In the aftermath of knitting Jeanie, I have found myself in a frenzy of knitting. I'm back to the point where work feels like a major barrier to my creative needs. The carpool driving means an hour out of my knitting time, though the wait-time is all about knitting.
In this frenzy, I'm actually finishing things, sometimes. First I have the stripey socks to show. These were actually done knitting probably two weeks ago, but it took me a while to weave in the ends. I was too busy knitting!
They fit the grrl and fit her well! The socks have gone to school today. Look how well those stripes line up. Let me remind you, I was knitting from opposite ends of the ball!!!
I also used some Knitpicks Andean Silk that I had on hand to make up some donation hats. The yarn was designated for some Christmas gifts, but I decided it wasn't exactly what I wanted. So the gifts will use a different yarn, and I couldn't let this go to waste! I'm very happy with the yarn. It has a lovely soft hand, knits up quickly on size 9 needles, and makes a lovely product.
