Here are some FO's finally!

Soooo, see there really has been knitting. Two pairs of socks - and I don't think I showed my cashmere knee highs here, but they are on ravelry. The green and purple socks are my first opal socks - such pretty patterned yarn, the other set is the peppermint patty kit from Woolgirl - they are really pretty but the pattern was really picky (and I gave up on the feet and just knit them - I liked the yarn patterning better in the plain).

Then there are all the mitts. Two complete sets that are gifts and 2.5 unfinished sets of mitts in cotton. I can now say that I have mastered this pattern! Should have the left overs finished this weekend, which will be nice.

Since I have done so well with getting things done, I went ahead and cast on the large wings shawl from Vivian Hoxbro's book, Shadow Knitting and the Cleopatra socks from the Woolgirl sock club - stay tuned for updates.

I have posted twice in March - a standard that I hope to improve on!
Happy KNitting!

Its not like I don't knit...

Its not like I don't knit, but somehow the photo upload part of blogger stops my sharing said knits... Actually, I have come to the realization that I am a little over committed. There are a few things in my life that I could do without, so I am working very hard to re-evaluate my extra work activities and get rid of those that do not enhance my life. So far so good. Hopefully, this means that there will be more time to blog, keep up with ravelry, knit and see my husband.

In the meantime, there have been bunches of finished objects - 10 hats for knitogether, not photographed - the cashmere socks, done! - several pairs of mitts from the classes that I have been teaching, mostly done - peppermint patty socks, done (although I chintzed on the foot as I got sick of the pattern) - a couple misc. socks, done! - and there are several things on the needles... There have been so many socks and mitts, I am thinking its time to get back to a bigger project. I'll let you know how that goes...

Right now there are only photos of the cashmere knee socks - watch tomorrow for more finished project - and two posts in one month!! The photos aren't great, but that's what I get for using my phone...

Happy KNitting!!
