Some progress on Lucky

I'm probably 3 inches up the other front. It's going fine. Not very exciting except that I have to keep track of where I am (dec every 9 rows...). At least the pattern is well ingrained.

I'm off to a conference in Toronto next weekend so I'm hoping to have the yarn and be ready to cast on and knit the next of the increasingly inaccurately named six sox knitalong socks. I need something for travel that can be stuffed into a bag and doesn't require a lot of careful attention.

Check this out

My DH saw this and begged it from the calendar's owner.

Finished one and a half cloverleaves

I really like this pattern. As I'm waiting for my pictures to upload I'm now on the decreases after picking up around the heel. It's really going quickly.

Updated: I fixed the pictures. I have no idea what happened to the first ones.

Started the 1st of the 6Sox, Clover Leaf

I never did these because I started the group late. I'm now doing them with some Paton's Kroy on DPN (homemade bamboo skewer dpn). They're going really great and look good on. I took this picture Friday and now I'm halfway down the foot. The yarn is a pleasure to work with and the pattern is easy to remember and really stretchy.

The picture's kind of fuzzy, but you can still see the pattern.

DH's camera bag (before felting)

Doesn't look nearly floppy enough or big enough, I hope it is!

All but finished my fluffy beaded scarf

As my dh says, just in time for warm weather! I didn't string the beads in advance, but added them using a v. v. small crochet hook (0.9mm) through the bead and pulled the loop of yarn through. All that's left to be done is to tie knots on the fringe so the beads don't fall off.

Spike Modeling her new socks

They're actually none too big. She can still grow a little and wear them, but they're really not too big.

Made some socks for Spike

Gosh, Spike's almost 4 months now. She's a big girl! Alas, I think she has small feet. No doubt these socks will go up to her hips! I used the measurements from the sock featured on the Interweave site this month. Anyway, when I get a chance I'll get her to model them.

Let me know if you want the pattern. I'll type it out and post it here.

FO: Lace Sockotta Socks

And good riddance, too. Ugh. I'm glad to finally have these over and on my feet. They do look kind of cool, though, and I did learn a lot. 1) new toe (round, kind of like the top of a hat) 2) sewn bind-off with k2p2 ribbing 3) to pick lace patterns for socks more carefully so I don't have to concentrate so hard on them!

FO: Go Team Socks

These socks were great. Maybe I'll make another pair someday.
