Goooooooooooal!

Yes! The camera has been found, and I have pictures to show!

First, my KWC project:

The team did their job and scored their first goal. Both sides done. Will do a 3 needle bind-off after I have finished knitting the sleeves because I'm not sure how long I will be making them.


The inside of the sweater. Started weaving in the ends.


Started some of the duplicate stitching on the ladybugs. It's going very quickly.


The sleeves are being knit as I type. Doing two at once since I need to increase every inch, that way the sleeves will come out identical. Now the only question, will I finish in time?

And now...drum roll please....

A Finished Project...

New socks for DS the Younger! Knit these in two days over the 4th of July festivities. Used Knit Picks yarn, Simple Stripes (now discontinued) in the colorway, Crayons on DPNs size 3. The pattern is the generic sock pattern from Melanie's site, http://pinklemontwist.blogspot.com It worked like magic.


DS the Younger likes them too. He hasn't taken them off all day. It's so nice to be appreciated.

...And a Half!

(Not the best pix, but it's hard to take a decent picture of your own foot unless you're double-jointed, which I am not.) I finished the first sock of my pair. Haven't cast on the second yet as I got distracted by DS the Younger's socks. Will cast on for the second as soon as my KWC project is done.

Peace out,
Mel
