Baigneuse's Knit Fit

Just a place to post picts of my little ol' knitting projects.

Here is my first and only completed sock. All other attempts in the past were either abandoned or destroyed.

Sadly it looks so much better off my foot than it does on it.

This took a little over a day of knitting. Made from Caron Simply Soft in some leftover green on US 5 needles.

Yay Skulls!

Yay skulls! This is some of my progress on the double knit scarf I've got in the works. I think its deliciously evil. Save the warm fuzzies for some other family. This is just how we do it. Eventually this scarf will be for my sister but DK is super slow and tedious so it may end up being a Christmas gift.

In the meantime I've got other projects to break up the boredom. I redid the armwarmer I knit sometime back and I'm very pleased with the result. It may not be the super prettiest pattern but it is soooo very comfortable to wear. All I need now is to knit its sibling.

Also I've started work on the IK Icarus shawl in Knit Picks Shadow. I've had to restart this bad boy about 6 or 7 times. I don't know what the issue is but I manage to seriously screw up really simple lace. I do love the color though so I will continue on for however long it may take. I was so excited when I finished 20 rows and was able to put in a floss lifeline.

Lotus Blossom Top

Yay! It’s done. I’m all boob-tastic in my spiffy new Lotus Blossom Top. I’m pretty psyched about it too. Towards the end I really had some doubts about how it was turning out. I kept trying it on with the thought "I can fix this later if I have to". Blocking helped enormously.

Yarn: Knitpicks Merino Style in “Frost” on size 7 and 8 needles.

Modifications: I didn’t switch needle sizes until the decreases and I added a row of YO, K2Tog for the ribbon to go through. Otherwise, I followed the pattern to the letter. I also tried steam blocking this time instead of my usual wet blocking odyssey.
