Knit! What else?
I have five Children in Common (CIC) vests done and in the mail today. They were rather addictive! Taking about a day to do each one, I kept thinking "hey, I have time/yarn for another!" The bottom three crazy striped ones were made from Reynolds Lopi that I found in a thrift store. The top two were done with a worsted and combined with a lighter weight wool yarn. The one with the fish on the pocket was my favorite. I dyed the grey yarn using blue,green, and purple Wilton's icing colors for the fish and water.
After finishing the vests I was at a standstill--no UFOs in sight. Time to cast on for socks. I've only done top down socks before, so decided to try Kim Salazar's Firefighters socks . Did the Figure-8 Cast-on for the first time (Okay, for the first thru fourth times, but I did get it finally.) Here's a picture showing how the cast-on looks after several rows, then after it's been tightened up. All that, and no Kitchnering involved!
