UFO Progress and

I finished sleeve #1 on Friday. Yeah. Do you think this looks like a Siberian Midnight?
Worked on the Breeze socks Friday night.
I finished the blue Christmas present socks on Saturday.
Yarn: The Leader, 100% Acrylic
Color 001 - Sky Blue
Pattern - 40 stitches, size 4 needles
Started the purple Christmas socks Sunday morning.Now I am back to sleeve #2.

No picture due to the heavy rain and dark conditions. I have 77 rows done on the sleeve. I have about 8 cm's before the decrease starts. This is taking so long because the pattern provides no chart only written directions. These written directions are per panel and each panel has a different amount of pattern rows. I have written them all down for the back and the sleeve so far. Sleeve #2 should fly. I hope.

Webs Needs To Stop Sending Sale E-MailsMore Christmas Knitting
Every one is getting worsted weight boot socks.

Wednesday, August 15, 2007

Not much to show on the sweater. Only 8 rows added to sleeve since last picture. The yarn is very dark and is quite difficult to work with inside. I do try to get outside to knit every day but I work every day and then come home and cook supper, go to the gym and then well it is not light out side. I will probably have to take some time off in order to finish by the end of August.
On the other hand or should I say foot the "Vog On" Bluebird of Friendliness is finished.
Yarn: Jaeger - Aqua Cotton - Color 329 Salvia
Needle: Size 2 Brittany
Pattern: Vog On - Knitty Summer 2007

UFO Progress

When I picked up my sweater from its resting spot I saw the "Vog On", "Bluebird of Friendliness". Should be able to click on the Vogs for larger picture. I will need to study the sweater for awhile to see where I left off in the pattern and honestly it may take a day just to figure that out. Also, with the dark colors I need some natural sunlight to help. This weekend should be very sunny but ..............

There has been progress on the Christmas gift. Done. I think everyone on THE LIST is getting worsted weight, plain ole boot socks. Of course I had to order more yarn from Webs and will still need more to acomplish this.

UFO's for Throughtheloops
This is the last time I worked on the "Peace Fleece" sweater. I had hoped to finish it by fall. I have joined Throughtheloops "UFO August". I guess I'll see how this will help to finish the sweater.

This is what it looks like as of August 6, 2007

Summer Solstice and The Official Start of Christmas Knitting

The sky is threatening to day so the photo's were taken with a flash, indoors.

Summer Solstice is finished.

Modifications to pattern include a flap heel and the "toe I know". I did not read the STR pattern after I changed the heel. The foot is 64 stitches with the pattern continued down to the toe.

I have officially started Christmas knitting:
