since the last post is in the pictures. The first shot shows two more mitts started. I've been working these Magic Loop and decided I could knit two at once.

This is the blue pair that were in progress last time.

This is the beginning of a pair of Jaywalker socks. I am using the yarn from a STR sock club kit that just didn't suit me after I was most of the way finished with it. So I ripped them and balled them up until I decided what to do with the yarn. It's the colorway-Walking on the Wild Side in the Silkie Socks That Rock. Very nice feeling.

That's all I have for now.

Will work on the blanket some tomorrow.

Catching up...

Joan suggested from my last post (and now that I look at it again with less tired eyes) that the pink dishcloth was Snoopy in his airman's cap from the cartoon strip Peanuts.

These top two pictures are of my Hemlock Ring Blanket progress. This will likely be a present. I plan to make another in green Encore that I have in stash also.

These are the fingerless mittens I have made so far using Opal yarns from stash using the Driving Mitts pattern from the 2007 Knitting Pattern-a-Day calendar. I am knitting on the first of the blue pair. All the yarns are using double strands.

I have this week off from school for our Fall Break. I plan to use this time to catch up...on housework, knitting, appointments. Wish me luck!
