Knitting Catch-Up

It's been a loooong time since I did a knitting post, so tonight is all about catching up. All links below are to Ravelry sites, so if you want more information and aren't on Ravelry, leave me a comment and I'll find a non-Ravelry link.

A couple people have asked about the doggie hat in my last post, and I finished it today so here it is. First, here is a shot of it all finished except for the final point.

And here it is in all its glory. Well, maybe not "in all its glory" - it's really just sitting on a table at work, but it'll look great on top of a Christmas tree this year!

Pattern: Celestine by Norah Gaughan.

Next up, socks, socks, and more socks.

Pattern: Dead Simple Lace Socks by Wendy Johnson of WendyKnits

Pattern: On Hold socks by Wendy Johnson, again.

Pattern: Nanners socks by Wendy again.

Pattern: Diamond Gansey socks by Wendy, yet again.

Pattern: Lacy Ribs socks, by guess who...Wendy Johnson again! After mom gave me Wendy's "Socks from the Toe Up" book for my birthday, I can't stop knitting toe-up socks. I have three more pair on the needles. I'm hooked!

Nice crop of socks! I was looking for a good toe up sock the other day and ended up with something different.

The star looks complicated but it will look beautiful on a tree in December (is it ok to even say the word December already?)

I need that book. Maybe it would restore my sock mojo?

Sue said...

That's a neat star. I might have to try it.

You have done some nice work there! I love that book, and am so pleased that it helped me figure out how to do toe-up socks! I feel like all kinds of new patterns have opened up for me.
