Gift for my doula

We would never, ever give birth without our trusty doula at our side. We love her and have had two beautiful birth experiences with her assistance. Here is the scarf I finally finished for her.

I’m a Sock Machine

Okay, not really a machine as nothing here is really that impressive, but nonetheless I have WIP’s and FO’s to report.

I put this all in on Ravelry this morning too. I’m loving that site but I have to say that the process of uploading my pics, putting them on Flickr, adding to Ravely and then my blog post is time consuming!

First, we have not a sock but rather a finished scarf:
terra scarf

Simple lace pattern of K2 tog and YO, then knit the even rows.
Yarn is Terra from the Fibre Company, alpaca merino and silk….nice! Took one skein only.

On to the socks.

First up, the Mystery Socks:

Mystery socks

Why a mystery? I won this yarn at The Weaving Inn but she wasn’t sure what it was. Bummer as I love this yarn. These will make nice warm socks this winter as they are quite thick. See the ear on the toe? I still get them now and again and can’t figure out why. Tricks, please??

Next up, my Spunkly Eclectic sock yarn of the month in Strawberry Fields. (Great club, by the way).

On to WIP’s. The first Copycat sock is done:

This is the sock I’m copying from a pair of store bought socks my SIL was wearing last Thanksgiving. I’m using Sandy’s Palette.

Next, I started Embossed Leaves Socks from Interweave Winter 2005, in Lotus Toes Sport by Zen String.

Lastly, some plain old anklets in Regia Bamboo:

Oh, and I finished a bib too!

This went to a friend. Okay, actually it went to her baby. The weird squiggle? Hiding a weird loop that happened on the edge of the neck. I wanted to do more squiggles but finished this a half hour before the shower, so no such luck.

More WIP

I’m so annoyed that I have no batteries. We always have batteries in this house and I can’t find any right now. I will be sure to pick up some this weekend so I can finally show you photos of Jennifer’s awesome Fiber Flix swap package. I am loving it and having a hard time not casting on and adding to the 4 pairs of socks I have on the needles. Thank you so, so much Jennifer for all the cool stuff! I promise I will show it off to everyone soon!

I also sent off six packages today. Jennifer’s for Fiber Flix, the Summer Dishcloth Swap, SP10, squares for Warming Grace, and more prizes from the Knitter’s Coffee Swap.

In the meantime, I’ve got another surprise WIP for you. It’s the Silk Lace Scarf from the Stitch and Bitch page a day calendar in Lisa Souza silk. You see, I have actually been knitting!

This will be a gift for the doula who attended both boy’s births. (say that five times fast). I’m halfway done.

Other excitement:

I got my Ravelry invite. Because I need more to do. (That place is awesome. It is also a major time sucker. That’s why my Bloglines says I have 536,896 updates to read.)

In one week we will be at Estes!
