Knitting Update

I've been doing a lot of knitting without blogging lately.

First I finished these, which I call Fe Fi Fo Fum

Iron Ions

Hand dyed by Nerdclub2000 as part of her chemical elements, this is Iron Ions (hence the name). It spoke to my inner chem geek.

Next were these, for my mom.


The pattern is Hourglass from Knitty. I entered them in Knit'n From the Heart's Socktoberfest and despite some initial confusion I won first place. 20% off sock yarn for a year!

After all of that pattern going on I decided to knit another pair of plain socks

Lion and Lamb

They're out of some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock I bought awhile ago at 3 Kittens and finally got around to using.

Now I've decided that with winter coming I need a new set of hat and mittens.

Cabley Green Hand Warmth

Turns out that this was a good decision as there was a wee bit of snowfall today. None sticking to the ground yet, at least.

Thus ends the crazy long update. Clearly, I need to update more frequently. That shouldn't be a problem as I'm going to attempt NaBloPoMo again this year.

Wow, lots of socky goodness t here! And I really like your mittens, too.

I might try NaBloPoMo again. I did it last year and again in August and it seems to be t he kick in the derriere I need to keep me blogging!
