Tweaking Flower with Beads

Added a few beads for some sparkle. I think I'm done tweaking the bag and am pretty pleased with it. It is quite thick. Posted by Picasa

Two Socks Finished, But Not a Pair!

Color Blox Sox from Six Sox KAL. The striped is Trekking XXL and the salmon is Lang Jawoll. Knit on #0 dpns, 64 st. I am a toe-up sock knitter, normally, but I have never done the garter stitch cuff, and it is very nice, particularly with striped yarn.

The next sock is the "Fanning the Flames" sock. It fits very well, which suprised me. After knitting half the sock, I realized that I could use both ends of the yarn to knit successive fans, which cut the number of ends to weave in by half! I love it.

Fanning the Flames Socks

This is a pretty interesting way to make socks, but I don't think I'll make another pair. Also I'm concerned about the longevity of these guys. Using #1 dpns with Twinkletoes from Joslyn's Fiberfarm. Posted by Picasa

After Blocking

It is very delicate indeed and one incident with a zipper and it's all done. Posted by Picasa

Shetland Triangle

Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark from Wrap Style. Total weight is 0.8 oz of very fine cobweb wool knit on #5 US needles. 40" wide x 25" long.

Bind off with double yarn, using Nancy Bush's Estonian Lace bind off and #6 US needles.

First use of lace blocking wires and they are WONDERFUL. Posted by Picasa
