After going full steam for a few weeks loom knitting, I had to put my needles aside and many of my projects got set aside, but after coming back from our trip to California, I had to pick them back up. My needles are going non-stop, when I am not working on DA stuff, I am sitting on the couch clicking away. It is amazing how much more relaxed I feel after picking up my needles, yarn and my headphones (I am listening to the Wheel of Times series) . Knitting and reading (or in this case listening), perfect combination for a great relaxing time!
After much waiting, I present you my gorgeous (even if you don't like them nod in agreement) set of Anna Socks. I am enamored with the socks. They make me feel soooo sexy....hubby asked me if they would become my church socks...I think I shall wear them this coming Sunday and see the reaction. What do you think (Mim) do you think I will get pull aside and chastised?
I have gotten more yarn in a deep wine color to make a second pair...a sizzling wine hot pair of sexy socks!
Next, I knitted a pair of fabulous fingerless mitts with the yarn that I got from Scout's Swag. It is a simple design, not much frills, but the yarn makes them just super! The pattern can be made either on a knitting loom or on dpns.
What else...oh yeah, although I told myself that I was going to take a break from loom knitting, I couldn't help myself and I created a set of little slippers for my little Benny. The pattern will be tweaked a bit to create little felted slippers, kind of a smaller version of the Ballerina slippers but for little wee ones. They look so cute on little Benny's feet, or rather, Little Benny's feet make them look so cute!
On the needles now: a little bolero for little Benny, and finishing a very old FO...stay tuned to see the come back of my very first adult size sweater. Also, I have pictures of our trip to where dreams can come true!
