Finishing Touches



Haven't I mentioned Mossy? It's for a pregnant friend. I couldn't decide which (there are two) so I kept it a surprise. I'll give it tomorrow, so now she knows. The beige is the Brooks Farm yarn I frogged a while ago and the yellow is Lorna's Laces. The Brooks Farm is a merino silk blend, so it's not washable. Both friends know how to take care of wooly items, though, so I'm not worried it will be cared for.

I also finished knitting Page 18 Elephante, but I can't crochet (I'm all thumbs). I can't make the ears. Rachel said she'd make them for me. I just have to get the materials and instructions to her before I head to Michigan.

I'm on the cuff of Stef's sock. I am using the same stitch pattern as I used on his scarf. I like it. It isn't making that cool snakelike zigzag pattern, which I didn't expect, but I am liking the variegated yarn with garter stitch, which I also didn't expect. I'll probably finish the first sock this week, since it is the only project on the needles. Stef has some large feet, though, so the second may take a while. I wish he could try them on for me. I'm worried that they are going to be too large.

Friday is frogging day. I can't wait. Perhaps I'll take video.

Crumpets is very pretty! I wouldn't have thought something like that would work well in knitting, but it shows what I know :-D

Crumpets did turn out very pretty. I changed the bottom (darn crochet), but I think the fake-picot edge looks nice. It'll probably be too big for Renee right now, but it will eventually fit.

awesome - nice work on both. Crumpets turned out so nicely! I finished one jaywalker sock! it's kind of... baggy on the arch area. and slightly askew at the toe (like it twists a little as it goes to the toe). Who knows. I'll start #2 soon :P
