I decided that it was time to start another sock-- it's been too long.
I'm using Wool-Ease in a nice teal shade. I decided to do another anklet (my signiture thing). The ribbing is just a simple 2x2 rib. 48 stitches across. Size 4 US needles.
This is my clone of the pink one. However, it may as well fit a giant! I need to make sure that the back isn't too wide, so that it can pull the front sides a little bit more, so it isn't too baggy. It really needs a lot of blocking still, too. As you can see, i'm now done working on the left sleeve, and still have to make the back side. Then, i'll sew and enjoy! Cross your fingers, and hope for the best. :-)
So, here's a bag that I designed a few weeks ago. I'm pleased with the results. I named it my "All Twisted Up Designer Bag." It's made from a few skeins of Barnet's softee Chunky yarn. The liner is a camel color fabric.
Here is my "archive" of most of the FO's from the beginning of my knitting career in '03 to the first month of this blog's creation. Enjoy!
My first project, FO & scarf!

My favorite seagreen scarf that was too long, yet very warm!
