My current work in progress:

1. Woodfords, designed by Elizabeth Doherty, knit from Madelinetosh Merino Light in the "paper" colorway on U.S. size 3, 5, and 7 needles.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Back to What Passes for Normal

It was back to work today for me. Whee.

And back to my regularly scheduled knitting projects. I don’t believe that I ever showed you that I completed my first Bamboo sock:

And a close-up:

I finished that last week before I left for Oklahoma. And I’ve made some decent progress on the second sock:

I’m also knitting on my Two-Thirds shawl, though you probably can’t really tell that I’ve made any progress, given its blob-like nature.

Last night I gave Miss Lucy a special gift:

Mousie102709 240x160 Back to What Passes for Normal

This is a mousie knit by Keri. The pattern is from my “what to do with leftover sock yarn” class, and Keri whipped out two mice at blazing speed. She says her favorite part of the pattern was the direction “decrease for the butt.”

The mouse is a gift for Lucy from Keri’s boy kitty Slick, a demonstration of his undying love for her.

Isn’t that romantic?

Parade of WIPs

I currently have an almost-unheard-of-for-me three knitting projects in progress. Let’s review, shall we?

SIP101409 160x240 Parade of WIPs

This is my traveling sock which is growing very slowly. (And I don’t seem able to take a non-blurry photo of it.) I started it on my trip to Virginia Beach last month and then stopped working on it when I got back home. It did come with me to Florida last weekend and I managed a few inches of knitting in-between doing classes, etc. And I haven’t touched it since I got back. But it will accompany me to Oklahoma City next weekend (October 22 – 25) so I may actually finish it. Then I need to cast on for the second sock.

Psst! — info on my visit to Oklahoma City is here.

Next up, is the lace cowl/wimple:

This is my current commuter knitting and as you can see, it is almost done. I’m in the boring part of it, so I’m afraid it grows slowly as I am sometimes tempted to sleep on the train instead of knitting mindless stockinette in the round. But I should be able to suck it up and finish it in the next day or so.

And this is my at-home project:

Shawl101409 240x160 Parade of WIPs

My Two-Thirds Shawl. It stayed home last weekend so I’ve not made a whole lot of progress. I picked it up again yesterday and did some work on it, but I’m at the point where the rows are getting mighty long, so it doesn’t look like too much progress each day.

Yarn and needles used for each project are listed in the “Work in Progress” box at the top of the page. icon smile Parade of WIPs
