She Knits???

Figured it's about time to show some knitting. Unbelievably I do still do that. Wouldn't know it from this blog though.

So here's some things that are on needles - the sock edition.

Firestarter socks in STR - bleeding hearts colorway. Love the yarn - love/hate the pattern. The directions for the gusset are kind of sort of unclear. It's one of those that tells you where to put the marker (which I ignored) and then bases the rest of the directions on where the markers are located. I've already done it once & wound up with my cable stitches in the wrong place - I didn't like it so it got ripped - now they're in time out. This is why I usually don't follow the directions for the heel & gusset.

Socks of my own recipe in this wonderful stuff I got at MDS&W last year. Wish I could find the label cuz I'd by more. It's that good.

These are in time out too. I think they're destined to be ripped - the fit sucks. Look at that gathering in the heel - ick. The yarn is Koigu & I think it's just too fat for the pattern as it's written. I've already worked the pattern as is to the toe - but they were WAY to long. I could gift them but I'm to lazy to re-work the numbers to make the lenth work with the awsesome patterning on the bottom.I'd rather just rip 'em out - I think.

What do you do with your stash? Mine is in these.

A total pain in the ass when you need something in the bottom tote. Stuff usually winds up sitting around in bags & piles till I get the motivation to get into the totes. Totally getting on my nerves. So I bought these under the bed bags.

They're AMAZING!! Less space - more room! How is that even possible???

I heart them SO much! The yarn actually gets put away & it's easy to get out. It's wonderful to not feel overwhelmed by all the yarn!!!

My niece came to my house this past weekend.

I want to knit her 10 more - it's SO CUTE!!! How did I not know it would be this cute on her??

But how do I make the sleeves longer? For the life of me I can't remember which end is knit first and wether or not I can lengthen the sleeves. I knit this sweater - I know I did - but I don't remember how it works... guess that's the suprise *g*
