More FO's And New Starts

My KOTR Kal first completed socks. The pattern is "Denmark", started these back in May - the 14th and finished the pair 18 June. The second pair "Canal du Midi" are coming along nicely - the pattern is so such small type 'tho! I'm going cross-eyed! I am working a pair of "Jaywalkers" in between just to give myself a break.

Summer of Socks - my first one. This is going very quickly for some reason - perhaps because I'm ignoring my lab assignments and knitting instead! Cast on 21 June 2006 - the official start date and using Dalegarn Baby Ull.

Annual Knit In Public Day

I had very good intentions but it is so rainy and miserable today, I did a token stand on the front porch in front of all the neighbors (not many around) and that was my "Knit In Public". I don't really need a special day to knit in public - I'm "Out" and proud with the knitting thing, there are just too few good knitting hours in a day to waste them. Am I right? Yeah, of course. Hope the rest of you participating had wonderful weather and good turnouts. Cheers...

Rainy Weekend - Good Knitting

So... Let's see, Project Spectrum May wrapped up and I'm proud to say I got a project done in the actual allotted timeframe. (pics to follow - here now). I am going to dive right in to the next KOTR sock "Canal du Midi" today, hopefully to get caught up with the rest of the KAL'ers. "Denmark" is languishing - I don't like the yarn at all. I'm not sure if I've got a bad skein or if I've become spoiled by some of the artist-spun merino I've been using; but this Invicta feels like straw! I may try the design later in something stashed. PS June yarn is on it's way - I think I have a suitable "theme" pattern to do those up in. And I need to work on the math for one of my own designs (still - I am the Queen of Procrastination). I started back to school on the 29th of May and unfortunately, it's cutting into my knitting time - need some simple projects to do on the commute back and forth to the College. I'm off to loo…
