a little bit blurry

Not me (I wish). Some of the picture in this post, though.

I finished the Ultramerino socks – so. nice.

I think I need to make a pair for myself in every colour! Anyway, I used Ultramerino 6, colour 136, 1 skein. I did 48 stitches on 3.25 mm needles, and a 5″ cuff in 3×1 rib – and look how much yarn I had left over! Not even an exciting finish.

Next time I’ll do 5.75″ or even a 6″ cuff. Of course, now that I’ve said that, I’ll be punished by the Knitting Goddess, but oh well. Oh, and I did an awesome eye of partridge heel, too.

Onto the blurry photos – did people see that Rowanspun 4ply up on Elann last week? It disappeared crazy fast. And I was in on it!

I got 18 skeins of Blood (and 18 in Burgundy for Jill), and also threw in a kacha-kacha counter and the Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook. I’m planning on double-stranding this stuff, but even still, it’s going to take awhile!

I finished knitting the second robot, too. I think I’m a bit robot-ed out for awhile.

Now I just need to find some time to seam all the fiddly things up. But not right now – I’m off to make cookies for tomorrow’s holiday/anniversary party at lettuce knit. And uh, study or something. Yeah.

    Mmmmmm….socks look so soft and squishy. Whoever gets these have some very lucky feet.

    The socks look great! I look at all your FOs and I feel like I haven’t knit and finished anything in forEVER. Wait…maybe that’s because I haven’t.

    When you’re all done with the robot, I’d be interested to hear your commentary on the patterns, especially pitfalls or tips. I bought the book and I can’t wait to get stuck in!

    Those socks are great, I should do an eye of partridge heel more often, it looks wonderful.
    See you this evening…any idea how I’m supposed to pack up these cookies?

    Hiya, The Rowanspun 4 ply knits up nicely into socks. I made this pair recently using Hello Yarn’s cable twist pattern and they’re lovely.
