Long Overdue Socks

I started these socks a couple of years ago for one of my knitting classes at Jo Ann. However, in the midst of knitting them up I contracted Lyme's Disease, which sort of set into the parts of my body that were most stressed: i.e. my right middle and index fingers. The reason why these fingers were so stressed out was because these socks were knit of #2 needles and took 11 hours each to knit. Needless to say, I put them down for a bit until I fully recovered. Last January, I decided to finish up my projects left languishing, including these socks. I have to say, they turned out nicely and look even better on.

Aran Sweater

Just thought I might update this knitting blog. So I made this sweater for Griffin in 2008 or so and I have to say, it has heald up beautifully. Only took three months of knitting here and there to make! He is 11 now and is just about to pass it down to his little brother... but you know that magical wool- it stretches and stretches and still holds it's shape.

Cable Sweater part 2

Working on the second leg of the project: The Front. Not sure how this one is going to turn out since I screwed up the pattern a bit... the cable is supposed to be farther to the side. However I am not giving up hope just yet. When I sew it together I may be able to move the whole thing over. We shall see and I will keep you all posted. Posted by Picasa

Here is the infamous sweater, which took two months to knit and 14 skeins of yarn. I ended up felting it three times to get it the right size but my dad still never wears the dang thing. Guess what? He won't be getting a 61st birthday sweater!
