Knitting Up A Storm!

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

January has been a very good knitting month. I knit up 16 balls of yarn and gave 3 to good will for a total of 19 balls reduced from the stash! Yippee kai Yeah! I knit 2 scarves for streetknit.ca, 1 scarve for Julianna to give as a birthday gift, 2 pairs of socks, 2 drive thrus and started Wicked.

Man, am I wicked. I am hoping I can knit at least half of what I did this month and try to keep it up for the rest of the year. Okay, okay, I know, I'm pushing it here, but let me live in my little world and think I will be this knitterly good.

Here is a picture of my toe ups, well one anyway. I could not get a decent shot of both (I know this isn't the best either), so to at least post the pic, I hoisted my foot up on the counter. Trust me, there is a 2nd one!:

I used Online sock yarn and because I bought one huge ball, I couldn't make them match. Oh well. It will drive me slightly insane, but I will wear them never the less. This is the first time knitting with this yarn, and it is okay to knit with, and feels so so on my feet. I kind of feel every stitch that I knit - weird. I was going to make a pair for Julianna with the left overs, but I don't think I will now. She won't like the feeling either.
