Tuesday

Hello. I'm back from Kansas.
Hope everyone has had a lovely holiday so far.
I had a lovely Christmas at my cousins. Lots of hanging out with family, knitting, watching t.v., and eating, lots and lots of eating.
My cousin had a very comfy overstuffed chair and ottoman that I parked myself in and knit, a lot.
As a result I have several FO's to show you.

Yippy, the legwarmers are done!



I thought I was never, ever, going to finish the second one. I like them and I think they will serve their purpose, warmth. The pattern is from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, I love this book, and it looks like this and some other knitting books are on sale at Amazon. There is a mistake in the book in regards to the amount of yarn used but corrections can be found at Purl. I used the Cascade 220 like they did but used Rowan Kidsilk Haze instead of the Madil Kid Seta.

I also finished my Aqua Melon socks. I love them, the colors, the feel, everything. Still not happy with my heel technique, but I think I'm slowly improving


I swear my feet are the same size.
So the yarn is Vesper Sock Yarn by Knitterlythings in the Aqua Melon colorway and I got it at Kpixie.

I started on a new pair of socks which I will post a picture of tomarrow and also a little show and tell of some of the Christmas goodies I got this year.

Yay, finished leg warmers! I parked myself in my mom's comfy chair and got lots of cat petting and a bit of knitting done in CA. I love comfy chairs!

Your picture yesterday is really neat, I like it.

Congrats on finishing the leg warmers. Those are the first thing you knitted when you joined N. End Knitters! The melon sox look awesome.
