Some Photos

Not very good ones but photos are better than words. These are photos of the three finished items I mentioned in my last post.

I need to get a better photo of me wearing it. The yarn is Findley by Juniper Moon Farm. I only used 1 1/2 skeins, at some point I will pair the remaining half skein with the skein I was given.

I made these socks for the April challenge which was unusual construction. The pattern is The Troll's Cauldron; a free pattern which is amazing considering the amount of work involved. What I like about this pattern is that it looks complicated but it was an easy knit. The yarn is Super Sock from Rain City Knits.

And finally the finished toy.

The yarn is Bernat Baby Boucle which has been in my stash a long time, nearly a complete ball left over from a baby blanket. When I was sorting out my stash at the end of the year I decided to keep it as I thought I would make a hat but as you can see it ended up as a pig. The other yarns used were in my stash also.

WIPS Are Down

If I count all my WIPs there are still too many because I have three projects that are in semi-hibernation. But I am pleased to say that I have finished four of the projects mentioned in my post from the middle of May.

I wrote and showed photos of one of them but since then I have finished a cardigan, a pair of socks and the toy. No photos yet. This brings my active projects to three. Three! A much better number. One shawl, one cardigan and one pair of socks. Although I am going to wait until August to knit the other sock as SKA has a challenge in August of finishing old projects. But I will be casting on a project for June's challenge. The project on which I will concentrate is the shawl as this just needs the sideways edging.

I am not going to set a deadline (end of the month would be nice) as we have visitors and not much knitting has been going on.

So just a little update of my projects and all that is needed are photos.
