Latest Knitting Progress
OK, so here are some pics of my recent projects, namely, Camelia, my ipod cozy, the Inside Out Sock, and the beginning of a gift sock for my friend, Claire.
Camelia is a Stefanie Japel design from her website and I
decided to use two strands of Karaoke (soysilk/wool from SWTC) in Fur Elise. I love the effect this is getting: not stripes, but a nice blended effect. I know a lot of knitters seem to hate orange, but I think even orange-haters could tolerate this combination of orange, lavender and brown. It is also hopefully hiding some of the errors I have made but reluctant to rip out. Yes, that is the hardest thing for me, still. I am definitely better but I still don't qualify for perfectionist status by any means.
I am not wild about how the Monsoon pooled on the Inside Out sock, but the sock was fun to do with the toe-up construction and the short-row heel. It kept me sane when I was sick as a dog with pneumonia last month. The Cascade Fixation sock for my friend is seeming very quick and easy by comparison. I love those colors, so I may have to make some for myself, however, if making two socks is a challenge due to SSS, how would I do with four?
I welcome comments on all of the above!
