I am almost to the calf on Lolita...would be much further along, but it took about three hours for me to figure out the short row heel  Roll Eyes For some reason my stitch count was wrong, then I realized I forgot to slip off one stitch on the row right before the start the heel !DOH! after i realized my mistake, ripped back and picked up those stitches, it only took about 20 minutes to knit the heel!  Yay! I now know how to make socks!  Pics are on my blog, and my ankles have not looked that thick since I was pregnant...though i have yet to see a "see this is my sock" pic where anyone's ankles looks slim and girly...

Some of ya'll are really knitting fast! have ya'll stopped to eat or sleep? great job though! Keep it up! I am raising my beer and toasting you all!

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

Egads!  I am SO behind schedule.  This is what I have done:

That about 4 inches.  In order to be on schedule, I needed to have 9 inches done by tonight. 

Am I crazy for considering staying up late to try to make up for lost time?

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

I find when I do that, I pay for it with a trip to the Frog Pond.
My Progress: I've got 7 inches of my blanket done (in 3 days) if I do another 7 inches (36 rows, or 8,424 stitches, many of them cabled) I'll be right on target. I'll also have numb fingers  Shocked

...I am ready to throw in the towel. Or knit Picovoli... (Goes to check if Pico needs a provisional cast on)

only if you decide to use the picot edge.  it took me two hours to complete the provisional cast-on, but it is done! =]

which method are you using?  i crocheted a chain seperately, and then put the back loops on my needle.  apparently there's a quicker way where you crochet the chain directly onto the needle, which would have saved me time.  there's a tutorial here: http://www.stitchdiva.com/custom.aspx?id=48

hope that helps!

eta:  i just noticed you figured it out...bravo! =]

Progress on my bag on my second attempt.  I'm about 9 inches in & I did the handles, although they seem a bit uneven.....

You can read about my first failed attempt here:

So, the yarn I spun this weekend for this? Instead of socks, is begging me to become a scarf! So I cast on this morning for some nice wooly Jaywalkers in another yarn, and I get to reward myself with working on the scarf as I finish sections of my socks XD

Hello all,

This is my very first post...

I joined the 2006 Knitting Olympics a while ago and committed to making a Twin sized Stashgahn (using nothing but what comes out of my stash).

I assigned myself (for I saw no other way of it) to the US StashBuster's team and have even put the fun little button on my blog.

I'm 11 inches into the stashgahn.  My asthma got the better of me and I'm behind my schedule, but I think I can make it up today.
