Since no one posted I figured it could be my turn. I just finished my cowl and only have 2 things on my needles right now so here they are:
My loch ness monster just needs her back flipper finished and tail stuffed and sewn.

Any my first pair of socks. They're the twilight pattern from the two-at-a-time socks book. They're top down:

I plan to do a gauge swatch for my Burnside Tunic tonight.
What's everyone else got on the go?

Your little Nessie is so cute! And socks, so addictive! I finished my first pair recently, and I have two others on the go Cheesy

Kroy FX toe-up socks.


Hand-dyed nylon/acrylic pencil roving toe-up socks.


I'm also getting close to completion on my Rodarte inspired crop-sweater. I had abandoned this months ago!

I'm also working on socks. This is the first time I've done toe-up socks. It took a little getting use to because it felt so backwards but now that I've got the hang of it, it's moving along nicely.



Also, next time I decide to use self striping yarn I'm going to make sure I start the balls on the same ends, hopefully these socks don't look too weird with the patterns not matching exactly.

(I put the pin sock A so I could keep track of where I started, but now that I see the color difference I guess I could take it out)

It seems like socks are a popular item on the board right now. Making socks gets me excited for more winter projects!

No photos this week, but I finished the linen stitch doll skirt. I didn't even touch the sewing thread project though.

The sleeves for my sweater are about 5" long. Considering I need them around 22" before I do the cap shaping.... you'll be seeing them in progress again before I finish.  Cheesy

I started some doll panties because the skirt is rather short when she sits. Then I accidentally snapped the thin yarn while frogging back a bit on those so they're in a time out.

I'm resisting the urge to cast on Annis with a ball of Patons Lace I bought on impulse.

I may give into the urge to start a hat though, since I do need to consider Christmas.

Remarkably, no socks on the needles at the moment.  Grin

Wow, so many socks! Socks are still a little intimidating to me, so I'm impressed.
And that nessie is too adorable!

It's been forever. I kinda stopped knitting once I started grad school but I've realized how much I've missed it. I'm currently working on this bowtie pattern, I'll try to get picks up tomorrow. I'm also going to cast on some gloves for the upcoming winter and I'm going to make some yarn out of a beautiful woven scarf I have in order to make.. a scarf.

So many socks! Fun! Cheesy 

I'm currently working on finishing up my dog's sweater. I did half of it, then put it aside back in July, and since I want my #8 needles back, it's time to finish, lol.

Dawn, I do the same thing! I put the safety pin on the side of the sock where my "beginning" is.

Bminks, that is the cutest little tie! And imagine that, dismantling a scarf to make a scarf, LOL!
