Well the tropics are a bit busy these days....
It's too early to tell which one(s), if any, will hit us here in Central Florida. We'll get more rain (which we don't need) and we'll have more beach erosion (which we also don't need). Meanwhile, I'm very happy I live on high ground.
Next in news is that I am now employed again (at least temporarily part time anyway) which I'm happy abt because I'm earning a bit of money, but not happy because it eats into my time to work around the house which eventually eats into my knitting time. However that doesn't mean I'm not getting things done! Here are two finished items I finished over the wknd.
This is my Waffles for Brunch vest for CIC. I was gifted the yarn to make up some items for CIC and I have to say it's pretty nice stuff. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky yarn in the color Grape. It knit up well and the yarn was really nice to work with. I started it on 8/17 and finished it around 8/25. I say *around* since it's supposed to have sleeves. I'm having a REALLY tough time with them so I decided that this *sweater* was meant to be a vest!
And these are my standard Super Quick Baby sock pattern that I like to use, but I added a bit more to the cuff and foot to fit maybe a 3 y/o instead of a 2 y/o. Either way they are the same size and will fit somebody. Sock #1 was done on 8/30 and #2 on 8/31. They only take me a couple of hours to do and I needed a break from the itty bitty needles. I used Lion Wool for these guys. First time I used this yarn as well and while it's ok, the Knit Picks wool was MUCH nicer to work with. If I made wool sweaters I would definitely use the KP wool.
I was hoping to have my other sock finished in time for SOS08, but I didn't make it. I'm just abt to start the gusset decreases and I'm hoping to be done by the wknd.....
.....while I watch the wind and the rain. Maybe I should think of knitting a boat.
Do felted items float?!
