Here we go!

Hola dudes. Tano says thanks for the birthday wishes. 🙂 I thought I was going to have to work late tonight. Since that was called off, I decided to take a quick trip to The Yarn Tree. I love going there. Linda is super nice and remembers me all the time and that’s important to me. So here’s my first knitty purchase of 2008.

First Knitty Purchase of 08

I caved and bought the new KnitScene. When I first saw the preview online, I wasn’t crazy about most of the stuff in there. Upon closer inspection, it ain’t half bad. There’s a couple of things in there that are cute and interesting. And plus, I’m almost 100% positive that if I DIDN’T get it, I’d want to make something that’s in it 6 months from now when I can’t find the magazine ANYWHERE! 😆 I bought some Frog Tree Alpaca to finish my Somewhat Cowl that has been put off to the side because of lack of yarn. I also bought two skeins of Catalina Chunky Alpaca to make myself a hat similar to Shameka’s MJ hat. I just want a square top so I’ll be shooting for that. Speaking of WIPs, here’s a list of all those that I brought into 2008 (all of these link to my Ravelry project pages):

Sweaters & Tops

Shawls & Scarves


Bog Jacket

Bog Jacket_001

I’ll keep knitting this and finish it eventually. For now, I’m just not interested in it.

Wavy Feathers Wimple

Wavy Feathers Wimple

This will probably be frogged. Not interested. I wasn’t in the mood for that lace pattern so I did one or two repeats and then started knitting in stockinette.

Cables & Corrugations

Cables & Corrugations (2)

These aren’t too bad. They’ll probably be finished soon after the Toirneach Kilt Hose (see below).

Somewhat Cowl

Somewhat Cowl

Now that I found yarn to finish it, this should be done in the next week or so.

Honeybee Stole

Honeybee Stole Swatch (6)

I swatched for this but never got around to starting it. So it’s hibernating.


Plain Jane Socks

These are mostly Plain Jane socks so I knit on these when I need mindless knitting.

Central Park Hoodie

Central Park Hoodie

The body is done on this including the hood. I am currently working on the sleeves, two at once.

  Flame Socks

Yarn Ahoy Ashes & Embers socks (1)

This is a pattern I’m working on. One sock is done. Maybe I’ll feel inspired to finish the next one soon.

Baby Sweater

Baby Sweater

I don’t know when I’ll finish this either. Maybe when I need an emergency baby shower gift! LOL


Sidewinders (2)

One word: UGH!

Cable-Down Raglan

CDR with nice increases

Finished the body on this. I’m knitting the sleeves on 16″ addi circs. As I’ve mentioned before, these circs take some getting used to so I’m moving along slowly. If I get pissed off enough I’ll move the sleeve and do Magic Loop, altho the pattern is easier to knit in the round without splitting the stitches.

  Toirneach Kilt Hose


These socks are why nothing else has been knit lately. LOL I’ve been working steadily on these. I’m about to start the heel and then on to the foot of the second sock.

Fairly Easy Fair Isle

Fairly Easy Fair Isle

Straight stockinette mostly. I knit a row or two here and there.

  Fuego DosThis is my own pattern that I’m knitting again in a semi-solid color. I’m rewriting the pattern to make the heel easier so look for that in the near future.
