From the Depths of Holiday Knitting

As promised, here is a dispatch from the knitting basket.

I've finished my first pair of toe-up socks. They were destined to be a Christmas present, but when I saw how well they fit on my own feet, I uh, changed my mind. And, I'm fully converted to knitting toe up socks with a short row heel. They fit way better than the heel flap in my opinion.

Of course, not a day went by without me considering what socks to knit next. I've long planned to combine some sock remnants with a solid yarn. I've had this Nature's Palette in my stash for ages and this leftover Pagemill sock that I've been longing to see together... here are the results:

I'm almost done with the second ball of my Clapotis, just 1.5 balls to go. This is the project that is taking up most of my time. I really want to finish it in the next week or two so I'll have time to make a bunch of little things :)

I've also (guilt twinge) added to the yarn stash. I blame the BMFA mill sale. I didn't make it there, instead buying some stuff off of ravelry. I think I still saved money this way, but still added to the never ending yarn stash. When will I get the time to knit all of this yarn?

So how's your knitting going? What have you added to your stash?

Toe up are the bomb, now you need to try a nice star toe. Pretty and the fit is fab!

This is my first Christmas as a knitter and already I have more project ideas than I know what to do with! Must get faster!

Ooo I totally am going to look up the star toe. That will be with my next pair of socks.

Yeah, Thread Head I totally know what you're saying. After I'm done with my holiday knitting I'm going to spend some time learning how to knit continental-sty le and hopefully will become a speed demon knitter :)

Welcome

angelafall2013smallI'm Angela. I'm an obsessed knitter.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.

 

What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
