Finally, some knitting
I've been so busy with other projects -- namely cleaning everything in sight -- that I haven't done much knitting. Just as well -- I'd have no tendons left in my hands had I kept up my crazy knitting pace!
Here are the things I HAVE done:
-Organized all cupboards and drawers at my house
-Lots and lots and lots of laundry
-Washed 20% of my windows
-Cleaned the living room
-Finally framed and put up wedding pictures! (You know, 15 months later...)
-Oh, and knit these:
They're house socks for my friend J., who is expecting in November.
Yarn: Knitpicks Swish (LOVE!)
Needles: Boye DPNs, size 3, set of 4 (including the bent one that ran into a recliner)
Pattern: Cabled sock pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks; cable with moss stitch panels pattern
Notes: 12 rows of 1X1 rib, plus 1 cable repeat (8 rows) formed the cuff. A regular flap-and-gusset heel and easy toe were used. I reversed the cable on sock #2 for symmetry. They're about a half-inch too short for me, because J. has a smaller foot.
Also on the needles is this:
It's the elephant from World of Knitted Toys. I actually have the head made, but I ran out of stuffing. The body took a whopping bag and a half of stuffing! I need to get over to Joann's and get more. But this sucker is HUGE! Over a foot long, and about a foot tall. Crazy!
Also, I have discovered I have floors. What a crazy concept!
