Works in Progress

  • Delancey Cardigan in navy with light gray stripes
  • Cotty Socks in Kollage Yarns Sock-a-licious colorway Waterfall
  • a new teddy bear in tan and cream
Bad lighting this afternoon, so no in progress pics for you. Maybe tomorrow.

I am extremely pleased with the way the cardigan is turning out. Ditto the socks, even though the picot edge on my current sock didn't turn out quite as pretty as the one pictured in the pattern.

Having three simultaneous knitting projects makes deciding what to work on difficult. The teddy bear is closest to completion, but I think tonight I want to work on the socks.

Busy, Busy, Busy

I've done so much in the couple of weeks since I've posted here. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures for you. Don't hold it against me - everyone in my house had a stomach bug last weekend, and I just started working a second part time job in my undergraduate adviser's lab, so I'm working full time now. All of that plus a husband and a two year old doesn't leave a lot of spare time.

I finished my first pair of socks last weekend while recuperating, and they turned out great. I'll definitely be wearing them on cold winter nights (well, as cold as winter gets here, anyway, which isn't cold at all to northerners). I also made another teddy bear, which has also been sold. And another football. I also started on my cardigan, which is going to be amazing when I finally finish it. I've also started working on another zebra, and I have yarn in my knitting bag for another teddy bear (different color scheme this time). Timmy the Tiger sold today, so I want to go ahead and make another. Actually, I want to make two tigers, one for the little stash of toys I'm selling at Max's daycare and one for my Etsy shop. Plus two black cats for Halloween and one for my sister. I'll probably save that for her birthday in November. And socks... there are so many socks that I want to knit.

Dish Rag Tag has officially begun, and before I know it the box will be here, and I will be speedily knitting up a dish rag. I have ambitious plans to knit three sets of dish cloths as Christmas gifts, possibly using the Official Dish Rag Tag pattern.

So much knitting, so little time...
