Knitting by Judy @ 4:08 PM

The Spring 2006 Knitty is out!

And, OMG, I’m published!!!!!

It’s right there, in black and white and lovely color. My magic toe-up cast-on.

I haven’t seen my name in print since about 6th grade. To say that I’m excited by this would be a gross understatement!

I know, I know… I’m easily pleased. And I know it’s not that cool to be doin’ the happy dance over here. But I am really excited! (Can you tell?)

Oh, yeah… the rest of this issue of Knitty looks pretty decent, too.

And the cast-on is now linked to via the Freebies page.

Fair Isle Fingerless Gloves for #1 Son

Sharp-eyed readers will note that there are two items crossed off the things to do list! I don’t recall ever finishing two things in one day before. It was a very good day!

First up are the replacement Fair Isle fingerless gloves for #1 Son.

I finished the last finger in the morning and then wove the ends in while waiting for my oil to be changed. There was another woman in the waiting area also knitting. I think she was working on a pair of socks, but since she was very heads-down with her pattern I didn’t want to intrude.

Sockapalooza Sock Pal Socks

Next we have the Beehive Cabled Sockapalooza Socks. I finished these up while watching a little TV on Saturday night. (Don’t I lead an exciting life?)

I just love these socks. The finished product is so soft and cushy. And I love the cables and the heel and the toe and the bind-off. It’s one of those finished objects that I look at and have a hard time believing that it actually came off my needles.

If my sock pal doesn’t like them, I will take them back in a heartbeat!

The particulars about both projects can be found on their own permanent project pages. You can get there via the link in the right side-bar, the FO-2006 gallery, or by clicking on the links in this post.

    • If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
