First FO's of 2011

Presenting . . . Wellenhiker . . . a wonderful little shawl, Hitchhiker by Martina Behm, knit in Wollmeise twin in Wellensittichvogelfeder WD colorway on 3.25 mm needles.
I love it. It is the perfect weight. It ended up with 39 points. I got to practice my continental knitting style with all of the garter stitch

The first actual FO object(s) of 2011 were a hat and pair of baby socks for one of Alex's teachers. I knit these all on Sunday afternoon and evening. The yarn used is Classic Yarns - Cashsoft Baby DK. The pattern is Cabled Baby Hats - Ten Cable Hat, knit on size 5 needles. I cast on 80 stitches. The socks were knit on size 3 needles.
I'm working on 2 pairs of socks and still need to finish the sweater for Ashtyn. As soon as I finish the sweater, I'm casting on Cassis for myself. I've already got the yarn in from The Loopy Ewe.

Happy Knitting!!

2010 - End of the Year Wrap-up

It has taken me awhile to get around to this post. These are all items that I finished in 2010.

These are my Christmas socks, knit in String Theory Colorworks - Continuum - Kinetic Energy colorway. The pattern is March Mosiac Socks on 2.25 mm needles.

These socks were knit for Debbie. They were made in 4 days, gotta love stockinette. The yarn is Opal 3204 on 2.25 mm needles. Love the way this yarn knits up.

Ignore this skein of yarn. I don't know how it got in this post.

This little set was knit for baby Clark, who is almost one year old. I have yet to send it to them. The yarn is Lorna's Laces sportweight in Jeans colorway, knit on a size 4 needle. The hat is 2x2 rib with 88 stitches casted on. The socks were knit on size 3, cast on 32 stitches.

This baby blanket was knit with Sunshine Yarns in sportweight, Boulder Flatirons colorway, on size 5 needles. The pattern is Cavendish Throw in the book Simply Noro. I casted on 146 stitches. Finished size is 29" x 31". I made it for Candice to give to give to Brady's nephew, Coll, who was born 1/3/11. It took about 3.5 skeins of yarn, with enough left over for a little hat and/or booties.

This pair of socks was knit for Mona. It is from the November, 2010, Loopy Ewe kit. The yarn is Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! I love this pattern and this yarn.

This scarf was knit for one of Alex's teachers. The yarn is Cascade 220 in a maroon color, held double, on size 15 needles. The pattern is Scrunch Scarf by Susan B. Anderson.

That's it for 2010. The following are totals for the year:


  • 1 pair of mittens
  • 1 girl's top/1 boy's vest
  • 4 scarves
  • 7 baby blankets
  • 8 pairs of booties/socks
  • 1 sweater
  • 12 hats
  • 26 pairs of socks

That's a lotta knittin'!!!

I still have many things on the needles: one single sock (need to make second), my Wendy's Pi Shawl (almost finished, think I just need to do edging), Yarntini blanket (about 2/3 finished), a couple of scarves that I've lost interest in, February Lady Sweater that I've decided to frog, and maybe one or two other things.

I am really not good at setting goals, so I am just going to list a few things I'd like to focus on in 2011: try to be more monogamous (so far, I've made a sweater for Ashtyn and just need to sew the arms on, and I'm in the middle of a Hitchhiker scarf in Wollmeise), I'd like to make a nice size shawl in Wollmeise lace-garn, and I'd like to finish up a few WIP's. Of course, I'll keep making socks for sure.

So long, 2010.
