Finished two pair of fingerless mitts this week. They are the Driving Mitts from the 2007 Knitting Pattern-a-day calendar, Feb. 10 & 11. I just need to weave in the ends. I'm using up some of my Opal stash for these. They will be Christmas presents.

My Monkey socks were finished last night and I am wearing them today!

And, one week later

Awww, isn't this cute! I caught our dogs, Sabrina and Rusty, lying side by side on the kitchen floor this morning. They get along very well and seldom fight.
These are my Monkey socks. Here they are ready for the toe decreases, which is what I am working on at the moment. They should be ready to wear tonight. For these I used Cherry Tree Hill yarn in the Blueberry Hill color.
I forgot to post these as a finish. These are the Lombard Street socks that I finished last week. Above is the close up of the patterning. I used STR yarn in Onyx.
I didn't take the pattern all the way down to the toe on these because the cable would have made them too bulky in my shoes.

OK, back to working on the toe dcreases in my Monkey socks!

What I'm working on right now

Here is two repeats of my Monkey sock. I decided to go with the Blueberry Hill colorway of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. I think it is looking pretty good!
Also on the needles, is a baby afghan using some Plymouth Encore Colorspun in this color...
I think it may be the Baby Girl Twist color but I'm not sure. It's for a baby girl anyway so that is good. I really like this knitted ripple pattern. Only two rows to remember, except at the beginning and end.

So I was thinking...

about using one of these yarns for my next pair of socks. I am going to knit Monkey from Knitty. Here is the link
The yarn colors are Gypsy Rose, Martha's Vineyard, Blueberry Hill. I was leaning towards the Blueberry Hill but I'm not sure. What do you think?

A lot of catching up...

I haven't posted since New Year's Eve, I think I need to catch up with what I've done since then. I have made two more pair of felted clogs... Before...and
I have made one pair of fingerless mitts for the upcoming Christmas.
I finished an extra long pair of socks for me. They stay up quite well, surprisingly.
We had a little bit of snow last week. Here is Sarah with her mini snowman. She made two of them.
Here is the latest pair of socks I am working on. It is the Lombard Street pattern but I am not continuing the pattern down the instep because I don't like the indentations down my foot.
I will need to cast on for another pair of fingerless mitts because I want to knit at least one pair a month so I have enough for presents at Christmas.
Hopefully, I will post sooner than a month later.
