There's never enough...

So, it just now dawned on me that in my previous post I promised you another post this week, so, here it is! I know you were all (all two of you) just on the edge of your seats waiting for it, weren't you?


So, first up, I finished my real pair of the Easy Does It socks (pattern by Jane Rehfeldt). I am trying to find projects to use up my "fancy" yarn, so for these socks I used ArtFibers' Tasmania in color # 11.

I was really happy with how this yarn worked up, and am very excited to find another project for it, as I am pretty sure I have enough for another pair of socks!

But here are my Tasmanian Toes Socks:

I think my favorite thing about them is that they have a kind of camo effect. That just makes me happy, because my mom, who was in the army for almost 30 years, bought me the yarn.

After finishing the socks, I started on my next project--a vest using my Manos del Uruguay (Wool Classica) yarn. Here's a glimpse at the start of it:

I am almost done with it now, so there will hopefully be pictures of the completed project soon.

I have also completed my November swap square, and will be mailing that out to my sister soon.

Then, tonight I started yet another project, a TCU themed blanket that will be a Christmas present for a friend. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of that one, but will have them up soon I am sure.

So that's where I'm at for the moment. Plenty to do. Also, I have been fighting the urge to buy a "how to" knitting book/kit and take up knitting for some reason. Perhaps I should finish up some of my crochet projects first though...

Anyhoo, hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Take care,

ah, but knitting is such a nice compliment to crochet, surely you'll find time for both :)
