New yarn is here

My Socks That Rock package came today. This is my bi-monthly sock club package. When I peeked at the spoilers, I wasn't crazy about the colors. THEN I saw where someone had wound it into a cake....Oh MY! Almost good enough to eat.

On the WIP front

One boring sock

This sock feels like it is taking FOR. EV. ER. And I'm not totally in love with this sock, but I guess it will be cute when I finish it.

On to the lace

This little bit of lace took me FOUR (count them), FOUR times casting on and working the first 2 rows for me to FINALLY get it right. I am enjoying it though. I just can't be too tired when I work on it. And work on it is something I did not do much of this past week. I'm trying to finish the most boring sock before April 30. I don't think I'll make it!

Just arrived

This is the yarn for my next project. It is Kidsilk Haze in the Meadow color (#632). The project will be a wrap. My first lace knitting other than the Monkey socks below. Just looking at this yarn makes me SCARED! It looks like I'll be knitting with fuzzy THREAD! Oh my! And I thought my sock yarn was little!

No pix of inprogress socks, but there will be some soon. I'm also working on a shrug for my "brainless" project, but I've been trying to concentrate on the socks since I'm in the SockAMonth KAL.

Meow, meow

I finished another Kitty Pi last night and felted it today.

This one is for the little princess aka Cheerio who appears to be shy in this picture.

Jack decides to try Cheerio's bed on for size. I think it fits him better.

This bed was knit with two skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky and I used some Fun Fur Prints by Lion Brand to top it off. I may send it through another cycle of the wash since the stitches aren't all the way felted. You can still see the stitch definition a little more than I like.

Now on the needles are two toes. I have the toes completed for a pair of socks and I will get back to swatching some lace which the little devils above (oops! Did I say that?) took off my needles during their midnight escapades.
