Give me more cables

I'm LOVING cables. I don't know why...I guess it's the way they look. They look like you've done something really fancy, but they are really easy (at least the ones *I've* done so far).

Current WIP. This is Brigit in the Dahlia colorway by Sundara Yarns. This is going really fast and is a fun pattern too.

I've also decided that I think Sundara's yarn is some of the best on the market. I love how it looks, I love how she overdyes and I love how it knits up. I may end up not signing up for any sock clubs next year except for hers (I'll have to wait until April 2009 before she takes any new members.). I can spend my money on her website for the first four months of 2009 though. :)

FINALLY finished and a few WIP

I FINALLY finished the Hedera socks...and hopefully my SIL won't read my blog before she has a chance to receive them. They are drying now.

Thanks goes to Sweet Pea 2 for being my model. My feet are too large for these socks. I did NOT enjoy knitting this pattern. Zoomom loved it, but I had SUCH a hard time memorizing lines one and three of the pattern. It did make it easier after she drew me a chart, but I will never knit these socks again. Thankfully, I know my SIL will like them since she is a part-time knitter and knows what goes into projects like this.

A few other things on the list are in progress. I'll have lots of knitting time this weekend so I hope to finish these socks.

These are mystery socks from the Soctopia group on Ravelry. I don't think the pattern is online anywhere except on Ravelry so I can't link it. I have 1/2 of a sock left to go.

Also going on is a new sock barely started.

This is Brigit and it is a surprise for someone I can't say since she may read my blog. Pattern only available on Ravelry.

I do have a lace scarf started but only 4 rows of garter is not anything to show. My Chevron scarf is coming right along too with only 25 inches left to go. I was hoping to finish it this weekend too, but we'll see. If not, it is good baseball knitting whereas Brigit and lace are not.
