WIP: Bonnie's Longies

Originally uploaded by amyjunkins
Just finished the cuff on leg #1 - a moss/seed stitch that will cuff well and look exactly the same on the reverse side. The cuff is a tad larger around than the leg to facilitate cuffing without stretching the cuff out of shape.

The custom-dyed yarn arrived from Julie of Selah and I cast on!

I saw a new way to do a double-tail cast on loosely... Say I'm knitting the waist ribbing on 6s... then hold two size 6 DPNs together and tightly cast on to them, then remove the extra one - VOILA - nice loose cast on.

I am just to the point where I am inserting the first short rows.

WIP: Andean Silk Clapotis

I picked up my clapotis last night for the first time in a week or so, maybe longer. I was/am enjoying the pattern and the knitting progress, but have been dealing with sequential illnesses, first the 4 month old with a cold, then the 3 year old with a viral throat infection, then the husband with a nasty cold, then the now-5 month old with a combo of the viral throat thing and the cold, and last night - the 3 year old starts sniffling. Sigh. It's not even winter yet.

Anyway, because of all of this drama, I have no progress pictures, but here is a picture of the colorway I am using in Andean Silk.

FO: Lattice Stitch Socks for J

Finished - the lattice stitch socks (More Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch) for DH J. In the oatmeal colorway of Wool Ease. Nice and warm for winter and he is surprised at how comfortable and cushy they are - this is the first pair of socks I've knit him. YAY!! Score 1 for knitting.

Sock On!

Some sock progress on the sock for A that I'm knitting. It's going very nice and quickly and the Patons Kroy Socks is nice and sturdy. I can't say that I like the way the pattern is striping on the front, but the striping is striking on the back.
