More socks please

I keep felting socks! I guess it's time to make more.

I decided to add these to the chocolate knit along. The yarn is Sassy Sheep Oriental sock, in Red Wine and Dark Chocolate. The color is more red wine than dark chocolate, but I don't mind.

Birthday Yarny goodness!

I got some yarn the day before my birthday with a coupon from "The unraveled sheep"

two skeins of koigu, two skeins of sublime, and a skein of tofutsies

Yesterday I finished purchasing yarn with my Christmas gift card, and got a namaste bag and another skein of malabrigo with my birthday coupon. There is some extra yarn in the picture that I am not at liberty to discuss at the moment, but it is related to the birdy birthday club....

I ordered the namaste monroe bag in red it should look like this.

It should also be here tomorrow!

Aide for Haiti

Many designers have made their for sale patterns available to purchase with a percentage of proceeds going to charities to help Haiti. I have joined the bandwagon and will send a portion of my sales of Nordic Snowflake mitts to Doctors without borders.

I also tested someone else's pattern that will do the same thing: Not sure of the pattern name but will post it when I know.

these are also doubling as my chocolate knit along mitts.

The box is in the mail

I had a rather heavy package show up on my door step yesterday. It was a surprise as I had forgotten that I joined a post Holiday secret swap. My package is now ready for the mail. A little late, but ready to go. I am lame.... sorry secret spoilee!

Here is a picture of what I got

There was a septopus (only seven legs according to my spoiler), a box of brownies, and a skein of cascade 220 super wash in one of my favorite colors, I was totally surprised and happy. Shawn (shawn4equality on ravelry) also made a ninja mask cowl because I joked that I needed it because my tv room was so cold! Now for a select few of us modeling it... excuse my picture as I have no makeup on.

A seaman's cap for cousin major

I finished a seaman's cap for my cousin major, upon request. I knit to fit requirements that my aunt sent me. 22.5 inches around, and 16.5 inches earlobe to earlobe. Madeline and Sabrina are actually pretty close to that size. so they modeled it for me.

Jack's fingerless gloves

These are actually for my buddy Jack. He commissioned me to make them at the end of last year. I fit them in to my Obligatory knitting queue, and here they are. I hope they fit.

The good thing is that they are made from baby alpaca so they will probably stretch a bit.

First finished project of the new year.

I put the men's fingerless gloves down, on Sunday so that I could work on a non, for pay project. I dug out a half finished project that was a pair of mitts that didn't become a Christmas gift, and reallocated them to a Birthday gift for a friend.

So My October Moss mitts now belong to Robin. I dropped them off today.

First project of the new year

I started the pair of men's fingerless mitts for Jack, last night. I am up to the beginning of the first thumb gusset. These knit up pretty fast so it shouldn't take much.
