Despite being in “the blahs” lately, I have getting quite a bit of knitting done. I have actually been knitting a couple of things for myself.
I started a pair of socks during our trip to Yosemite, so these will henceforth be called my “yosemite socks.” When I started them, I was too lazy to knit a gauge swatch, so I figured if the cuff was big, they would be for Evan and if it was too small for him, they would be for me. He tried to cram his foot into them, but the sock was too small, so this pair will be for me. I am knitting twin rib pattern from Sensation Knitted Socks, using Trekking XLL 108 colorway.
I also started working on the bottom cable for the Samus Cardigan. This is my first time knitting cables and I am finding them to be alot of fun. I am knitting the sweater in knit picks wool of the andes using the color stream. Here’s close-up of the cables.
I have been planning to knit socks for my dad for his birthday at the end of the month. I finally started them last Wednesday. I’m using the “classy slip-up” pattern from Knit Socks. The yarn is bearfoot yarn from mountain colors, using the red tail hawk colorway. The socks are going quickly, or I am spending too much time lately knitting.
Finally, I have almost finished knitting this sushi wallet using a kit that from pick-up-sticks. Their patterns are too cute. I just need to attach the sushi and sew in the zipper.
Once I finish the socks for my dad, I plan to start knitting pretty pink baby things for my friend, Dr. YiKeS.
