Knitting on..........

I'm making a little progress. I was stalled for lack of needles on my sweater, but I remedied that today. I had to pick up some size 15 dpns to finish the sleeves, because I LOST MINE! I hate it when that happens. I'll probably find them, now that I bought new ones. A lot of things seem to be disappearing at my house lately. I guess it's time for another organizing frenzy. Anyhoo, here's the sweater so far:

The sleeves will go really fast and I only have a few more inches on the body to go, so I hope I can finish it this weekend.

And, of course, I had to cast on some new socks......or I would not be a happy girl.

STR in Saratoga. Garter Rib pattern. I am so into ribbings right now. I just can't wait to try new ones out. They always look good, and they are such a nice, easy, no-brainer project to work on.

I love the STR! Those are going to be some gorgeous socks!

And the blog is looking good too! See, I knew you could do it!

Wow - so cool! I just ordered two hanks from Toni - Neptunite and something else - Lagoon maybe. Whatever. I'll be surprised.

STR - It's all good.

Beautiful socks. I haven't tried STR yet, but need to try it soon!

I'm a big fan of rib stitch pattern for socks.Ribbing makes for a great fit and much less drooping and sagging. It's my ribbed socks that I reach for first when they're clean.

Very nice colourway in STR. I just received one out of the three skeins that I purchased but have not chosen a pattern for it yet.
