So, I've been doing a lot of knitting lately (so. much. knitting). Here's what I've come up with.

First, here is my sister's Christmas present. Kristen, I don't know if you read craftster but if you do, no peeking!


First time with cables. Pattern is Namaste from Knitty.com, and the yarn is Knit Picks Main Line. I love pima cotton, it's really shiny. I hadn't done the strap yet in these photos and of course there's nothing in it, but now the strap is on there (it's a six-stitch i-cord.)

Next is my friend Kiah's Christmas present, the Buccaneer's Booty socks from the pattern here on Craftster.

There are two, I promise. I just only have a photo of one of them and I already wrapped them up for gifting. They're done in the recommended yarn (Knit Picks Elements, I think it was). I loved this pattern! First time with Fair Isle.

Finally my friend Jody commissioned me to make her some mittens! This pattern is from http://www.konop.net/lifework/ and I love the way they turned out.


 These are  made with Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Forest Heather. I loved this pattern, it was so fast and easy. First time with increases.

...can you tell I like trying new things with every project? Cheesy soon I'll run out of new things to try!  Grin

Comments and crit welcome!

oh and here are two pairs of knucks I made a while ago.

Sorry, should have mentioned- Namaste isn't a scarf, it's a bag for a yoga mat. Since there's nothing in it it looks flat and I didn't have the strap done when I took the photo. Here's the pattern:

I love them all, but I'm especially drooling over the socks and your cables. Doesn't look at all like your first stab at cables, great job!!
