Knitting Progress and Plans

Whew. I've had a busy week! However, I did manage to work in some knitting.

I've completed another block in the "Block of the Month KAL" on Ravelry. I have not yet blocked this one - it's a nice lace pattern. My plans are to complete all 12 blocks this year and stitch it together into an adult sized blanket for Project Linus. As a result, I'm using RedHeart acrylic.

I started another pair of socks on February 20th and am about 75% done at this point. Socks knit up quite fast during my morning commute....as long as I get a seat! These are being knit up in Fortissima Colori Socka Color. It has a silver thread running through it that makes it glisten like crystals of ice. I should be able to finish these by the end of the week!

Oh, the new Knitty is out...and it has lots of gorgeous patterns! I've added 3 to my "queued" projects: "Shipwreck'', "Decimal", and "Imagine". Geez....I keep adding to my queue, but never starting anything that's in my queue! Somehow, I keep finding other projects to keep me busy!

One thing I still need to do is to start my "Stricken" socks (a Cookie A pattern). I'm doing it as a KAL in the MA group on Ravelry as well. All I've done so far is purchase the pattern and wind my yarn. I'm using Socks-that-Rock in a teal colorway. I love it!

On the spinning front, I haven't done much of that lately. I've been concentrating on knitting. So, for now, all I have to show for spinning is a really cool magnet that I got from my spinning swap partner. I'll show the roving and resultant yarn as soon as I get back to spinning....it may be a while though as I have a couple of KALs that I need to get busy with - the Sock KAL I mentioned above and a charity KAL for babies sponsored by my friend Kerrie.

    Ooh! I've knit that same yarn. It's other name is "Disco" which fits.

    The metal strand seems to make the socks more durable. I knit mine on size 0 needles and the fabric is a bit bulletproof because it doesn't stretch as well as the stuff without metal... but I swear these will last a few decades. And they look great!

    I'm not spinning right now, either. Love the magnet.

    LOL @ the magnet. That's fabulous.

    I'm about to queue a bunch from Knitty, too--very pleased with the patterns this time around.
