New Stuff

Ok, so I finally finished my Sockapalooza socks!!! yeah! I'm posting a picture here as my receiver doesn't have a knitting blog. I sent these to Anne. I knit the Hourglass Sock pattern from Magknits. I was a pretty easy pattern even though I had to rip back the second sock umpteen times. Due to my lack of paying attention. But in the end they came out good and I was happy with them. I will definately do this pattern again.

So now that is done I've been working on some WIP's and a new sock for me. No new pics on that yet. I did also receive my Harmony needles.. Love them! I love those very pointy tips.. makes doing SSK and k2tog a snap. !

Busy Busy Busy

This last month has been too crazy. For about two weeks I was busy canning various types of pickles and salsa. The weather has cooled off and I've been busy doing outside home improvement. I've been knitting on my late Sockapalooza socks. After about 3 rip back episodes I'm finally a repeat and a half away from the toe! Finally they are almost done. Seems like these socks were the most uncooperative socks ever! It's not like the pattern was that complicated either, pretty easy actually.. easy to mess up.

I also picked up an old WIP project that I hadn't touched in months. Its a Turtleneck pullover in Silky Wool. So far I only have the back done up to the armhole dec., I cast on for the front.

I ordered some size 1 Harmony Knitpicks circulars. I haven't received them yet but so far on Ravelry I keep hearing good things.

Well today I leave you with my garden loot. This year I ended up with Yellow, Orange, Green striped, Purple and red tomatoes.
