#@$%@# Sock

Posted in February, KAL, Knitting at 10:20 pm by myknittedempire

As I may have mentioned one of my goals for the stash-along was to complete the other Lego sock this month, and I may have also mentioned I have been doing everything but  knit that sock!

Last night I managed to finish the gusset increases and turn the heal, so now I only have the leg to go. I forgot to do the increases in the leg of the last one, so I’m trying to work out what to do this time. If I put the increases in then I should rip the other one back and include the increases in that one also, sigh.

 I hate socks!! but i must finish this one (and in fact 2 other pairs), I think the finishing is good for my soul even if I don’t like it. This sock must be finished this week so at least the end is in sight!

ready, set, Cast on

Posted in February, KAL, Knitting at 11:30 pm by myknittedempire

Yes, I know this is not what I should be doing, but my desire not to knit the sock that i should be knitting that I keep casting on new things, I have cast on a baby jacket, using some rare yarns in a gorgeous amethyst colour, Also cast on a Jacket for myself.

I really must get these socks done, it was my stash-along goal for Feb, and I would like to achieve it.

I had a nice weekend, had coffee, watched TV, did some knitting, had a bunch of friends over for a BBQ on Sunday.

But I am so tired today and my throat hurts, trying to work out if i should go home to bed…

Fetching Fetchings

Posted in February, Knitting, photos at 1:58 am by myknittedempire

Here are my fetchings, yes i know this is not knitting I am ment to be doing, i think I may have to give up on the stashalong as i cant seem to get the progects I intend to knit finished but instead start new things, which is ok because I’m still knitting from the stash.

For these I used a ball of Tofutsies, I used it 3 strands at a time to get gauge, i am quite happy with them but the yarn lost quite a bit of dye when i soaked them.

They have now been posted to chilly Scotland

I’ve got the bug

Posted in February, Knitting at 11:15 pm by myknittedempire

I’ve got the bug again, with the knitting! Yay.

I have cast on a pair of fetchings for my sister and am just loving the knitting! I went to the library yesterday and borrowed a heap of knitting books, our public library has really increased its knitting section, which is great.

I am on a deadline for the fetchings so i happily was knitting away at a bbq i went to yesterday, ahhhh the knitting bug is back and I am pleased.

Back to the fetchings….
