whoot! pictures!

ah the sun and moon are in alignment so that my pictures went seamlessly from crappy camera to stressed out computer. So let's take a looky see at how far I'm along on non gift knitting:

The Angora Cable and Lace Cardigan is slowly progressing. Okay, maybe not slowly, let's say "steadily". I enjoy the cable section a lot, but the stockinette sections can be a bit more of a challenge for me. However, the yarn is so lovely to knit with, I'm plugging along.

These are the main socks I've been working on. Some Blue Moon Fiber yarn in the Seal Rock colors. It's the same slip stitch pattern I did the Claudia Handpaints yarn in. I've discovered that the slip stitch pattern only works with yarns that the colors don't stack. I tried maybe 3 or 4 different hand painted yarns (including an other Blue Moon Fiber yarn called County Clare) and if the colors stack at all, the slip stitch pattern gets lost.

This is the yarn I bought from Fearless Fibers. I looove the yarn and the colors. I like the pattern, but again, not a good match. As you can see from the photo, the needles have already been pulled out from the sock. It was decided last night at SnB that the Diamond Fantasy Scarf will show the yarn off to what it deserves.

So let's see, there has been some other progress on some other projects, but can't talk about those. I plan on doing a little of this and a little of that today. Maybe run to the grocery store or something. It's a crappy day out there today. Seems like a nice day to stay in and knit...

Happy Knitting

  1. The Angora cardigan looks beautiful as well as those slip stitch socks. What pattern where you using on the socks you frogged for the shawl?
    I do think you made a good choice to make a shawl with that yarn it looks like it has such georgeous colors.

  2. The question is- have you rolled around naked with the angora yarn yet??? :-)

  3. I have been reading your blog, and I love,love your slip stitch socks. I was wondering if you would share the pattern. I see that you got it from the yarn gallery-do they have a website? Thanks.

  4. I was going to say, if that's what you call knitting slowly, then I am creeping and crawling along! The pearly gray angora is luscious.

  5. Looks like you did a lot of knitting on Labor Day weekend! Such pretty colors and I agree, the yarn that you frogged will look pretty in a shawl.

  6. I just had to poke my head in and say Thank You, not only for posting the photos of my Saltwater Taffy sock yarn on your blog, but also for showing it your friend Theresa! She has a skein of lovely sock yarn on her way to her now and she let me know you had referred her. Much appreciated.

    And ... LOVE your blog! Your knitting is just lovely!
