WIPs, Pressies, Porn and Dog

Maybe I shouldn't say porn in the heading but if you got here thinking to get hot and heavy- Nah hah!!! Its Yarn Porn goodness from my CASP!!

ohhh and If she is reading this- I forgot to ask you the purple wool in the last package, what is it- it is soo soft I am using it as my pet yarn- it sits by the computer getting petted daily!!

ok, porn- well my amazing and yet unrevealed CASP sent me this great package:
















which included Mountain Colours Sock yarn in Larnspun colourway- seen here.
















As for the blogstalking- it was photo your wip's - well I am a wimp- I do not want to look at them in fear of never getting up the nerve to start the new projects that the yarn is bought, wound and ready to rock for.

So you get a list:

First up: SSS
1) Anastacia toe ups- only one done as my bind off is too tight and I don't know how to do it any looser- so will be frogged and become a different pair of socks.

2) Secret Sockret-Pal socks- one down, one to go, one month to do it in- must find and finish it!!

3) Baby sock- one knitted, mother didn't like them, will finish anyway as I disagree on the 'too loud for baby' comment.

4) Baby bootee- am finishing no 1 again as I miscalculated and K3tog instead of k2tog somewhere and ended up somewhere where I shouldn't of.

By the way if anyone knows of another bootee or basic baby sock pattern where seaming is little or none please let me know


5) Baby cardigan- on hold because of number 6

6) Baby kimono (from Summer IK 2005) being knit at rapid rate due to baby shower being on monday so EVERYTHING else is on hold.

7) Somewhat cowl- still on hold - knitted on every now and then

8) Fairisle jumper (Vogue Fall or Holiday 06) - see above

9) Flower Basket Shawl- Still needs blocking.

10) Fake Fur Sirdar Bear- Is painful to knit and seam so looks like getting dumped in favour of knitty norbert pattern.

And I really don't want to add more to this list. So please help me not start anything new for now- but if you know where I can get some olive lace yarn so I can make a shawl to match my olive silk dress for my sister's wedding that is the only purchase I will make. (for now)

And cause she is soooo cute- gratuitous skeeta shot!

You could try the sewn bind off for your toe-up socks, it's much looser and not very hard. :) Someone blogged about it here!
