knitty stuff

Judy is having a sock yarn giveaway, and the deal is that I need to show what I'm working on now -- so these are my 2-at-a-time socks so far. I'm not loving the technique, and I'm not loving the yarn... but I will persevere! I like the way the striping looks at the tips of the toes -- kind of random -- but I don't like how regular it gets after that. Ah well. It's only socks, right?

I'll show another picture of the Shakespeare in the Park quilt once the binding is on, but first you have to see the wonderful swirls that Darcie quilted for me... I might have to redcorate a bit to show this off!
And, I'm trying to catch up on the Friday Block Party, so here are a couple of the newest blocks for your viewing pleasure!

Now, back to the knitting -- I need to get another 20 rows done before my class tomorrow!

Wow, I have got to make a SITP quilt! Yours looks very pretty, but want to see the entire quilt :-)

Show those socks who is in charge!

Your piecing looks great by the way:)

Shakespeare looks marvelous! Glad you're enjoying it. How's the binding going?! ;-)

Thank you again for the lovely phonecall the other night, Julie! It truly was a pleasant surprise to hear from you in person.

Good luck with the socks and the class!

I've actually never tried 2AAT socks. Guess I"m happy figuring out the pattern on the first sock and "feeling smart" when the second one goes faster. Yes, I am catching up on a massive backlog of blog reading. Why do you ask? ;-)
