Making this ^ with this:

I am learning hairpin lace, I am glad I am, but I’m not sold on it as a technique yet. It is a tad fiddly.

I am still working on socks I have no pictures for and my sweater. I have finished a scarf, but I’m not ready to show that one yet 😉

UPDATE! I totally for got to post the picture of my new earring frame!

I had the frame and used some leftover sock yarn and I even had the staples to put it all together!  I saw this on Pinterest a while back and have been wanting to do it, when I found some extra frames I set to work.

With the start of a new round at one of my Ravelry groups, the WIP are multiplying faster then tribbles.  This is the third time knitting this, because I am developing a pattern for it.

Next is another pair of socks.  Who are they for? Who knows yet. (sorry no pics of them yet).  I am making a leafy scarf from the home spun I showed last week.  I have also started a new sweater, here are my gathered materials.

I have a few other ideas, but this is just what I have started.




Oh, my socks! May 16, 2012

I know I go on ad nauseum about socks.  So just a picture.

See?!?!  Now if only you could feel them on!  They are Horseshoe cable socks from Judith Durant in the book 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders.  I used Marks & Kattens Fame Trend.  Lets take another look…

I am also working on a test knit for a fellow Raveler.  I can’t show progress right now but soonish I will be able to share.

Here are some of the things I have finished lately.

Some socks for Gavin from Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Graffiti Colori 6 Ply.

I crocheted a lace bowl and stiffened it.  This one was gifted to my mom.

This Tribble is destined to leave me to a new home!

I am still plugging away at my top down sweater and Easter eggs.

I finished this little shawl, really its no more then a neckerchief, but I used the hand spun yarn I showed you back here!

I am currently working on a pair of socks for Gavin, spinning some fiber that I hope to turn into socks, and designing a few other things.  I hope to be able to at least show you the socks next week.  I want to give a shout out to the lovely place that I got all the scrumptious fiber for my crafting.  The Fold is a great place in the country.  Toni, The owner is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.  Her Husband is great too!  The bonus is Eric, the uber gentle German Shepard.

I am in a group on Ravelry that you complete projects for points.  It is their off month and I haven’t really been working on much, to save it up for when when they are back on (only have to wait till February first-woo hoo!) I do have one finished pair of socks and I have been working on my Easter eggs.  The Socks are my own design in my favorite Two-at-a-time technique.

The color in this picture  is all wrong, this is what the yarn really looks like:

Isn’t that nicer? 🙂
