Making Progress...

Work continues on The Classic. It looks the same...just longer. The really cool thing is, I'm close to finishing it. Whew!!! That will be a relief. It's going to be a MONSTER blanket, very long. I shouldn't be surprised. I don't know how to make normal sized blankets...well, normal sized anything.

I do have pictures of the scarf I started on the way to see Kris. It's looking really nice.

And now it has a home. I was working on this at Creative Night last week (I meet with my scrapbooking friends on Thursdays) and my friend who LOVES lavender saw it and it was love.

I've also started a pair of booties that a lady at work asked me to make. I've never made booties before. This is only the bottom and then I work the design of the part that goes over te foot next. This looks small though...even for a newborn.

What do you think? Too small? I have LOTS of this thread left, I was thinking of making the 3-6 month size also to make sure that one pair would fit. It's a pretty simple pattern and shouldn't take too much time to make a second pair.

I'm still working on my socks and I'm doing pretty well. I've started the second one to try to avoid SSS (Second Sock Syndrome) and it's getting pretty close to time to work the heel.

I love socks! I found a website that has free patterns, Knitty, and a lot of them are socks and I'm anxious to start a new pair...always anxious to try new and better things. I need to focus on finishing some things first.

I've also been commissioned to make a scarf for a friend. My progress on that?

None. My next post will hopefully be titled "Finished."


  1. I LOVE the lavender scarf, too! It is so pretty. : )

    The bootie does look a bit would probably fit just perfect for a new born. Landon's feet grew quite a bit, he's a little-big foot now, but I don't know if that's normal, or if he's just an odd duck. : ) They are SUPER cute, though!!!

  2. WOW! I go away for a bit, and you go nuts! You have been BUSY!!
    Your knitting has gotten so advanced! I think the booties will be wonderful - I have no idea about size, however.
    Your trip to NY and Phili sounded like so much fun! So glad you had a good time.
    I love both cities- Washington, DC is another favorite of mine.
    gotta run now!

  3. Drea!

    Am I stuck on this page, or have you not posted?

    I hope everything is alright with you.
    Maybe just like me, you haven't had the chance to write?? Or you have felt you don't know what to write? (also like me?)
