Plays with Yarn

A place where I can ramble about all things knitterly.

No clever intro, just FOs! (No pic of Clapotis yet, still needs blocking.)

First the felted marsupial tote in its unfelted state. (It's still not felted.) I used less than half of the yarn that was called for in the pattern. Granted, I didn't make the little inside pouch, but that can't make that much difference. (It's on top of a 17" Powerbook for scale.)

Again, I hired my trusty teddy bear to model for me. Super Mittens from Weekend Knitting combined with a simple stockinette hat, both in Jiffy T&Q. I didn't notice the way the variegation striped on the hat until I took the picture.

The Crenellated Toe-Up socks from Cool Socks, Warm Feet. Notice the non-crenellation, which I think is a little picot edging thingy on the cast off. Tried that. Didn't like it. Not a big fan of how this yarn stripes. I still have another ball of it too in light gray, which I might try to get rid of. They look funny laid out, because the heel is across 60% of the stitches, but they're pretty comfortable.

And a basic openwork scarf in what I call "Easter Egg Eros." I might actually wear it on Easter, who knows?
