Summer of Socks 2009

I've started my sock for SOS 2009. Is this yarn beautiful or what? Sundara Yarn, 100% superwash merino, colorway Brambleberry. I'm using US 1 Signature DPNs. They are FANTASTIC. I love my Inox DPN but these are so pointy and just so beautiful to look at.

The pattern I'm using is the Baby Cable Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. This is the second time I'm using this pattern and I love it as much this time as last. I decided to do these toe-up this time starting with the cable row. They look good, I think. And I learned a new trick: figure-8 cast-on! A little dicey at first but I think I'm getting the hang of it, having done it twice because I didn't like the pointiness of the 8 stitch cast-on I used the first time. My feet are very box-like: toes are pretty much in a straight line across the top of my foot, hence I don't like a pointy toe.

Can't wait to get knitting on these later today.

SOS 2009 First pair finished

It may be stretching it a bit but I'm going to count these socks as my first pair of socks for SOS 2009.

These are Baby Monkey Socks from Sheri at The Loopy Ewe. Whipped these babies (no pun intended...) up over the weekend. They are for my granddaughter who will be making her appearance in October of this year. Hope she likes them!

Piddleloop bag...again...

I don't know how it happens but when I see there is an update in the Piddleloop shop I just have to go see what's there. This beauty will be coming to live with me very soon!

We have a new baby coming in October (congratulations daughter and son-in-law!!!) and I'm working on the Moderne Baby Blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I'm very pleased with the way this turned out. What do you think?

Thom's Afghan

There are MANY folks on Ravelry making an afghan for Casey's father, Thom, who had a terrible accident last year. People from are knitting, crocheting, and assembling 4x4" squares into 16x16" squares that will then be assembled into a huge blanket for Thom. I'm assembling for New Jersey and environs. Squares have started coming in and boy, are they gorgeous or what?

I've arranged them just to get an idea of how they're going to look together. Pretty good, if you ask me!! Thanks everyone.
