Yes, I have actually been starting and finishing projects.  Here's the Proof!!

Spilt Milk Bog Jacket. all edged. and I even put a little teddy bear button on it!! I still hate teh kitchnered part, but I'll live. 

And here's my coriolis socks. 11 days to make the pair. I LOVE them. they fit perfectly!!!!!!
and the ruffly anemone cuff is really cutsie. (Thanks for modeling them for me Cassie! I hate my legs and I just can't lose any more cute socks to my mother!!)

And in addition to those, I've started 2 more pairs of socks (polar opposites, yay!) Fairy Tales and Highland Reels...........

and I've pulled K2P2 out of hibernation... proof of that too!

It was Stitch N Pitch here in St. Louis this weekend. My camera batteries were going very slowly so I only grabbed a few pics, but i'm going to try to steal a few more from friends.....     

The socks next time.....

progress and decisions

i know i've been mia for a bit, but with good reason. 
i'm actually finishing projects!

what has gotten into me??????

the spilt milk jacket is all sewn up and ready for edging. i'm kind of not happy about the kitchnering. I am really tempted to pull it all back out and do it again. i want to knit one more row and then kitchner it. right now there is an extra purl side and i'm just not happy. perhaps i'll weave in all the other ends and wait to show the girls at knit night.

in the mean time, I used my dye pot luck to very quickly knit up 1 coriolis sock. love it! did it in 4 days.
Me, a sock in 4 days.......
now i'm trying to decide if I want to knit the second one up this week, or start my fairytale sock from Gryphon's sock club.......


summer's here. still only the two part time jobs for now. that means a negative yarn budget (knitting from stash only! and perhaps i'll swap/sell a bit of it on rav, too), but plenty of time to knit!!!!
somehow i have a feeling that i'm going to become a permanent fixture at my fave yarn shops and starbucks too.

not a bad way to spend summer.
