Future Projects

Yesterday I had to deal with some unexpected car issues (not my car, but I’m doing my parents a favor since I had the time to go up to the dealership) and did not go to the yarn store. Kind of bummed about that, but it will be ok. After I work a few days at the retail shop I’ll use my paycheck to treat myself. In the meantime I am looking online for the needles I need just so that I can get started!

This weekend is highly lazy. Everyone is out except for me and my fiance is out of town too! I got a stack of movies from the library (Frida, Raising Victor Vargas, Life as a House, Sopranos Disc1: Season 3) because I’m waiting for Netflix to get the ones I sent back and send me some new stuff!

So, while I watch DVDs I’m going to knit. These are my upcoming projects:

*Finish the mate for the Regia blue / green sock

*Start / finish the mate for the purple Koigu sock


*Weave in ends on a flower facecloth, block it

*Tea Set (maybe)

*Deco-Ribbon Bag

*Silky Look Cardigan Need the needles for this one, I don’t want to work with Susan Bates needles on this one.

*Hat, with yarn sent to me from my Secret Pal, from back in May

My first sock on 2 circular needles, wow this is quick! I started Sunday evening, and will finish the toe tonight!! Yarn: Regia 4-color, (Fabre 5025, Partie 44134)

I really am diggin this socks on 2-circular needle dealio. I truly don’t feel like I’ve given more time to this particular sock, although being that it is summer vacation, it’s entirely possible. I noticed today that the pattern for the lavender eye pillow from Interweave Knits is on 2-circs as well… Yay! I think that I will treat myself to the yarn for that tomorrow following the car service appointment!

I’m not happy with how this grafting job came out – I think I did it backwards, because there is a ridge at the top.

How lucky am I though that in the latest issue of Knitty.com one of the features is about grafting!! Invisible seams here I come. I’ll have to try it on the blue-green sock and then whip up the purple sock companion on the 2-circs.
