Yes, I still knit

14 03 2008

I still do knit sometimes, don’t worry. I even finished a pair of socks this week! I finally finished the Ripples socks from November’s Sockamania pattern. They’re intended for my friend Kelly, I hope they fit her!

Finished Ripple socks

They might be a bit tight around the ankles but I gave them a good soak and I think they might have stretched out a bit. I wont know for a few weeks if they do fit her as I need to mail her the socks and she’s on vacation at the moment.

I also finished another sock, my first Red Dwaf sock in HandMaiden Casbah Sangria. The pattern really was a lot of fun and I had them knit in no time at all.

Red Dwarf 1

I started knitting again on my other Red Dwarf sock, the one in Schaefer Lola. I’ve reached the leg now and I should have it done in a few days.

Onto the leg

This sock is destined for my May Day Sock Swap pal. I hope she likes the color!

After spending more time sewing on my sewing machine, I realized that it really didn’t work very well and that I needed to buy myself another one. I am in the process of destashing quite a bit of yarn to pay for it. I have some new yarns listed on my destash page . Let me know if something strikes your fancy!

Gorgeous socks! Now I’m feeling the urge to knit Red Dwarf socks… And I’m glad to hear that you still knit. 😉

oohhh girl your socks are so freaking prettyy!!! I love the red dwarf socks. Both of them! The colors are so rich.

I’ve had problems with my old machine, it was a Singer. The sewing machine guy who fixed it told me that it was never properly lubricated. And it didn’t help that there was a tun of fuzz in it. So the gears where grinding on each other. After he lubed the machine up it worked well. A year later I bought a Lady Kenmore and I love it. Its nice to me. Now if I could only sew…. I always make sure to give it a bit of sewing machine old every now and then.
