Do these look at all familiar? They are longer than when you saw them last. Somewhere around a year ago I taught myself the magic loop technique & started these socks. Life happened and i put them aside after about two inches of sock. I had forgotten ALL about them until I stumbled upon them last week. Yes, I have officially become that kind of knitter... I have so many projects that I actually loose track & forget about some.
The sock bug has bitten me once again. I have been working on the black Regia socks that I started a year ago, AND now I have started a new magic loop-two-at-once-toe up pair out of some yummy ochre Koigu. The pattern is Badacaul from My Fashionable Life. Dig those mini cables, they really pop in that CA-raz-ee Koigu! I think the sock bug is going to stick hard this time. The sock monkey has moved in onto my back. Well... not THE sock monkey, a sock monkey... nevermind. Also, I am looking for more patterns written for toe up magic loop socks. I know that it's fairly easy to convert any sock pattern to magic loop, it's the toe-up part that I am not so certain how to convert.
YES, more hats. Are you sick of seeing hats here? This one was a xmas gift for my pal Kate. The yellow (frank ochre) and blue (bobby blue) is malabrigo, the brown is lambs pride in bronze patina.
Soooo... this bag- ugh. I wanted to make a bag big enough to haul my school stuff around plus a knitting project. I knit this one up out of lambs pride bulky. I made the pattern up, the shape is great, I am happy enough with that. And I am really happy with the way the handles came out, very sturdy. But the stripes, colors... YUCKO! Don't know what I am going to do with it. I actually liked it better BEFORE I felted it. I will snap a post felt photo to share.
An Elmer Fudd hat for me out of malabrigo in color Pearl Ten. I just need to felt it. It's been so ridiculously cold that the last thing i want to do is touch cold wet wool to shape the darn thing. BUT, it's so damned cold that I really need to finish this hat. Those earflaps are so warm!
AND.... more sock yarn. LOVE these groovy colors!
