Hey All;

Just wanted to share a couple of things that came off my needles recently.

First a pair of socks I call DayDreaming:



Second a sweater called Amhra'n Gra:




Am finishing up a pair of Yoga Socks that I have named Xanadu tonight. Then picks tomorrow.

What else is out there? Would love to see some stuff. Really enjoyed looking at the sweater and the goodies that Dee posted!

Love the socks! Very nice work on the sweater too.

Here are my latest FOs. I made them for my nieces.

Doll outfit for one niece's American Girl doll. Pattern was from Knitter's magazine, Fall 1998. Yarn is Rowan Designer DK.



Sweater for the other niece, shown with the doll sweater for scale. The pattern is Torgeir from Elsebeth Lavold's "Viking Knits Collection". Yarn is Rowan Designer DK.

Lori;

Adorable sweaters. Lucky niece! I especially like the way you did the faces with the sweaters. What a novel idea! Hope you don't mind if I borrow it.

Just finished an easy project while I was house/dog sitting for 3 weeks, no computer on the premises!

Red afghan, Lion Wool-Ease, knitted two strands together on size 13 circulars. This basket-weave rib pattern just wraps around me so nicely -- it's the first afghan I've ever made to keep for myself, out of the dozens I've gifted over the years.

Red afghan

I got the pattern from a library book; if I can find it on Amazon I'll post the info here.

Beautiful work Diana M. It looks really warm. It sounds so relaxing to be able work on project like that without having to put it down then pick up up months later because life gets in the way.

Your afghan looks so cozy - I love the color.

I haven't been able to commit myself to any blanket type knitting yet - not even in my head. I'm too slow. I'm still knitting sleeveless or kids' sweaters.

Knitting has sure given me an appreciation of how *fast* I can sew.

Actually, because of the simple pattern, needle size and the doubled yarn, this went pretty fast.

Even so, if I had a weekend to whip up a wedding gift, I'd choose a simple quilt over a simple afghan any day!!

Afghans do make great gifts. I too have given them as gifts and finally made one for my son, which is actually in my family room and used constantly!
The color of yours is great!

Hi Lori,

I love the little sweaters! Your work is gorgeous, and the way you have it displayed is wonderful!

I have been working on my first Intarsia project, a scruffy cat on a patterned background. I sincerely hope I will be finished by tomorrow. I have several other little projects waiting for my attention.
