I finally sent my questionnaire in.  Holy crap I'm excited.  Also nervous.  I can't wait to start, seriously.

That cowl!  I thought it was a little cuff at first, but it's a whole cowl!  It's gorgeous.  The stitches in your colourwork look so nice and even.  And I'm in love the brown yarn you used.

Those are amazing.  I would wear both of them in a heartbeat, and I don't usually like rings.  I love love love the blue one.  The gold looks great.  You should absolutely do a bunch more.  I think they look fantastic.

I nearly had a heart attack when I realized I haven't been a member for a month (long-time lurker), but then noticed that I will be before the sign-ups close.  So yay!  My questionnaire's all filled out, I just need to wait a week to send it in Smiley

I've wanted to do swaps for ages.  I'm so psyched for this.

   
145  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Socks! on: July 25, 2011 05:24:26 PM
I've only been knitting for about a year and a half, so I don't have many socks to my name.  Yet.  All are knitted on size 0 DPNs, using a generic toe-up sock pattern. 

These are the first pair I actually finished.  Superwash merino.  I saw a fingerless gloves pattern on Ravelry that used a similar stripe pattern and was inspired.





And the second pair.  They're a wool/silk/alpaca blend in a gorgeous tweed and are a little tight around the ankle, and a little thick, but the yarn should stretch after a while. 





You can see there how the heel came out too small.   

Then there's the first socks I ever tried...



..and never finished.  But I got one done!  They're for my sister.  Originally meant to be a Slytherin scarf, but the yarn was purchased when I was too much of a newbie to know that sock yarn =/= good scarf yarn.  So Slytherin sock(s) they became.



Although the heel is crappy, they're the comfiest of the three.  I think the orange/red pair is my favourite, though.  My plan is to include cables in the next pair.  Wish me luck.

Gorgeous.  It almost looks like plaid, a bit.

So cool.  I like the two plaid ones the most.  Have you considered putting them on headbands or something?  Like here:

(Yes, I'm a crappy photographer)  







The colours in the first picture are most accurate.  It's 100% merino, and super soft and squishy.  It's not perfect, there are some thick and thin spots, but I adore it anyway.  Especially the colours.  What do you think?  I might make a hat with it, or I might just keep it as is to squish and admire.

I've tried unraveling thrift store sweaters and I always wind up with a big knotted mess.  I love the stripe pattern and colours here.

My sister was begging me for a similar scarf a while back (although we're Slytherins in this house Wink) and seeing this really encourages me to get off my butt and knit it.  It looks crazy comfortable.
