It is so perfect!!!!I cant wait to cast on!!!!Thank you so much Bliss!!!It totally rocks!!!

In other news, I'm about 5 inches up the back of Britts sweater. Due to showing up at work at 2, rather than 3 when I was acually supposed to be!Past the ribbing into the garter st, wonderful for chatting and reading! I can see this going quickly!

I'm also to the point where I need to bind off the toe of my first magic 28 socks to start on the next!

I joined!

I was going threw some old projects today and I came across this pair of mittins I started last year.It was my own pattern, of wich I didn't write down.
I ripped it and promptly started Normas magic 28 sock and joined the web ring, link on the bottom of the page.
I have pledged 12 pairs before the end of winter.
The first sock is past it's gusset. SO QUICK!
I know I have so much Christmas knitting, but I need something low stress and portable.All in all, just something to make me feel good on the inside.
I have a bit of wool, only hand washable in alot of brite colors. I however, don't "do" hand wash only and neither does my family. So this is a good way to use it up for a good cause

long week come to a close.Still working on the socks, just having a beer,sitting here , reading up on some blogs picking up on the socks some and adding a few rows here and there.I susspect I'm 1/4 down the foot now.

just trying to de-stress.It's been a bad week. And I have to take money from savings to pay my rent.
Good thing I won her contest or I wouldn't be having any new yarn in awhile!!

It's been slow..

I got the socks down to the heel shaping, then I'll be starting the gusset.
Stu has gotten me a new book on Amiguri , and I want to start something now!!!

Sleeves done!

I think I was smart to do the sleeves first on the size 5 sweater.
They were very quick and fun!
Now the front and back are just giant garter st rectangles, so I can see myself switching between the size 5 and size six sweater.
I think I'll be calling the size 5 sweater Britts sweater and the 6 Bradys, for the intended recipiants.
Britts is a fushia defuised by a strand running threw it that fades from black to navy to a slightly lighter pink.
Bradys is a dusty blue.
I also finished a log on the afghan and cant start a new one until I unearth my size 10 circs.It is now way to large for my 10 inch straights!
It's been rainy and cold. The perfect time for big afghan knitting!
A small bit on the socks have been worked.I'm on the heel of the second sock now.I'm just happy to be seeing results in my knitting again.
I feel like I've been in a stand still forever.It's nice to be moving again....

I think it's working..

Last night I finished the first sleeve f the size 5 sweater and the ribbing on the second.
Tonight it's a bit chilly so I brought out the blanket and started a new block of color.
It's a log cabin and is at the point where it is getting just to big to finish an entire block in one sitting.
I also knit 2 or so rows on the sock.Hey at least it's something! :)

I need to finish something.....

I'm going out of my mind.I have recently started my Christmas knitting. 3 small sweaters sizes 6, 5 and 3 , for my neices and nephews. A pair of socks for a co worker, a blanket for my sister, and thats just what I have started!!!
I have 1 sock done and the other almost down to the heel, 1 sleeve on the size 5 sweater is well over 1/2 way done, to the yoke on the front of the 6 sweater. Blanket is 3 out of 8 skeins in.
I am devoting myself to posting here at least once a week to keep track of my progress.I really need to get to knitting if I'm going to have all this done!
The blanket has gotten to the point where it is way to hot for me to knit in this 80 + weather.
Socks are my work knitting.
The sweaters are small enough, one is garter st the other is a mix of basketweave and seed st. The 3rd is not started yet.

See you next week
