Can't Stop!!

I've been working away at all my projects. I've made great progress on many of them and will post pictures of the finished objects. Here's one now. This is a pair of socks I promised a cousin:

I think they came out cute and I love the colorway. I'm also working on some socks, using leftover sock yarn. I got a lot of mileage out of this yarn and as soon as I'm done, I'll post a picture. I'm not minding the different color change.

I've started some socks for my sister-in-law Sue. The pattern is Jaywalker from MagKnits.com - it's fun to knit, though different than I imagined. Here's a picture of my progress.


I've also started another pair of socks with this pretty variegated yarn from Webs. The colors are vibrant and I love the colorway:


As you can see, not much progress, but I only started it yesterday.

I was making some fingerless mittens from Knitty.com, but they are way too small for me. Next time I'll pay attention to my sized hands - but they're a good gift to my niece. Here's a picture:


But never fear, I made another pair for myself out of the same yarn and it was inspired by someone elses patter - though I made up the dimensions, etc.... Here is the finished product - one hand shown:

I think it came out nice, if I must say so myself.

I can't believe that Christmas is around the corner. So much to do and so little time, so I'll sign off for now.

Great progress! Remind me what that variegated turquoise yarn from Webs is - I might need some of that!

Merry Christmas!

I love the yarn from Webs. Who made it?

Good work! By the way, in your earlier post you had two questions: how to mend a hole in a sweater and how to add a modular square onto a scarf.

To mend the hole, it's just like ending one ball of yarn and starting the next, or kitchener stitch, only easier. Get everything back in its proper position so there's only the one tiny snip. Thread a yarn needle with some matching yarn and work duplicate stitch for about two inches on each side.

To attach the next modular square, instead of casting on the entire first row of stitches, pick up half of them through the edge of the previous square, then cast on the other half.
