Between my mother visiting and getting sick...my knitting progress has been shot to hell.
I did manage a few things though.
I am almost done with Peapod..just got to sew in a sleeve and add the buttons. Tune in tomorrow for finished pics!
I swatched for Wicked..not only did I do the 4" square..but I also washed it! Maybe I can be taught after all! I got stitch gauge but my row gauge is off..I think I am going to forge ahead and see what happens...
I tried to start the Pirate Hat..I tried to make one previously and it was WAY TOO BIG. So I bought lighter weight yarn this time..not sure if that was the best idea..and now I got to decide if smaller needles (like 0's) or different yarn is the best choice..hmmmm.
I started the Forest Path Stole, I am halfway through the seed stitch border. I am loving the yarn, needles, gauge and pattern thus far...woohoo!
I found the Mystery Shawl Yahoo Group...and joined. LOL. I started late so I am behind, but I am having fun so far. It's a round shawl and I have never done that before. I am learning a lot.
I tought/ am teaching my mother how to knit toe-up socks. I think she's liking it.
On the UFO front:
I have worked steadily on the mitered blankie..not a lot to show yet..but I have done about 6 squares this month. hey, it's something! My plan is to try and do a square a day..and maybe allow a bit of time on Sundays for it.
Horrible pictures as usual, that's what happens around here when you take your pictures at night with horrible lighting. (Seems that's how all my pics get taken. Sorry)
Monkey socks from Knitty using Lorna's Laces in Mine Shaft. I hope to have these done by the end of the month. One, so I can gift them to my niece before she moves to Alberta, Canada (sob!). And Two, I want to finish them for the Sock a Month KAL I joined..(oh yeah..did I forget to mention I joined that as well?)
I think that's enought to keep me busy for a while. I am still working on the baby blanket as well...although I have ignored it the past few days. It's very close to being done, but it just makes me sick to look at it...maybe tomorrow I can face it again.
