Knit for Yourself KAL

Ravelry's Portland Maine Knitters did a Knit for Yourself KAL hosted by me.

I deceided to knit myself a pair of socks. I used Knit Picks yarn in Farbe from my stash.

I used the 2 on 2 circular needle method using size 2 needles.

I started on January 1, 2010 and finished on January 19, 2010.

I used a pattern I have had for years as a handout from my local yarn store "Central Yarn"

I love this pattern as it is a basic sock pattern and when done fits very well.
This is the first pair so socks for this year. Off to knit more ;^)

Scrunchable Scarf Done

I finished the Scrunchable Scarf on the 12 th. Not sure if this is going to be the one I send to my buddy on Knit & Chat.

Knitting and Crocheting for 2010

Happy New Year 2010 !!!!

I have a plan for next Christmas, all my projects will be done for Christmas 2010. The plan is to knit or crochet a pair of socks and an afghan for everyone in my family. I have tons of sock stash and yarn for 3 afghans.

I started the 8 Color Afghan on December 25,20009. I used the yarn and colors posted
All the squares are finished I just need to sew it together. I will post a picture when finished.

I have socks started for my husband as well as a pair for me. ( I never knit for me )

Knit & Chat Swap

This is the first scarf I am making for the swap over at Knit & Chat forum. I will make a few more then will decide which one I will send my swap buddy. I love these swaps !!

It is the scrunchable scarf pattern found here.

I am using Simply Soft yarn in Autumn Red colorway on size 10 knitting needles.

This is a quick knit.
