Old Project, New Project, Sock Project, Blue Project!

I realize I never showed you the completed first ever sock. It's a beauty! Well, It's a sock at least. I am not a huge fan of the yarn or pattern so I am not planning on making the second one anytime soon.

For my next sock-related trick.....

This is going to be a Jaywalker!


I avoided even casting on for the second of my silk armwarmers but did begin a pair of Fetching. I couldn't resist any longer. They will go to Artgirl who once upon a time, I made a bright red alpaca hat.
I am totally making them for myself too- So. Cute. Plus a fun, quick knit. I must say though- the cabling in the round? Not as easy as it seems- especially on a turbulent airplane. I am glad I had cable experience before these otherwise I would have given up and never cable knit again.


I also finally finished my Branching Out. It only took me a year and a half. While I was messing with my computer to go through airport security, the yarn got stuck in the zipper of my backpack. It broke when I pulled it out. Now my beautiful, years-in-the-making lace scarf has a big ol' hole in it. The horror...

(I actually don't have any decent pictures of the hole...here is my moms' cat instead)

I have a good looking cat! At least from this angle.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about the scarf, so much work, destroyed in so little time. Is it fixable? Could you maybe get an embroidered flower/bird...and stitch it onto the hole?

I love your sock, surprised you don't like it?!?

Your red Fetchings are great! Lovely colour - it even looks warm.

Thanks for your comment on my blog and Fetchings as well. I do recommend lengthening them a bit if you want them beyong your knuckles.
