Yes, I know I promised photos awhile ago. Yes, I know I’m a slacker. Actually, I’m posting pictures and blogging now while I should be writing my NaNoWriMo novel. Which sucks, by the way. There was a good plot going and then bang! It fell apart. Then everyone in the novel changed their names (to protect the innocent?) and suddenly got new careers. It’s a roller coaster ride. I hate roller coasters. I’m only at 3689 words, too. So procrastinating isn’t in my best interests.
But, I digress. Back to knitting. I’ve been working (almost) diligently and have three pairs of socks and a baby jacket to show off. My next project is a beret made of kid mohair and merino. Pink. For a special someone who I don’t think reads my blog but I’m not sure so quit trying to pull out the details!
First project to show and tell is the Baby Surprise Jacket. EZ’s pattern and the first one I’ve actually finished! It’s definitely a case of let go and let Elizabeth (apologies to my Christian friends for the paraphrasing). I have a slight dilemma, though. I can’t pick buttons. I have these:
Here’s the jacket:
The fiber is Dale of Norway Baby Ull in bright pink (15) and purple (40). My camera is not taking great pictures lately, so you can’t really see the colors. Well? Suggestions?
As for socks, here they are…
Boot Socks, which contrary to appearance, are not for Big Foot. Made from Red Heart Super Saver Flecks in Coffee and Buff. Totally washable and really warm. Next are the Diagonal Rib Socks from Favorite Socks, made with Cascade Sassy Stripes Superwash in colorway 765.
And then Eyelet Rib Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks, in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Amethyst Stripe:
My next project is a pretty beret for a beautiful young woman who loves pink and (hopefully) doesn’t read my blog. It will be knitted with Kiddy Print Kid Mohair/Merino and another merino that will forever be anonymous since I don’t have the band.
The pattern is to be the Sweet Honey Beret from the Interweave Knits, Winter 2008. I may leave the flower off. Photos of the finished work to come.
