On the Needles

I have been working on 2 socks at once on Magic Loop. The pattern is Mock Croc socks from Knitpicks and the yarn is Knitpicks Merino Wool/silk comb. It's a lovely yarn, very soft. I am almost to the end of the leg and will be changing to a new heel, the Band Heel.

It will be the first time I've tried that heel so we'll see how it goes.

Here are the socks to date.







Also on the needles is a scarf made from 100% silk. The pattern is from One Skein Wonders. There is an error in the pattern in the number of cast-on stitches. I'm not sure if that is recorded anywhere.




The other item on the needles is the large Spiral bag in recycled Himalayan silk. I made an error and will probably have to take some stitches out but not too many. I made the mistake of leaving the house with the project but without the pattern and tried to work it from memory........BIG MISTAKE. I now write down the core pattern on a 3 x 5 card and keep it in my project bag. ugh!

I have no idea how to reply to comments individually. I have tried but to no avail. Blogger help is no help either.
So to answer a question from Betty as to where I purchased the spiral bag pattern, it is from JustOneMoreRow. It is a very easy pattern to learn and once you have it down, it's easy and you don't even have to look at the pattern again, at least until the end. I did line it by the sewing method, but am eager to try Betty's method as outlined on her blog. very cool indeed!!
Betty......are you knitting at the downtown library on the second Monday of every month with Ann Shayne's (of Mason-Dixon) group? It's a fabulous group and hope you'll join us if you haven't already. The rest of you will just have to be jealous. :-)

I'll take a picture of the recycled himalayan silk one that I have started. Its pretty cool. It will be the big bag.

Whew!! 2007 has arrived.......


End of the year is done and for commercial real estate, that is always a busy time of year. I did have some days off though for the holidays and I was able to spend some time knitting. I purchased the Spiral Bag pattern and I was able to start and finish it over the holidays. Here is the finished project in gray tweed. I've also started a larger bag in recycled Himalayan silk.
