It's show-and-tell time, folks! It seems like I've found a few finished items that haven't made it to my blog.
First, my most recent FO:
That's right, my socks. These are 6SoxKAL from.....May? April? Anyway, they're done. I've been quite happy about them, too. Nice and springy using sock yarn from Ellen's Half-pint Farm.
I had vague thoughts (that I always get this time of year but never follow through) that I could enter them in the county fair.
Well, I had them both on my feet for about 30 seconds before I saw this glaring error:
See it? On the inner side of the left sock I only did a purl one, while on the inner right edge I did a purl 2. (Not a chance that I'll rip it out....)
Okay, then. A blue ribbon and a cash prize of a whopping $5 is out of my reach on this one.
Here are more 2 pairs of CIC socks.
At this point I should mention that none of these items have been blocked. Any funny looking shapes will become perfect when the magic blocking takes place. (I can dream, right?)
Here's the current CIC challenge--fingerless mitts. These are Fetching from Knitty.
Finally, here's the end result of my log cabin sweater. If you may remember, I had a variegated square for the center. I ripped it all out and started again with the green. (Just a side note: I've never gotten into quilting because of the exactness required in getting the corners to get so precisely matched and sewn. So what's up with my corners? This is KNITTING, not QUILTING! Nice corners should NOT be part of the equation.)
This was really a fun knit. It's one of those "wait, just one more side" kind of knits. I figure that I can make it bigger easily by going around more, right?
Ok, folks....show-and-tell time is done. Now it's time for snack!
