This looks like an excellent community and I've gone back and read through old entries. You gals are fun! Anyone still around?

I'm currently working on knitting a tank top for my daughter with a cape on the back, a tote bag for my sister with a fun band's quote (shoplifters of the world unite!- ten points to whoever names that band!), and a bright turquoise shawl because, whatev, I want one.

What are you all working on?

The Smiths? I'm still around but not knitting as much lately.

You got it! Bummer, why aren't you knitting? I hit a dry spell a few months ago and didn't touch anything for about 2 months, but now I'm back and doing it more than ever.

Those sound like fun projects. I'm currently working on #20 Cross Bodice Top by Joan McGowan-Michael from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2012. I've grown very very fond of Vogue Knitting patterns lately.

Nifty! I bet it's going to turn out gorgeous. What kind of yarn are you working with?

I'm knitting (and writing the pattern for)a Fairy Elf Coat for my daughter, the Lace and Cables Cardigan, a Daisy Lace Scarf that I'm designing (here is a link to my post with the swatches), The Great North American Afghan, and a pair of socks--my travel project. Why yes, I might have knitting ADD--ooh look..something shiny.

That looks like fun! Lotsa variety there too, whoa. I've got a bunch of stuff on the needles other than what I listed, good lord. I've got the worst ADD these days! Also, comment was de-spamified. All comments with links automatically get marked as suspicious, unfortunately.

Please unmark my above comment as spam. It is not spam. I provided links to the projects that I'm working on.

I saw your comment in my email, off to go fix it so it's not spam! Don't know why lj does that with links, sheesh.

Oh, you're not going to believe this, but . . . a sock! Yes! A straight ss sock! Toe up, circs, purty purple dyed by my niece, and, wait for it . . . I'm not screaming and throwing things!

Can you tell I'm not a sock knitter?
Jul. 14th, 2012 03:32 am (UTC)
Oh dear, me either. I have made roughly 2 1/2 pairs of socks, and I'm hoping maybe later I'll be able to stand it. I've got a single sock that was super simple tubesock, no heel or anything, just a tube! And it's on #6s, with nice squishy yarn I love. But the sock has been friendless for a few months now, because I just can't do it. Also, it's for a kid. Kid with a big foot, but still... shameful!

I curse whenever I touch the damn thing, so you're way better than me, haha.

The community icon reminded me that one of my very first projects was a voodoo doll. In dark brown acrylic. With black dreads. I need to finish that, lol.
Jul. 14th, 2012 03:32 am (UTC)
That sounds awesome! My first project was a squid and he hangs from my rearview mirror.

I'm working on a bunch of socks right now. I've got one blue one done, but have put the second one on rest since I had to force myself to finish the first. I'm also making some "Ballet School Dropout Sockettes" with a stretchy purple and pink (mostly purple) self striping yarn. I'm planing on making a pair of normal sized socks with the left over yarn when I'm done with the slipper socks and the aforementioned blue sock.

I'm expecting a wee one though, so I'll probably drop all that and start working on baby stuff as soon as I find out the sex of the baby. I saw a really cute "tattoo hat" on Ravelry that I'm thinking I might borrow the idea of for a baby sweater or something. Love Tattoo Hats...it's someone's personal project, but I don't think it'll be too hard to reproduce.

Looks like fun! I'm horrible with socks, I've barely finished 2 1/2 pairs of them and they were all kid sized. So shameful!

That tattoo hat is adorable! I really dig it. I think I'd be tempted to embroider it, though. I've gotten really into embroidering lately. Using a smaller yarn for the heart and banner and smaller needles would make it easier to stitch into.

Ooo, baby stuff. I've got a Tiny Tea Leaves sweater started for my girls and can't wait to finish it. Next I want to try Laura Chau's Baby Bunting Sweater. They wear the same sized stuff so I'm able to justify making more cute things for them right now and I love it. I've got a niece coming in October too, so I've got a few tiny hats to make. Isn't it fun making tiny things? Or maybe this is your first? I don't know, but congrats regardless!

Like basketcaselady, my entry above this was NOT spam. It has a link to a free sock pattern and a link to the hats project page on Ravelry. Could you or the mod please un-spam it?
Jul. 14th, 2012 03:33 am (UTC)
Un-spamified, lady! I know it wasn't spam, lj did it automatically.

I love that! It turned out beautifully, too. I've got a friend who wants me to knit her a tardis -anything-, and this looks like it'd be a fun project to try.
