: 505 Jamaika Needles: US 1 - 2.25 mm Started: January 1, 2011 Completed: January 19, 2012 Note: Things got really twisty with this pattern. Oh my goodness. I have to say that this Zitron yarn certainly distributes the color repeats in a pleasing manner.
Now I have to go dry my tears since the Wild broke my heart, again, last night.
