I switched to working on the second Summerfield sock.

Got past the heel on the second Summerfield sock.

I then switched to working on a baby hat for Sheri’s Loopy Ewe Second Quarter Quarterly Challenge. I had one skein of a very soft merino superwash, so I used this pattern and US 7 and 8 needles.

Saturday, 9:00pm:

I completed the baby hat. Teddy asked to model it.

Doesn’t really fit him, does it? He thought it might make a nice cave:

Then he tried it at a rakish angle:

I finally gave up on him as a model and popped it over a cannister:

After I finished the baby hat, I started an afghan square for Laura’s Rebuilding Greensburg project.

Sunday, 9:00am:

Completed the square.

I made this from my own handspun. I was digging around, looking for a pretty single skein of worsted weight wool to use for an afghan square, and came across a 50 gram ball of my handspun. Can’t remember where the roving was from. It knit up far prettier that it looked in the ball! It’s also very soft and cushy, so I’m very pleased with it.

I used the formula on Laura’s page, linked to above, with a US 7 needle. The square is 8″ along one side, as requested.

So . . . what am I knitting now? Tell you in the next blog entry! icon smile Weekend Timeline

WendyKnits Blog Facelift

Daisy told me to go ahead and post today in Movable Type — she’s still got a kink or two to work out in the migration to WordPress. All hail Daisy! icon smile Weekend Timeline

As I mentioned in the quickie post yesterday, we may experience some downtime and you may not be able to leave a comment at some point when she disables commenting. And you may need to re-sub in Bloglines or whatever reader you use. But soon I’ll have a shiny new WordPress blog here.

  6. The square looks so gorgeous! But I think that the Summerfield sock is my favorite. It’s just so darn cheery. :) I remain in awe of your knitting capacity. Any lace in your future since it’s such perfect warm-weather knitting?

  7. I love wordpress to bits. Hope you will too. :)

    WOW! Seeing you whip through and finish multiple projects. What were your thoughts on the Grasshopper sock? Do they stay up on your ankles? Did you have to adjust the pattern? Haven’t started mine yet until I get such info since I have to adjust my socks quite a bit. BTW, good luck with the new blog.

  9. Wow! You got a lot done! Love the hat for the Quarterly Challenge. I have one packaged up and in my bag ready to mail tomorrow, too.

  10. My favorite picture is Teddy with the hat at a rakish angle – he is quite debonair!

    Your handspun is beautiful, I love the way the square looks.

    Good luck with the rest of the move. At least while you’re waiting, you can cuddle with Lucy and knit …

  11. The handknit square is lovely & I really like the Grasshopperr socks.

  12. Wendy I can’t thank you enough. Your square will be a beautiful addition to the Greensburg afghan project and the links on your blog posts have really gotten the word out. I have had SO many people writing and commenting that they are sending squares because they saw the link here. Thank You Thank You Thank You!! I can’t wait to squeeze your square. :)

  13. I need to thank you, too. I’ve made several pairs of socks for my husband by your toe-up pattern, and just completed one with the new heel. He is so pleased with the look and the fit, and so am I. What an accomplishment, so thanks again!

  14. Hmm, Lucy might be on to something there… Gorgeous square!

  15. I subscribe to your feed with Google Reader and had no problems! Just thought I’d let you know.

  16. Wowee! What a difference! I just caught site of the post I missed, which probably explains this ;-) I like the “cave” we all need a snuggly place to crawl into-Right Lucy?

  17. It works! Great new look to Wendyknits!
