WIP photos


This is my attempt at knitting socks with a 12" circular needle. This one is an Addi Turbo (thanks again Sharon!). I'm really loving them - no pointy sticks all over the place and no long cords (magic loop) getting twisted up. I'm using Patons Stretch Socks in Bonbon Caramel. I think I'll call them my "Plain Jane Socks".

And this is the first "Mystery Special" on the Holiday Mystery Gift-Along.
We are up to Clue 4 out of 7 clues and I don't have a clue what it is! I'm using Kool-aid dyed Knitpicks Wool of the Andes. Any ideas of what this can be? Some are guessing that it's a thong LOL.

I bought a pair of these. haven't tried them yet. Do you use markers to keep your place?

Let me know how hard these socks are, okay? I keep looking at them.. I know, if I had a dollar for ever time I said that....

I have no idea. It's modular, and I CANNOT figure that stuff out without serious hand holding. You know those tests where they show a die and then ask which one of 4 options would BE that die if it were all folded up. ARGH!!!!

How's school?

Hey cool! I'm doing this mystery knit along too!! I just finished my day 5 and up until then I thought it was going to be [after folding] a knitted gift box, but now...???? I am stumped again!
