Wollmeise carnage

Wollmeise sock yarn carnage


The culprit (a.k.a. my squirrel chasing, lizard and yarn hunting, Cuqui)

My mini dilemma:

Should I

a) spend countless hair pulling hours putting the cake back together or

b) chuck it and allow the poor Wollmeise cake rest in piece

Yes, it indeed has been QUITE a while since my last entry...My poor neglected blog! From here on out, I promise to visit EVERY day! Er..or at least once a week...

I have restarted organizing my knitting WIPs and stash. I have told myself(yet again) to NOT indulge on any more NEW lovelies until some of these WIPs are actually finished. This week has been devoted to finishing...a LOT easier to say than do! I have yet to count how many current WIPs I have squirreled around here and am sort of afraid to do so!

For now, I have NINE, yes, count 'em, nine projects I would love to finish before the July. As of now, I have only six photographed.


Pattern: Eastscarf by Norah Gaughan from Norah Gaughan, vol 3

Yarn used: Berroco Inca Gold in Verde Oliva (total 3 skeins)

Needles: size 7

I am surprised that I haven't finished this one up yet! It is SO much fun to knit!

Noro Scarf

Pattern: Noro Scarf by Jared Flood

Yarn used: Noro Silk Garden in 270 and 252 (total 4 skeins)

Needles: size 7

These Noro scarves are like popcorn at the movies. They are a must to knit when watching tv/movies/etc!

Gusset Heel Basic Sock

Pattern: Gusset Heel Basic Sock by Wendy Johnson

Needles: size 1

Yarn: Duet Skinny Sock Yarn in Cedar Swag

I must say that I have this pattern memorized down to the T. I find that this is best toe up pattern to showcase handpainted yarn and is not at all bulky for wear. Now, if I can only finish an actual PAIR of socks...

Gusset Heel Basic Sock

Pattern: Gusset Heel Basic Sock by

Needles: Size 1

Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock in S164 (left) and Noro Kureyon Sock in S185 (right)

I was not a fan of the Noro Kuryon sock yarn when it first came out. I must admit, it did grow on me. I truly enjoy watching the different colours "appearing"!

Textured Gansey Socks

Pattern: Tradition Gansey Sock by Wendy Johnson from her FANTASTIC book, Socks From the Toe Up

Needles: 1

Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy in Good Luck Jade

I will have to continue with my "to finish" list later this week. For now, I will leave you photo from my latest trip: India.

India February 2009

Little Loopy was ALMOST confiscated at the security checkpoint of the Taj Mahal. After MUCH cajoling...ahem...Little Loopy found his way in to see one of the great 7 wonders of the modern world.
