Foot Candy?

I meant to post eye candy pictures for this Friday afternoon, but I realized that I hadn't yet posted the pictues of my new socks!

These are garter stitch rib socks from Sensational Knitted Socks knit on 2 size 2 circs. The yarn is some of that fancy jojoba and aloe infused yarn that's supposed to soften up your feet for up to 40 washes! (wierd, huh?) Bryant bought the yarn for me on one of his business trips to Chicago earlier this month. Yay new socks! They really do feel amazing on my feet!

I bring you...

Bad and blurry pictures! Of my Heeless Sleeping Socks !

This pattern is from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks and this particular pair are now flying their way across the country. Koigu KPPM, knit on size 2 DPNs. They are a belated birthday present for my grandma (who is also a knitter) and I hope she likes them!
They took freakin' forever to knit!

A Quick Knit

Another FO from LMKG. I cast on for this sweater on Saturday afternoon and cast off Sunday evening. I weaved in ends, did a little stitch grafting and added bead/buttons yesterday and it's finished!

This is knit from Jaeger Tweed DK (I'll get the exact yarn info and re-post later) on 24in Addi circs and Brittany DPNs for the sleeves. I love the seed stitch edges the most and the bead buttons which I just happened to have in my other stash. The sweater is knit entirely in the round from the bottom-up with the sleeves knit seperately and then joined at the bottom of the arm-hole. The entire sweater is then joined together on one circular needle. While I know this is a very common technique for raglan sweaters, it's the first time I've tried it for myself and I really enjoyed the construction and how quickly it came together. I would definitely recomend this knit to anyone who is knitting for a wee-bebe and short on time.

This sweater is for my DH's co-worker. It will be a girl...(it?? I'm such a dork) and born sometime next month. B is very close to this guy and so he "commissioned: me to knit this sweater. He picked out the pattern, yarn and buttons and will deliver it to the soon-to-be-new-dad-to-be on Monday.
