Thanks for your nice words about my knitting! Many of you have asked how I knit so fast, (which I think of only as so-so fast, compared with some pros...). well, its simple- I knit while I watch television, at lunch time from work, and sometimes, (ahmm) when I am supposed to do other things... Like paperwork... Sigrid gave me permission to NOT do paperwork on the weekend, and I will use this card! (thanks pal!) You also asked about the pillow my feet are resting on. Its my sudoku pillow. You can read all about it in this post- (scroll to bottom)
So here are the Zombie socks. I did have enough yarn. What lovely yarn! Its very "Koigu"
The yarn is sKNITches’ Bebop Sock in Zombie
The pattern: Oak Ribbed socks (Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush) but I made the rib K3, P1,K1,P1 over 66 stitches.
US1 2 circs.
I am going over stash and old books to pick a next big project, and one thing got nixed: Minimalist Funnel Neck. I started it with Rowan felted tweed, but it was just too annoying. I recall Alice had trouble with all those confusing increases. Its a shame, since it looked like a fun pattern, but- NO. so what next? Not sure. Looking. Its really fun going over old books. I do want to use the felted tweed. I have the color Ginger. Have you seen Dave's awesome mitts?
I also frogged Hopeful. I was really not into that pattern. Its a great Rowan cotton/wool in red. I will use it better some other way.
OTN- a little scarf in 3 color seed stitch in pink, purple, blue. Its for a little girl in the same gym as my son's. She saw me knitting while waiting for him and asked me if I'll make her something in those colors. Dive to stash! Some nice merino, but no bands, so I don't know what is the yarn.
Its fun to make, even as it is bright....
