You should enter this contest:

It has really really neat sock related prizes such as sock yarn and a tiny sock blocker!


Monkey sock!

I started these on June 20. Actually a few days before that, but I had to frog it and start again on larger needles (size 2 instead of 1). I really like the wide stripes that the yarn creates and the Monkey pattern is really easy to memorize. I'm almost done with the gusset!

Today I went outside and took pictures of all my recent finished projects.

Summer is awesome for knitting time! In the past four days I've finished three dishcloths! I made a turtle dishcloth, garterlac dishcloth, and a flower dishcloth. I only have a pic of one of them because I was busy all day and didn't get a chance to take pictures when the light was good in the afternoon. It was too nice out to be inside taking pics of dishcloths. :) For once it felt like summer and the sun was shining and there were no clouds! It keeps raining and raining and storming and raining and it's a little annoying. grr.

I'll have a better picture of this tomorrow.

I was really happy on Thursday because I went to see what I got on my chemistry final and I got a B on it which meant that my grade for chemistry was an A-! I was really happy about that becaus earlier in the quarter I had an 83 but then I did a whole bunch of extra credit and worked hard and bumped it up to a 93 for 4th quarter but the semester average was like 91 or 92. :)

My current wip is the Baby Bolero from the book One Skein. When it is more finished I'll take a pic of it. It's not much right now. :)

I named the turtle on my turtle dishcloth Timothy. ;) On Thursday night I went to bed at 11:30pm and woke up at 10:30am! I was really tired apparently.

For WWKIP day, I knit on the flower dishcloth in a coffeeshop! I also knit at a party. ;)

Summer's almost here

Tomorrow is my last day of school!! Yay! I haven't posted in forever because I've been busy. On Saturday we went to Madison (it rained a TON and there were tornado warnings and we went to Applebees to watch the Belmont Stakes but Big Brown sucked and got last place.) We went to Lakeside Fibers and I bought a skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton in the color Nut. It is for the Baby Bolero from the One Skein book. We went to the library today so we could get the book but someone had it checked out so I had to request it so I can't start it tonight. :( I started a Garterlac Dishcloth instead. :)
I also made a baby sweater for a layette at my church with Caron Simply Soft.

I made a whale from Bittersweet's pattern.
Last night I finished my Odessa hat! I used the Cascade 220 that I dyed with Kool-Aid. It is a really easy pattern. I cast on 90 stitches since I was using worsted weight yarn and I didn't add beads. I also added another inch of ribbing so it would cover my ears better. The funny thing about the hat is that right now it is 51 degrees F outside and windy and cloudy so it is actually cold enough to wear it outside!
