Fuzzy Scarf!

Remember back in November when I mentioned that I didn't actually have an everyday warm scarf to wear? Well, I promptly made one, and then never posted it. Here it is:

Remember this?

If you've been reading for a while, you may (or may not) remember that I knit Birch back in 2005-2006. And then never mentioned it again. That's because it's been sitting in a Ziploc bag in my underwear drawer since then, waiting to have the ends woven in and to be blocked. I finally decided that this was ridiculous, and that I had to get over my blocking phobia. (I'd only blocked smaller items in the past.) I set the Fiber Revival as my deadline, so I could show it off, and ordered blocking wires from Knitpicks. I don't think it's the best blocking job ever, but it's done!


I love it. Wheeee.

Socks for Seeley, done!

Socks for Seeley

Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in Firefighter
Needle: US 1

On the show Bones, David Boreanaz's character Seeley Booth is known for wearing interesting socks. So it was only logical that a group of us over on the Bones discussion board on Ravelry decided that he needed some hand knits. One person contacted his agent and arranged for us to send him a box of socks. We're hoping that some of them end up on the show! I really like the way these came out, but they took forever because they are so much bigger than the socks I usually knit (for myself, mostly). I kept thinking I was almost done, and then they kept going on and on. I'm so glad that they are done and I can work on some other things now!

The baby blanket is done!


Toby's Blanket

Pattern: Sam's Blanket
Yarn: Reynolds Saucy
If you're on Ravelry, you can see my project details here.

I got really sick of it by the end, but I'm very happy with the finished result! This is the second of these blankets I have made, and I'm sure I will be making more in the future.

Arugula socks done!

At long last:

Arugula Socks

They're finally done! I love them. They took forever because I pretty much only knit them while waiting in line, at writing group, and other times like that. Yarn is Knitpicks Felici in Arugula, which seems to have been discontinued. Alas. I really like Felici - I'm using the Firefighter colorway now.

February socks done!

I was falling asleep on the couch on the 29th while weaving in ends, but I finished them in February! Yay!

Slytherin Socks

Yarn: Dye-namics Slythern Stripe, sport weight
Needles: US 2
Pattern: I thought the cuff pattern was from Sensational Knitted Socks, but I can't find it. Hmm. The rest of it is just a basic sock.
For: A friend who really likes Slytherin stuff.

I love love love this yarn, and I'm happy with the way these came out.

Another late Christmas present done!

I finished Dad's scarf a few days ago:

Rib and Braid Scarf

I'm quite pleased with the result. Yarn is Patons Shetland Chunky; pattern is my own. I was thinking of possibly making the pattern available for download on Ravelry... think it's interesting enough?

First finish of 2008!

I finished Mom's Christmas socks on January 27, and finally got a decent picture. Since I finished them in January, I'm on track with my "finish a pair of socks a month" goal! Yay!

Mom's Christmas Socks

They're plain socks in Dye-namics Small Stripes, "mystery" colorway, sport weight. Love love love this yarn.

P.S. Mom, they'll be in the mail soon!
