Marlene Socks are Complete

Today I finished my Marlene socks, and it was very on-the-edge-of-my-seat knitting.  I was so scared that I would run out of yarn, because the pattern called for about 50 yards more than I had.  I omitted two repeats on both socks, and it worked!  I ended up having about 4 feet of yarn left over.  It was a very close call.  I love the result.  I used Kertzer On Your Toes Bamboo, which is very splitty, very soft, and fuzzes a little as you knit it.  The color showed the stitch definition very well.  I am considering using the pattern Marlene, by Cookie A. again, but next time with a blue yarn.  Here are some pictures.  Enjoy.

Lacy Shawl is Complete

I finished up the Lacy Shawl, and I think it looks really nice.  I haven’t taken a good picture of it in the sunlight, but the following are pretty nice.  So far, this shawl has become very handy at night when my house is freezing.  🙂

I have also started working the Fairly Easy Fair Isle Sweater from Stitch n Bitch Nation.  I am omitting the fair isle part, and making the sweater in a red bulky yarn.  It looks really nice right now, but I may have to redo the bottom part since it is rolling up.  I will try to get pictures of it soon.

Oh, and one last thing, I have to say that I love this new toy I bought for Peanut.  It is one of those magnetic fish games that I used to have when I was younger.  He got it last Friday, and already two fishes have taped on eyes and I had to tape up a fishing pole.  What can you expect from a toy that costs $1.50?

Meet Baby the Penguin!

It has been so long since I picked up a hook!  I think that the last time I crocheted something was when I made a Winnie the Pooh dishcloth.  I had a lot of yarn left over from the Nemo hat, and I wanted to make something for Peanut, so I made a penguin.  The penguin pattern is from the Lion Brand website, and it’s very easy.  Essentially it is a bunch of circles and one ball.  As I was making it Peanut was amazed that it was becoming a penguin.  I began the penguin yesterday night, and finished it this morning.  Here are some pics.

We have finally gotten some rain here, and I thought it would be fun to play with my camera effects and take pictures of the storm clouds coming in on Friday.  I think it has rained on and off each day since then.  😀
