No Idle Hands
I've been keeping my hands busy with knit and crochet lately--I'd like to use up as much yarn as possible before I move! Much easier to cart a pair of socks than odd-shaped balls of yarn. ^_^ Here's a glimpse of the project that's been keeping me occupied as of late:
Here we are at the beginning of the corregated ribbing. This is the first project I've done in two color knitting, which I've wanted to try, but so many of the patterns are just... not cool.
A better idea of the ribbing. It's not as stretchy as normal ribbing with the two colors involved, but it looks like it'll hold up the socks, just the same. More in-progress shots to come.
The other project I'm working on is a huge, and I mean huge blanket in crochet. I don't know what I was thinking when I made the foundation chain. It's wide enough to cover a queen-sized bed with drape to spare. I figure, if anything, it'll be a great blanket for curling up with in front of the tv, and to keep me warm during San Francisco's cool nights. And it'll be a blanket to treasure forever and ever, of course. ^_^
That's it for me--the shower is calling, soon to be followed by my bed. ^_^
