1  Lacy Toddler Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by phoebefayre on: June 04, 2008 02:35:44 PM
I searched high and low for a more feminine toddler sock pattern that was made for fingering weight (so many are intended for DK or thicker) and wasn't simply ribbed or stockinette. Oh, and free! These are lacy without being too fussy. They make a great on-the-go project. Plus, they're super quick. (Please disregard the pen scribbles on her leg. Tried not to include them.)

Pattern:  Socks for Little Witches (Ravelry link; sorry, non-ravelers.)
Needles:  Knit Picks Nickel-plated DPNs US 1 (2.50mm)
Yarn:  Knit Picks Felici in Mixed Berries

Little sister, you are making this way more complicated than it should be. You do the yf (as if to purl) and slip the stitch pwise when you're working on the wrong side. On the right side, you do the yb (as if to knit) and slip the stitch pwise. The point is to have one long slipped stitch without interruption separating the rectangles of variegated. See how long the orange stitch is on mine.

"Sorry, mom, but this ridiculous Tweety bird purse requires my undivided attention. I haven't time for your pathetic attempts at photography."

Pattern: Sara Galley's Hug Me Shrug

After much cajoling and begging on my part, I finally got her to look up and say cheese.

Someone actually gifted me with these wooden letters, but they were pepto pink-gag. I didn't have to paint the sides, though. Thankyoulocust also made a point of telling me not to use too many of the coordinating papers so the letters wouldn't be too busy. Oh, and these pics were not taken in 2002.

6  My first SS attempt in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by phoebefayre on: July 30, 2007 02:41:40 PM
Long-time reader, first-time poster---nothing you guys haven't seen before, but I enjoyed it. I needed a quick project to provide me with that much-needed sense of satisfaction. So I grabbed my nephew's baby blanket and started to use metallics, but then remembered that metallics make me want to punch babies and this baby was too cute to punch. Also, my stitches are a bit wonky. If you can avoid stitching on these thermal blankets, do so because it makes for heinous embroidery. There's also an obligatory action shot starring baby Dorian.
