I have actual knitting content. I bet y'all forgot I even knit at all. Just thought I was over here receiving lots of fun gifties. *L*
Well here are some pics of my knitting a few minutes ago to show proof of my knitting.
Well start off with the Patons SWS Drop Stitch Scarf. I've decided it will be my first item to go into my Dulaan box. :D I've committed myself to 5 projects.
I actually finished this a few weeks ago but haven't had time to post it.
Pattern: No real pattern. Just cast on however many stitches and k3, p1 and then when I was done dropped all the purls. There is a garter border at the end as I like those. :D
Yarn: Patons SWS.
It was a fun easy knit... until it came time to drop the stitches. This yarn loves itself and is a pain to force the stitches to drop. Ugh. Never again. Although I do like the way the loops are all soft on the reverse side. They look like a lambs fleece to me... so maybe not never. :P
Next up are my socks. I'm almost done with sock #1. Although I won't have the whole pair done by the end of October I will have ONE sock done! That's something. Oh hush.
I love the way my stripes are knitting up. I'm really enjoying this. :D
Here is an action shot of the sock on my foot. It is really hard to take a picture of your own foot, btw. It's not really a lumpy ill fitting sock. That's just because I was twisting around trying to take a good picture of it on my foot. Next time I'll ask the honey to take the picture. o.0
Finally I will say that my Gifted Upon Partner in the Knitters Tea Swap got her package. She got it a while back, but I've been busy/sucked/dead so I didn't mention it until now. Julie is a lovely gal and was a fun partner. :D Go check out her blog for all the gifties I sent her. It was muchly fun!
And with that I have to get back to it. I have had a pile of mail I need to get out sitting here for ages and ages. *waves @ E* Today is the day... or tomorrow. Depends on how much I get done before I fall over. :P
