Done. For awhile there I lost my knitting mojo but I think I got it back. I just couldn't seem to get anywhere on ANY project. It seems that a quick pair of socks got me back in gear. I think I stalled out because of the endless 1x1 rib on the Origami Sweater.

But now that the socks are done....all I have to work on is the Origami Sweater again.

What? Make another pair of socks you say? Well, ok!

Origami Sweater

Two weeks ago there was an adorable sweater sample hanging at String in Highlands Ranch. I tried it on. It was awesome.

I found the *perfect* yarn for it -- at 75% off I might add!

Then I read the pattern.....the first section is merely 38 inches of 1x1 rib across 66 stitches. I'm almost done with that section. The second section is 68 inches of 1x1 rib across 146 stitches.

I am so glad that I am able to knit 1x1 rib with my eyes closed. I think I knocked out about 8 inches of this while resting my eyes on the couch at the shop (www.EpiphanyTattoo.com) this afternoon!

Finally finished Dirk's "sassy stripes" socks. I been pretty lazy in the knitting arena lately and I need to get my knitting mojo back on!

Last weekend at String in Highlands Ranch I picked up a great sweater pattern and the angora/merino blend yarn for it! However, it's 1X1 rib in DK weight. For you non-knitters, it means that this is going to take me FREAKIN' FOREVER. But it also means it will be a project I can knit without thinking about and can work on at Friday Night knit nights. I rarely actually knit at these gatherings, so I'll now be able to prove that I do actually knit things!

I'm very pleased at how this pattern knit up! It had been in my knitting queue for a few years and I've finally got around to making them. The pattern is clear and well-written, also it's got enough patterning to be interesting without being too difficult to "read" as you go!

Yes, I'm still alive and knitting! This sock pattern has been on my "to knit" list for quite some time and I finally got around to it. I finished the first sock last night and need to get started on the second one tonight.

I don't normally knit my socks to a specific pattern and am much less likely to knit them cuff down, one at a time on double pointed needles, but I enjoyed the change of pace with this pattern -- and I *love* the star toe!
