Down at Fraggle Rock...

My daughter Megan and I watched that show all the time when she was younger. I kind of miss it now. Anyway, I finished up the toes of the Fraggle Squiggle socks tonight. They are ready to wear!

A week

has gone by and I started another pair of socks. These are the Lacy Rib socks from Socks From the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson of WendyKnits.I finished kitchernering the toes of these socks today. They are Spring in Your Step socks by Kerry Crone. I used Enchanted Knoll Farm Hand-dyed Fingering Sock Yarn in the
Esmaralda colorway. I used KnitPicks 2.0mm circular needles and knitted using the Magic Loop method with both ends of the yarn to knit both socks at once.

I am still working on the Fraggle Squiggle socks and then the Lacy Ribs. I also pulled my Orkney Shawl out of hibernation to work on again.

the Fraggle Squiggle socks!I am almost finished with the gusset decreases here and will then put these aside to work on the Spring in Your Step socks next.

Saturday, June 06, 2009's been a while

and I promised to update with pictures...and then life got busy. Yesterday was the last day of school for students. I still have 10 more days til I get a summer vacation. Below you see the latest shipment of the STR Rocking Sock Club -- Fraggle Squiggle Socks by J. C. Briar. I am into the gusset on these right now and will try to post a picture soon.Below is the MonthlyDishcloths mid-May kal -- Cabbage Patch knitted dishcloth

Lenore socks -- pattern by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. These were a STR sock club installment from a previous year. I am slowly getting the past kits knitted up between this year's shipments.
Spring in Your Step socks by Kerry Crone. I am using some Enchanted Knoll Farm Hand-dyed Fingering Sock Yarn purchased from The Loopy Ewe. Love this yarn, it's very squooshy and it is well matched with the pattern, I think.
In family news, Sarah scored well on her state tests and received recognition and a medal at the 7th grade awards ceremony this past Wednesday.
I don't know what is up with this picture. I took the picture correctly, but it refuses to load correctly to the blog. This is the June kal from MonthlyDishcloths -- American Flag dishcloth.
That was my last finish and I am still working on the two different socks. I promise I will post a picture at least of the Fraggle Squiggle socks tomorrow!
