1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lacy Toddler Socks 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

Pattern: Polly Outhwaite's French Market Bag
Yarn: Patons SWS in Natural Plum
Needles: Knit Picks Options US 8 (5.00mm) and DPNs US 8 (5.00mm)

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Toddler Shrug (image heavy) on: March 27, 2008 08:02:15 AM
"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
Yarn: SouthWest Trading Company Bamboo in Fiery Red
Needles: Knit Picks Options US 6 (4.00mm)

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

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Arggghhh-Help with Thuja socks on: September 10, 2007 09:42:28 AM
I started the Thuja socks with fingering weight instead of the weight called for in the pattern. To make up for the difference, I cast on 64 sts rather than 44. I didn't even consider the freaking heel. The heel flap, I can figure out, but the turn heel part is where my problem lies. So I have no idea if I should have more decreases or extra rows to make up for the difference when I get to it and how many sts should remain when I'm done. I'd rather put my dpns through my eye than pull out the leg that I've done, so if you smarter and more experienced knitters can help me figure this out, please help!!! Here is the heel pattern for the Thuja socks.

Heel Flap
Next Round: Work 22 sts in Heel Stitch, working all these sts onto one needle; the heel flap will be worked back and forth on these sts. Leave rem sts on hold on 1 needle.

Work 21 more rows in Heel Stitch (ending with WS row).

Turn Heel
Row 1 [RS]: K13, ssk, k1, turn work.
Row 2 [WS]: Sl 1, p5, p2tog, p1, turn work.
Row 3 [RS]: Sl 1, k6, ssk, k1, turn work.
Row 4 [WS]: Sl 1, p7, p2tog, p1, turn work.
Row 5 [RS]: Sl 1, k8, ssk, k1, turn work.
Row 6 [WS]: Sl 1, p9, p2tog, p1, turn work.
Row 7 [RS]: Sl 1, k10, ssk, k1.
Row 8 [WS]: Sl 1, p11, p2tog, p1.
Row 9 [RS]: Sl1, k11, ssk.
Row 10 [WS]: Sl 1, p10, p2tog.

12 sts rem.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / My first SS attempt 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.
