Butterfly Super 10 Gray Summer Sweater

I finished this probably some time last fall, but I guess I never posted a picture of it. I really like how it turned out. I just made it with 0 ease and based on my measurements. I decreased twice in the front and twice in the back to make darts instead of just decreasing at the sides. The top front is a regular lace pattern from my stitch calendar. I used the sweater workshop guidelines to design it.

This is the yarn I bought in Toronto at SLA2005.

FO: Double Eyelet Rib Socks

Trekking XXL yarn bought on a field trip from a conference in Charlotte, NC. The eyelet rib comes from the 365 Stitches a Year Calendar, June 14. These are for me -- I'll have to try to take a picture of them on during daylight.

Ball and chain socks

I had some yarn to make my dh socks and couldn't figure out what to do so these are with afterthought heels (using Knitting Without Tears instructions) and the slip stitch chain pattern from the 6socks knitalong (sorry I totally can't keep up with that now... I've given up!)

I suggested naming these chains of love, but the old dh liked ball and chain better :)

Another dinosaur sweater

I knitted this between semesters for my niece. I knit another one about 10 years ago for my other niece and swore I'd never knit another one. It's so cute, but I hate weaving in ends! This is out of Lion Brand Wool Ease. Not the best picture but the child wouldn't stay still :) Of course, we should have taken a picture before giving it away. The scales are 3-D, too.

Whipped up Tychus for my brother in law

For Christmas. I made it about 2" shorter and only needed 4 sections. I used double stranded Plymouth Encore from the stash.
Update: I meant to include the link, oops. This is from Knitty. Find it at:
