I feel like I've used this title before, but so be it...
First, my FO report!
Pattern: mine using Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns - cast on 76 stitches, trad. heel flap. I did do more of a square toe than I have been doing as I like it on my Jaywalkers.
Yarn: Trekking XXL in colorway 126.
Needles: Susan Bates US 1's DPNs set of 5
Thoughts: Love this yarn. I was excited to cast on for these after finishing my sockpal socks as I knew how soft it would be. And so pretty! And, in total nerd disclosure, I loved seeing what color was coming up next! I also am inordinately pleased that I managed to match up the stripes. So cool! Now if it would just cool down so I could stand to wear wool socks...
I bought some Trekking from an ebay seller who later turned out to have only had one ball and listed two, so she gave me the choice to take anything from her shop for the price I had paid for the Trekking (and I had only paid $7.35 for the ball of trekking, with shipping!), so I got me some of this:
Opal in the Chameleon colorway. Yum.
Next, my new sweater!
No, I haven't finished Ribby, but I could resist the call of this yarn no longer! It is sooooo soft! And I love the color.
This is what she will be when she grows up. From the Fall 02 Interweave. Love the collar. Of course, it is all 1x1 rib, but it goes much more quickly than 2x2 for some reason.
I forgot to mention yesterday the planned project for some of the pink yarn in that picture from Tuesday. It is 3 balls of Cascade Fixation and it is for a secret project.
Speaking of secret projects, I knit one up for my sister recently! I sent it off with her cabled hat. It is in Av's colors (her favorite hocky team). Yes, many muppets died to make this! Love you sis!
I may have cast on for another pink project today....I shall reveal all tomorrow!
