Yay Sun!

So, we finally have sun!!!!!!!! wahoooo!!!!. Of course the sun also means that the cat is hogging up the sun, so all of these pictures also feature my lovely cat Ekaterina.

First off we have the baby blanket for my friends at the university who are going to be having a baby early in the late spring I believe. Its coming right along, however, I suspect that the stripes will stop acting so nicely very, very soon. But for the moment, they are absolutely lovely and the knitting is easy! Its in Bernat Baby coordinates self striping in Sprite and Sunny

Next up is the Monkey sock. Ekaterina is attempting to chew on my needles so I had to get this picture off quickly.

I love it, I love the colors,, I love the pattern, it knits up sooo fast. Its the Plymouth Sockotta which is a lovely cotton, wool, nylon blend.

Finally, yarn for my next set of socks. This is the Patons Grace in Tangelo Which is 100% Mercerized Cotton. I think its going to make very nice socks. I'm thinking I'm going to make either the Dublin Bay socks or the Kaylee socks.

I don't know how I got lucky enough to catch Ekaterina's cute little tongue in this picture, but there it is... isn't she the cutest cat ever :-).

So, the socks are DONE!!!!
I <3 them

For my first ever pair of socks I think they came out really, really well and I'm soooo hapy with them

And there was much dancing and celebrating and wearing of brand new socks!

Baby Blues

So, the baby blue jaywalkers are coming right along, I've turned the heel of the second sock and am finishing up the heel gusset, and I think that I'm in total, absolute, mad, mad love.

They're coming out great, they kinda quasi match, at least they're striping similarly, so I'm really happy.

These have kinda been my obsession at the moment, so I've really not been knitting much else. I finished another plain stockinette baby hat, but don't have pictures of it as of yet.

School is starting back into full swing this week, so there will probably be a lot less knitting, but I'll probably start having some more archaeologically oriented postings.

Baby Blue Sock done (well 1 of 2)

SOCK 1 is DONE! second sock is cast on, and I've almost got the ribbing done. I probably will have it done later tonight. The yarn started pooling kinda funny around the foot, but it still looks ok, so I'm not complaining. I'm really happy with how it came out.
