Maybe I should just give up knitting (not really)
I'm Back!

So maybe I can knit nice things

I'm happy to report two finished objects that I am rather pleased with.

I finally finished the Willow and Oz knee socks I started in October.

Randomly striped knee socks are definitely nifty, but these were a slog. I think it was the knitting with two balls of yarn. Not portable and a bit fiddly.

Emma loves them and that makes me happy. The colours are fantastic: Indigodragonfly merino sock in My world is all askew and Hootenanny: Well it's chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny.

And yesterday I finished something nice for me:

Sweetums fingerless mitts in beautiful Indigodragonfly merino silk. This is not a colour I would pick for myself. That the nice thing about clubs. They push you outside of your normal boundaries. Now that they're done I love them. The colour is so pretty (top photo is more accurate; it's hard to photograph your own hands).

These were the ones I stumbled on a few weeks back. Once I got over that it was smooth sailing and for a little bit I felt like I had my knitting groove back.

They're very warm and cozy. And sadly, still needed. Actually, it was too cold to wear them today.

I think I'm going to stick with some small things, it feels good to finish some pieces that I'm happy with.



I can see how knee-socks would be a slog, but they came out so cute!
I love the mitts. Must queue pattern!

I am still totally smitten with those socks, oh my gosh. They're gorgeous work, although I can imagine that they'd be a slow project. Those are tallllllll.

Those cabled mitts are gorgeous, too! I have the same feeling sometimes with club yarns and fiber - it's not always 'my' colour, but often I end up coming around and really loving the chance to play with something outside of my usual.

I'm crazy jealous of those knee socks! I really want to knit some. I've been lusting after a pair for two years now, and I haven't gotten around to starting. :-D

Awesome knee socks! Those are so cute I'm inspired to knit a pair for myself.

LOVE! the knee socks!

Cute! I would love to have kneesocks like that :)

Those knee socks are filling me with envy.
