Anklets In Purple

Someone's getting these for Christmas! Can't tell you who! Knitted them up in Knitpicks Essential Tweed Sock Yarn - "Plum." Mind you, these are a bit small for me - two sizes too small, to be exact - but I was the only model available before they got wrapped up and tucked under the Christmas tree.

Wrap It Around

Skinny scarves are GREAT!! This one was knit up during the Survivor finale and carpool wait times.
Bulky yarn. Size 15 needles.
10 stitches. K1P1 ribbing.
That's it!!
Made two for gifts and thinking about making another for myself!

Grab A Glove

You've seen these little beauties before, but I just finished up three more pairs for Christmas, and that counts! So here they are again. The VERY NEXT pair is going to be for me - in wonderful "Oregano" green. Just need to finish up one more present before then!
My favorite yarn for these is Knitpicks MainLine (75% Pima Cotton, 25% Merino Wool - remember, we live in SoCal, so fashion is more important than warmth!) but it looks like they're clearancing it. No .. No .. NO!! I really like the photo above, but the colors aren't very differentiated. Just in case you care, they are Dusty Lavendar, Red Velvet & Cocoa.

Traveling Diamond

Didn’t like a couple of the squares in the pattern, so I altered them slightly. However, I hated the middle “heart” square and replaced it with this “traveling diamond” found in my stitch dictionary - which became my favorite! I'm thinking of doing a whole scarf in it.

Lorelei On Me

This FANTASTIC pattern is found in YarnPlay by Lisa Shobhana Mason. The bottom section is knit sideways. Next time (already have the "sea blue" yarn) I'll bring the color stripe down a bit and go further up before starting the armholes. Otherwise, this one's a winner!

Toeless For Kricket

Somewhere along the knitting way Kricket decided these must be 'toeless." Being the wild crazy mom that I am, we did just that!  The yarn is TOFUtsies ~ made with soysilk and Chitin (from shrimp & crab shells).

Go Green!

Talk about snuggly socks!! Risata sock yarn from knitpicks, has great texture, subtle marbled coloring, and also some stretchiness. My feet are F-A-R from dainty, so although both socks are now complete, this photo is quite sufficient for display!

Smelling Pretty

Flower washcloth from Weekend Knitting, but you can also find the pattern for free here. I have numerous varied colors of the Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille yarn just waiting to be knitted up - it's so soft!

Cabled Cardigan

Bridgette LOVES this cardigan!! I designed it using The Knitter's Handy Book Of Sweater Patterns and incorporated a cable pattern by Fiona Ellis.

My Fetchings

There's always a pair of these Fingerless Fetching Gloves on my needles. They make fantastic "on the go" projects and gifts!

Washcloth Geometry

This hexagonal Mason-Dixon Knitting washcloth is my new favorite. Congratulations to Mari, who won both of these!


Bright anklet socks for Shealyn.  Created with "Simple Stripes" yarn by Knitpicks - which is no longer in production.   Don't remember much about them, but it's clear from the photo that one has a better kitchner stitch than the other!
