Here are some pics of my the front half of my mom’s sleeveless shell. I have finished all the lace, and am now working the boring stockinette stitch. I am eager to finish boring St st so that I can start the lace for the back of the shell.
I finally took a picture of the Finding Nemo fish hat! It has been finished for a while, I just need to wash it now (notice how it doesn’t hang down in the back). Once I get the hat washed the yarn will soften up and it will look a lot better.
I am really excited about my pompom peds. I was afraid to run out of yarn, so I stopped knitting the first sock and put it on a circular needle for now. Meanwhile, I have started knitting the second sock on the dpns. I wish I had two sets of size 2 dpns so that I could knit the socks at the same time, but I don’t really NEED the extra sets of dpns. Hmm… once I start knitting more socks I will have to ask for double sets for Christmas or something. Anyhow, Here is where I am on the socks so far.
The Transformers Afghan is taking a while, but now I am taking my time on it. When I started making it I was stressed out about finishing it quickly, but I realized that as soon as I finish it I will want to make another large project, and I can’t d that for two reasons. One, I don’t have a pattern for anything large that I want to make. Two, I can’t afford to buy yarn for any large projects. The first picture is of an Autobot square, and the second picture is of five Decepticon squares on one circular needle. I don’t know why I didn’t think about knitting more than one square at a time. I thought that I would get my yarn tangled, but I placed each ball of yarn in a separate bag. Problem solved, no tangles!
