Half Finished

I’m not talking about the Audrey sweater.  I’ve finished a sock, and started the second of the pair.  The yarn is Sheep’s Gift, from Joslyn’s Fiber Farm, in the color Montego Bay.  Here are a couple pictures before I finished the toes:

And after:

Yes, I have big feet.  It takes more than the average amount of yarn to make socks for size 10 1/2 feet.

This is the Blueberry Waffle pattern; I’ve been working on these a while in between other projects.  Socks make a great portable knitting project.

I’m just to the end of the increases on the front of the Audrey sweater.  For some reason, I had to redo one section of the increases twice.  I was more than a little cranky over this.  I did the “make one” increase wrong twice in exactly the same place after tinking back, leaving a big honking hole.  I’m sure this was intended to make me humble as a knitter.  No picture, as it still looks just like the back piece.  I thought I would spare you pictures of the holes.

I will leave you with these pictures.  I have never in my life put bumper stickers on my car before this election year.  I will make an exception for this year.

  1. Those are the funniest bumper stickers I’ve ever seen. Sad that they mean so much.

  2. Thanks for the link! I ordered one for my daughter’s dorm room door. I know she’ll get a kick out of it. She’s an R.A. this year, too. (they didn’t seem to have any more “somewhere in Texas” ones, darn. At least I couldn’t see one.) I love the “pro Bush” ones, too. Hilarious!

  3. The socks look great! And I love the bumper stickers, too. Audrey, for her part, is looking fantastic. My LYS owner was wearing one the other day, and I think it looks even better on real people than in the Rowan photo. (I tried to send you an e-mail earlier, but I messed up in some way, so here I am!)

  4. Ooh – I love your socks! And good for you for sharing those great bumper stickers. I’m thinking of moving to a swing state so my vote will count towards getting rid of Bush. (In NY my vote is the equivalent of preaching to the choir…)

  5. Thanks for the link! I got a kick out of the merchandise! I envision a “Green green lima bean” mug sitting on my desk soon!

  6. Love the bumper stickers! I might have to make an exception as you did and put some on my car!
