Dirk's Wildfoote Socks

The socks have heels and I'm making my way up the leg. I had Dirk try them on and asked "you just wanted anklets, right?"

I thought it was worth asking......

On the Central Park Hoodie project, I seamed the shoulders, picked up for the hood and have about 3 inches of the hood done. The sleeves are currently blocking on the dining room table.

On the 'Wisp' project I've completed 10 repeats; only 7 more to go and I'll definitely be using the second ball of the Pash-Mohair.

Project Updated


I finished the sleeves on my Central Park Hoodie, blocked the left front and the back currently on blocking wires (thank you Kristina for letting me borrow them!)

I have an ancient digital camera that I hope to some day replace. I promise that this sweater does have the beautiful cables on it, you just can't see them due to the shitty photos my camera takes.

I'm also 7 repeats into the "Wisp" from knitty.com that I started last week and it's really lovely. Again, the camera took pretty crappy photos and unblocked it looks pretty lame. However, if you do want to see a photo head over to my Ravelry account (PixieM). Definitely going to need to get my own blocking wires to show this one off!

Knitty.com 'Wisp'

Apparently I have an illness that prevents me from finishing a project before I start a new one, but for this one I really had a good reason.

I got a phone call this morning to see if I could head over to YarnArts until someone else could get there to open the shop. When I got there I realized I didn't have a project with me to keep me occupied for the 45 minutes I would need to be there -- can you imagine the horror!?

Anyway, I grabbed some mohair and some needles that were floating around in my bag and started on 'Wisp' from Knitty.com in Mango Moon Pash-Mohair. You looking at how far I got before I left.

Central Park Hoodie Update: I'm almost to the sleeve caps! I plan to knock them out tonight while sitting on the couch.

I feel like I'm heading around second on this project and can see home plate in my future.

This photo is for Judy -- you can see the blue removable markers that are holding the two sleeves together so that I can keep them organized and in the right spot on the needles.

Cast on Sleeves for CPH

wooo-hoooo I finished the fronts this evening and cast on for the sleeves.

I'm on the home stretch....and terrified about seaming this whole project together.

CPH Update

No photos at this time but I have finished the armhole decreases on the front and am making my way to the neck line. I haven't had much time to knit lately and have a LONG list of things I want to make.....I need to get this sweater done so that I can start something new.

The husband's socks are coming along slowly. I suppose they would be going quicker if I was knitting on them, eh? I take them to work every day with the intention of knitting while on break and I wind up not pulling them out. Maybe today will be the day.

Central Park Hoodie Back

The back is done. This is version II. Version I was completed all the way to the armholes before I decided I didn't like the how the size was coming out on the needle size I was using.

I'm now about 1/4 of the way done with each front.
