I don't have a lot to say about this collection of photos. I just thought I would share my knitting ADD. Lots of basic socks that don't really have patterns, an EPS sweater for Sly, the first part of A Very Warm Hat, and some felted clogs.
There was a red sock, and now a blue sock!
Patterns: All improvised, basic (oatmeal) socks
Yarns: Red-Smart, Pink-Socatta, Blue-Opal
Needles: Pink 2, Red, 2, Blue 1
Like the Dr. Seuss rhyme? I don't really have much to say about these socks. All my readers must know buy now that I knit socks just because I can. I do love making them, but I also make a lot of them. These have been keeping my hands busy during passing period.
Pattern: Fiber Trends Felted Clogs
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino
These have actually been in this state of un-done-ness for a couple of weeks. I needed some thing warm and cuddly to knit while watch Ice Road Truckers.
Pattern: Very Warm Hat Knitting Around by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Yarn: Blue-Philosophers Wool, white-Fisherman's Wool by Lion Brand
Needles: I think a size 8
I just love the idea of this hat. It is going to be a great warm hat. I don't know if I'll keep it or give it away yet, but I will need to make several others I am sure.
Pattern: Seamless Saddle Shoulder from Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Yarn: Denim Style
Needles: 10 1/2
I have yet to knit a sweater for Sly. He is a big man, so it is nearly impossible to find patterns in his size. This sweater is a 64 inch chest. In addition, he tends to be very warm, and I am sure he would HATE a wool sweater. The cotton acrylic blend seemed like a good choice for him, and he liked the look to the Saddle Shoulder sweater, so I am giving it a go.
