Aria has decided on sock knitting for her olympic knitting. They will be her first socks - go Aria!
Sherrill is working on the Airy Scaf from LMKG, some lovely socks and she made two "go knit" bags - love them!
Theresa has been in deep training this week - she found some help with reading her pattern, ripped her Flora and continued work on her hat and Winter Folly. Whew!
Tara is working on a beautiful Noro cardigan.
Chris blocked her Kiri - it is gorgeous!
Laura has cast on for two new pairs of socks!
Erica finished up a lovely multi-directional scarf!
E started her Leaf Lace Pullover out of her own handspun! Looks great!
And I actually finished something for myself! My first FO that I get to keep this year! And I love it!!!!
(Sorry for the crappy bathroom-mirror shot - The Husband is at work).
Pattern: Turtleneck Shrug by Teva Durham from Scarf Style
Yarn: Knitpicks Merino Style in Petal - 6 skeins
Needles: Clover Bamboo DPN US 7
Dates: Started early Jan, finished Saturday February 4.
Mods: I used a DK weight yarn, pattern called for worsted. I really wanted to use this yarn though, as it is so freaking soft.
Thoughts: I think it turned out really well. I didn't feel the need to add stitches, as it is ribbed and would stretch. And I really like the way it fits - not baggy, but not tight either. I put it on for this picture about three hours ago and have yet to take it off. Did I mention that it is so freaking soft? I cannot wait to wear this all the time. So worth the hours of endless ribbing for the final product. Go make yourself one now!
Yippee - the first "not a gift" for myself! And I'm nearly halfway through the leg on my second Jaywalker - trying to finish it up in time for the Olympics.
I somtimes feel bad about having so many projects on the needles, but it sure is nice to have so many finished at the same time! Makes one feel very productive!
