Random WIP post just to prove I still knit

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.

One sock

Two sock

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

Needles: 13

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.

I love the pattern in the hat, very pretty.

Deb's always warm too...what about a vest in "silky wool". ;)

I was appreciating the socks and thinking to myself that I need to knit another pair of Fiber Trends clogs, and then the hat jumped off the screen at me. It is really beautiful.
