July Socks

I finally finished my Carson Socks. I wanted to have them done in June, but it just didn't work out that way. My FIL was kind enough to model them for me until I can get them to Carson. I used Seacoast Royalty Colorway and the Garter Stitch Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks on Size 1 Knitpicks Circulars.

Blue Dog

Well, not actually a blue dog, but a blue dog sweater. I have been experiencing low energy levels and really haven't felt like doing anything but reading the last couple of weeks. However, I have managed to make a little dog sweater using some of the yarn I received from my Secret Pal 9 Swap on Knitty. I haven't been able to get a hold of a dog to model it yet, so my stuffed cat, Furgie will have to suffice. This yarn was a lot of fun. It is from Cherry Tree Hill. I am back on my regular knitting schedule and hope to finish my current pair of socks by the end of the weekend.

New Secret Pal Stash

I've had an extremely busy weekend but I did manage to get to the post office yesterday. Low and behold I received my first package from my SP 9 pal from Knitty. I love everything she sent. She send some really cool yarns from Cherry Tree Hill and the Great Andirondak Yarn Company. She knows me so well! I love doing scarves and ponchos in multitextures. Also received a cute sheep tape measure and the Yarn Harlot Book Knitting Rules as well as some handy dandy knitting accessories like a pocket guide, needle inventory card and some needle holders. Thanks so much to my pal!

Inching Along

I've managed to make a little progress on my Tangerine Twist after having to rip it all out last week. I had been over analyzing the pattern so I made some adjustments the first time around that weren't needed. Now the pattern is starting to look like it should.

The Mighty Ox, Indeed!

Last weekend the Mighty Ox made his wrestling debut as tag team partner to Michael Cade. It was a very memorable moment!
