Here's what I made the other night when I was up until 1:45 a.m. Like I said, it's totally impratical, but it was fun to make.
I have made some practical items recently though. This is sock #1 to the Crusoe socks from Knitty. I realize that this project, too, is totally impractical if I never finish the second one. If only I could find that second skein of yarn . . .
I also made a Scribble Lace scarf for my friend's birthday. This is the first time I've used mohair and it is just heaven on the skin! I can't believe how warm this stuff is.
Then, here's a scarf I made for myself a few weeks ago using Liesel as a guide. I didn't want such a wide scarf, so I did just one pattern instead of the 2 repeats it called for. I just love leaves, don't you?
Finally, I hit a bit of knitting disaster tonight. I was chugging along on my Go Big Blue baby sweater for my nephew when I realized I had totally screwed up about 4 rows back. I just didn't have the patience to frog it tonight, so into the timeout bag it went. Grrr!
I have to finish it, though. Won't he just be adorable in it, with those big blue eyes?
