FO: Cargo Pants

I finally finished T's cargo pants. I had been looking all over for elastic for the waistband, but never found any. So I knit up an I-cord for a drawstring and used that instead. I love the way they came out and will more than likely make another pair sometime in the future. My lovely T is modeling, they're just a tad too big right now so perfect timing for finishing them.

I used Rowan All Seasons Cotton in Mocha Chocolate.

Yarn Porn Friday!

now don't get used to this, I rarely get new yarn, but I used up my birthday money at KnitPicks and spent enough to get their free shipping. woohoo!

KnitPicks Shine Sport in Green Apple and Sky, this is to make an unmentioned baby shower gift for a friend.

KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Chestnut. I'll be making several gingerbread men from the Knit Toys book for Christmas presents for my numerous nephews.

KnitPicks Merino Style in (not in order) Asparagus, Rhubarb, Strawberry, Petal, Iris, Cornflower, Tide Pool, Dusk, Mint, Vanilla, and Frost. I'll be making a pattern from Knitty, Wildstripes for babygirl.

Finally, my first finished Jaywalker sock! woohoo!! I just finished it about 30 minutes ago. Love how it fits, can't wait to get the second one done so I can wear the pair =)

WIP Wednesday

I'm going to attempt to keep this up, so maybe some progress is made on my projects. Today is WIP (work in progress for my non knitting friends) Wednesday.

but first, my two new knitting books courtesy of a birthday gift and birthday gift card =)

First up is a Frizzato scarf made with Plymouth Yarn Frizzato in Red (got this at the local Stitch 'n Pitch).

Second is a set of 4 butterflies from the above Knitted Toys book. These are for my nieces for Christmas, one for each. I'm using KnitPicks Shine Sport yarn in various colors.

Third is my crocheted afghan project. I'm really disliking how the one skein is a bit darker than the others. I have about 4.5 skeins done so far, only 6.5 to go. sigh.

Fourth is my first Jaywalker Sock using yarn dyed in kool aid by the lovely ms. pixie riot. color is "love you till Tuesday." I've actually done a bit more on this since I took the picture this afternoon. really loving this pattern, so fun and easy!
