It's Alive!

Yep, Cassidy lives again!
I had to get a new size 7 circular before I could continue. So, with that done, i am rocking along with the right front panel. Just have that, the sleeves and the hood left to do. Then I get to seam it all together. Ugh, not very good at that part yet. Maybe I will be by the time I'm finished with this...

Fingerless Mitts

I knit a pair of mitts today. The pattern is Evangeline.
They were so quick and easy. I only made the wrist length, they are for a friend's daughter, who is only 11. I think I may make the elbow length for myself.

Sock-aholic

Ok, I admit it. In fact I may have admitted this before. I love knitting socks! This time I'm trying to wing it. I have two hanks of Happy Feet I bought months ago. I had planned to make the hub's first pair of socks from them. That didn't happen, so I'm using them now.

I also made a pair of fingerless gloves for a friend's daughter. I made a scarf for her dad and she absconded with it. So I've made her a gift so she'll give her dad his scarf back.

Contest

I stumbled upon a contest via another blog. Perversia from Ravelry linked to the contest. Justine is running the contest on her new blog.
Post a comment about your favorite literary character, and why that character is your favorite. I read a few of the comments and there have been some interesting replies.
Oh, if you do pop over and leave a comment, would you mind mentioning that you got there from here? Thanks!

Hedgerow Socks




Finished them about 10 minutes ago! I do like the pattern, except for the round toe. I think next time I'll just graft the toe.

More socks

I started the Hedgerow socks on Christmas Day. It's a pretty quick knit. I've enjoyed it so far. Just finished the first sock. I'm using Knit Picks Essential Tweed in Lumberjack, a dark green. I must say I love this yarn. It is sooooo soft. It feels nice in my hands so I think it will feel good on my feet.

I'm still unpacking and getting settled so I hadn't picked up the knitting since Christmas Day, until last night. It felt good to get back to it. I was having withdrawal symptoms, shakes, jitters, nervous twitching...you get the idea. LOL
