sticks and string
don't mean a thing
without the knots to bind them
but when they slip
from the damn stick
you know you'll never find them

The last project I finished was that cat bed that took me two months to make. And it was all red and brown and orange, so by the time I got done with it, I was all "OMG I NEED COLORS! And something I can finish inside of a month!" I took a shine to the Taos Felted Slipper Socks while I was looking around on Ravelry. And I had a skein or two of Taos in that brown/turquoise colorway I always like until I get it home lying around, so bonus! Then I went out to my LYS to find another color to twine with it, and I end up picking the two shades of Jaspe Wool that meant I would be knitting with all the colors in the world.

I have been horribly amiss at posting here! I comment and coo, but I haven't posted hardly anything. So, welcome to the wrap-up catch-up knitty pics post!

it's all behind the cut tag )

All caught up! I'm not a speedy knitter, haha. There's a sock on the needle now, but no pictures until it's done.

I made socks for my Dad!

socks for dad

Eesti Trail Hiking Socks, by Nancy Bush, pattern in Favorite Socks by Interweave Knits.
US3, Mission Falls superwash worsted in stone and spruce.

Mods: Very minimal! I didn’t do the snowflake pattern on the leg, but just the stripe pattern up top. I also did a wedge toe instead of the spiral toe, which made the sock too long. Or I made the sock too long, and it was easier to rip it back and graft it together, then do a wedge toe. One of those, you decide.

Toe and heel in contrasting color, obviously. Afterthought heel, which I love the look of, but hate the actual doing.

Anyway, very snuggly and warm sock, and now I want a pair for myself.

I just finished these and thought it would be a good time to post a pic of them. :)

As you can tell, that was technically an in-progress pic, although just barely. It seems like taking good pictures of socks has its own set of issues, so I don't get too many pics of my sock projects. Wouldn't sock blockers help my photo quality, though? Indirectly, I mean, by making the socks nice and flat and shaped.

EDIT: The pattern is Spring Forward from over at Knitty.

I finished these socks recently and wore them to Maryland Sheep and Wool yesterday.

Made with Noro Silk Garden Sock )

The pattern is from The Eclectic Sole, which I think is a fantastic book, even if the heel in this particular pattern is a bit tight for me given that I have really big feet.

Morsmordre! )

I've been knitting a lot of these miniature socks - I'm turning them into keyrings, and a friend is taking them to Azkatraz in LA in July to sell there. Mostly in Hogwarts house colours, of course, including House Sparklypoo, but I've done some in plainer colours.

And then the other night I had A Nidea, and charted this up and knitted it. It's amazing what one can do with only 20 stitches total to work with!
