What’s on Your Needles?

It’s that time again!  Time for me to be a nosey so-and-so, and for you to tell me what you’re working on.

But fair is fair, so here’s what I’ve been working on.  I’m on a bit of a sock kick these days.  I just finished blocking a pair of socks (made with KnitPick’s Stroll in Tree Fort).  I absolutely love the colorway when it is in a ball, but I don’t love how it knit up.  I definitely picked the wrong pattern for variegated yarn.  It’s all weird and pool-y, and the shell texture I knit in isn’t really visible when they’re worn.  Oh well.  At least they’re warm and cozy.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And, yesterday I cast on for a belated birthday gift for my friend Shirley.  She wanted slipper-socks in grey.  Ask and ye shall receive!  These are knitting up thick and super-cozy looking with Patons Classic Wool DK Superwash in Dark Gray Heather on size 5 needles.  It’s weird, knitting socks for someone with little feet at such a big gauge.  My typical socks use 60 stitches, but these only use 40.  I’m flying through!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’ve shown you mine, so now you show me yours!  What do you have on your needles?  Send me a photo, and I’ll put it up on the blog next week!

    I am working on two things:

    1. Your grape vine socks, appropriately knitted in wine colored sock yarn.

    2. A scarf i am knitting in seed stich (at least that’s what I think it’s called) knitted with baby alpaca left overs that I purchased from a yarn shop on Whidby Island for $5. I thought it was quite a good deal.
