Happy Wednesday! So this past weekend, I hoped to get a TON of knitting done...and I didn't. I am so behind on my Christmas knitting and my Rhombi, I'm freaking out a little bit. We'll see what I can get done this week and this coming weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Okay, I have to say, I've been bit by the hexipuff bug. Now, I don't plan (right now) to even attempt the Beekeeper's Quilt, but I'm making these little guys. I've made two so far (as you can see above), one in leftover Knit Picks Imagination in the colorway Frog Prince, and the other in Candy Skein Yummy fingering in Brain Freeze. Can you tell which is my first, and which is my second one? LOL, it's amazing how much better I got from the first to the second! I'm using Judy's Magic Cast On, and closing them with the Kitchner stitch. I wish I had more time to make these, as I can see how addictive they can be. Mine are coming about to about 2.5" from point to point, using a size 5 needle. I even went to Ikea to buy a jar with a lid this past weekend for them. Yes, I know...sad, isn't it? How into it am I, or will I be when I get free knitting time? I'll have a Candy Skein announcement tomorrow in regards to the craziness. How many of you are addicted to this crazy pattern? Check back tomorrow if you've lost your heart to hexipuffs!
I'm still working on my Rhombi and it's going good. I'm just in the long, boring part as I mentioned before, but I'm plugging along. I hope to finish the body soon, so that I can move on to picking up the sleeves. It fits great (hopefully I can get a picture of myself wearing it soon, but by the time my husband gets home from work it's very dark.). I can't wait to be done and wear it!
Last but not least, my MiL STILL. I know, I know, I'm STILL working on these. I haven't had a chance to knit much of the second sock, but at knit night last night, I finished the leg and am about to start the heel flap. I'm not following the pattern on the leg repeats, as I only did 10, instead of the 18 that it calls for. Of course, I forgot this last night at knit night, I forgot that and just kept happily knitting. I ended up having to take out only one repeat today, thank god, but frogging isn't helping my stitch count at this point! Oh well, all is good. I hope to be able to do the heel flap and turn tomorrow while I watch my nieces. I need to finish these socks this week, no if, and, or buts!
That's it for me today. What are you working on?
