Lots of Stuff

I have a lot of pictures to share today:

Here is Martha's finished scarf she made for Tom.
Notice how neat the back is.

Ruth's scarf - in person it is much more wonderful than the picture - remember, this is the
yarn she dyed.

Ruth is making the Gentleman's Sock from Yarn Harlot. the sock is really much
nicer in person. Guess what! Martha is making the same socks. When they
both send pictures, I'll post them side by side (hint - girls - send finished sock
pictures when done).

My finished Jaywalker socks. Made with merino/tencel yarn. I love this
yarn. It's soft, and shiny and sturdy. It's not squishy, but that's ok,
cause they stay up. The yarn is really a soft brown, with a l ittle cream
and gray. I started these when we went to Martha's and just finished.

It's a good thing these are done. I haven't made too many socks for myself, and my
favorite pair is getting worn out.

I finished Joe's brioche hat , made out of Prime Alpaca
that I got at the Hemlock Fibre Fair in 2006. Pattern is
Elizabeth Zimmerman. Yarn is
leftover from the sweater I made. I wish you could touch is sooooo soft! A Christmas present for Joe.

I have finished Tiffany's shrug, from Lace Style, made with Goby cotton. Very shiny, nice finished object. She has not been home long enough to pose. The yarn was like knitting
with 6 strands of fishing line all at once...will not use it again, though I do love the
final project.


I have been liking my sweater again, and have been working on
the sleeves. If you will recall, the sweater is sleeveless, but I'm
adding them.

I made a baby bib for my friend Lizzie who is due in July.
I have to finish the Icord around the edge and the tie - probably
2 more hours and it will be done. This is from One Skein, and
probably for a 1 year old.

Phew! Yes, even though I was not blogging, I was still
knitting. Thanks to the guest knitters in this issue! ha!

We had mom and Joe's birthday a couple of weekends was had by all.

That's it from knitatation for today......more stuff coming this
I love the weekends! yea!
