Knitting Transformer Squares like a Crazy Person

I have not worked on anything else but my brother’s Transformers blanket.  So far, I have managed to finish 3 of ten balls of yarn.  Two balls are still brand new, and the rest have been used for one square each.  I can get three squares from each ball, so by the time I finish the ten balls of yarn I should have 30 squares. 

I will try to get a picture of what all the squares look like together, but I have to wait til the sun comes out to take the pictures.  I have also started knitting my garter stitch cardigan, but it isn’t much to photograph seeing that I have only completed the first four rows. 

I am considering unraveling my Relm hat, since it was very big, and I don’t see myself really wearing it.  I plan on knitting up a small beanie and using the rest of the yarn I have to make a scarf.  I haven’t decided on a pattern for the scarf.  It will either be a ribbed scarf, or a lacy scarf.  I won’t be starting anything new until I finish my brother’s blanket.

Relm and one cabled sock

I had a strong urge to knit a hat this weekend, so I made Relm from the Knit.1 Fall/Winter 2008 magazine.  It was fun to learn cables without the cable needle, but the hat is very big.  I don’t think I will go back and make it smaller, since I don’t want to deal with the cables.  The hat is made from Angora Soft from Knit One Crochet Too.  It is very soft and very warm.  I almost broke a sweat from the few minutes of picture taking, of course its about 100 degrees outside.  I am wishing for a cold winter so that I can wear all the wonderful knits I’ve made this year.

I finally got a decent picture of my Cable Socks from my Sarah Dallas Knitting book.  I made the first sock in three days, but then I just didn’t get the urge to knit the second sock.  I think it is the lack of difficulty in the pattern.  It is a simple 6 row repeat that got very boring very fast.  I also don’t like how stretchy the pattern is.  It is so stretchy that the socks are almost slouchy, and I don’t really like socks that slouch. 

I started making my first pair of toe-up socks last night.  So far I have only made the toe, but it looks good.  The pattern I am using is Red Brick Road from the same magazine as the Relm hat.  The sock is mostly stockinette and two mock cables up the sides.  I plan on putting all knitting projects aside and finish my mom’s sleeveless tank today.  I already washed clothes this morning, and I don’t really have any plans for the rest of the day.  Hopefully I can get it finished by the end of this week.
