I haven't got much knitting done, I've been so sick the past two weeks. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things by trying to finish my December Sockdown sock. I really like the way the sock is turning out, I just feel too crappy to work on it. After this sock, I'm going back to my plain vanilla self-striping socks for a while, so I can concentrate on the two afghans I'm making, and well as my other shawls. These Socks That Rock socks hypnotized me to only work on them! Neglecting the rest of the projects. But, I'm at the heel of the second sock, I would be done soon.

Merry Christmas from the pugs

I tried to take Christmas pictures this year, but the lighting in our living room is bad and makes it difficult, but here are the better pictures of the batch:

Rocktober Socks

Yarn: Socks That Rock, in Rocktober
Needles: Size 1 circulars
Pattern: Just a simple 3x1 ribbing, continued down into the heel and top of the foot.

I love this yarn so much! I've already started another sock, using the same basic pattern, and Socks That Rock in Fire on the Mountain.

Rocktober socks

They are finished, and I will have pictures tomorrow after I get them out into natural light to take pictures.

Lizard Ridge

I have finished and seamed two strips, sort of. I need to figure out how to sew two of my extra squares onto the bottom of each strip, so they will be 5 "squares" long each. I'm starting to think I didn't really think this whole, "oh, I'll just sew one of these extra squares on at the end, wouldn't want to waste them! It'll look fine." thing though. (I made four individual squares before I decided to do strips instead). I'm trying to find the most invisible seam possible for attaching the squares to the strips. Everything I've tried so far has look shabby. But, here are the strips so far, sans squares, out in out first snow of the year! It's already almost completely melted away though, how sad.

This last one isn't crooked, it's stretched out weird over the snow.
