Knit, knit, knit

What I’m not posting about today

• I could post about the yarn I spun, from the batts I posted last week — except the yarn is still on the bobbins.
• The project I’ve been spending most of the week on is still not quite ready for its close-up, either.
• I didn’t knit the royal wedding. And I didn’t even wake up early to watch it.
Yarn School is underway, and I’m kind of sad I’m not there, experiencing it again.
• I’m tentatively gearing up for Project Spectrum, which starts May 1, but I’m not sure how avid I’ll be, considering my other commitments. Still, I bet it’ll be fun to stretch myself and how I look at and think about color; join us?

Word Lily knits

Instead, I guess I’ll share a couple finished knits.

I finished the short socks I talked about a few weeks ago.

Not sure who the end user of these will be yet. But, making them set my brain a-whirling! Hopefully this brainstorm won’t fizzle, and I’ll have more to share on the subject.

I also wrapped up the hat I mentioned in that same post.

Again, just a basic hat (the whole cobbler’s children situation, now somewhat remedied), but I think that’s what he wanted.

I also finished a couple other socks, but no, they’re not a pair!

Sunrise Socks

This yarn is super squooshy.

I tried several different needle sizes and sock sizes before settling on this combination. These should fit my husband.

Rivercat Socks

These socks (I cast on for the second sock last night) are for a much delayed swap with a friend.

They seem super-skinny, but I think that’s mostly because of the ribbed nature of the pattern.

I seem to be falling down a sock-knitting hole this year, after taking 2010 mostly off from that particular obsession. I can’t get enough! 😀

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
