Uh Oh, Who's that, um, guy?

Hey, who's that messing with my center-pulls? :(


Legwarmers and Charts

Well, I am planning on doing the legwarmers from Handknit Holidays. But, I wanted to modify the chart to be less "Christmas-y" and more anytime. Here is what I have come up with. The ribbing at the top and bottom will be done in the brown color.

I also think I am going to try this in knitpicks Merino Style DK weight. So in order to make sure the colors look OK I have constructed this image of the chart using the pictures of the yarn from the site. What do you all think?



Tonight I finished my fingerless gloves.

Pattern is from: Holiday Knits.
Yarn: Trekking XXL
Needles: size 3 dpns (set of five) and one size 0
yes thats right six needles...

Ok, I was using two as stitch holders...but still, thats alot of pointy sticks!

Colorwork Challenge

I have joined the Stranded: Colorwork Challenge!

What are your projects for this knitalong?

My first project is going to be:
Eunny's awesome Endpaper mitts

After that I plan to move onto various projects from Handknit Holidays but with my own pattern designs. Particular projects that interested me are the cute gift bags and the leg warmers.

My dream colorwork project is the deep scoop neck sweater from the fall 06 Vogue knitting magazine. One day I will get to it :)

Is this your first colorwork project? If it isn't, what was your first, and has it survived the test of time?

This will be my first colorwork project, but definitely not my last!


Socks Socks Socks

Here are my finished Jaywalkers!

In addition to finally finishing that second one, I have started the second of the Seal Rock socks. The first of the pair are already on the cuff, and awaiting simultaneous knitting till the end of the yarn.

The other object I am working on: a vest from RYC Classic booklet. The entire booklet is using wool/silk, but I had all this Debbie Bliss Cash Cotton, so I thought I would try it out. It is going really fast for a 2x2 rib.
