good juju socks

So I scratched the Rainbow socks, it just wasn't looking right with the yarn. I went searching on Ravelry and found these Flutter-by socks! so darn cute. I've finished the first one and I'm about halfway done with the second. unfortunately they did not bring good juju to the Red Sox, so for now its GO PHILLIES!

I've also been working on my friend's baby gift (even though the baby is already here, the gift won't fit her until next winter). unfortunately cannot post photos here since she checks the blog occasionally, so for all you Ravelers out there, check it out on Ravelry. I just updated the photos tonight.

speaking of hats...

I just finished knitting Miss Dashwood for Gretchen's winter hat. its absolutely adorable and I'd knit it again in a heartbeat. the picot cast on was a royal pain in the butt though I might add. I used my beloved Malabrigo in Violetas. I'd been holding onto it for a long time, knowing I wanted to make Gretchen something with it and its the perfect yarn for this hat. I want one for me...

these are the best pictures I could get as she wouldn't sit still like a typical 10 month old. I'm also trying to figure out the new camera. once I get better pictures I'll post them.

Good Juju socks

Its baseball playoff season again and as most people who know me realize I will be glued to the TV watching the Red Sox play. On Ravelry the Red Sox group is doing good juju socks for during the games. I'm in need of a sock fix after knitting many many hats in the past few months. my contribution will be Rainbow Socks in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi: Rainbow. I bought the yarn for myself on my birthday specifically for this pattern.
