My WIP's

Entrelac Socks. Well...... I'm having mixed feelings about this sock. I'm not happy with some things, but these are all things I can fix after finishing the sock. (see the holes by the heel? THOSE) and please ignore how funky my foot looks in the pic, it's squished at a funny angle trying to show off the sock and get a decent pic. I am starting my first leg increase tier. I am starting it early for a few reasons. The main ones being I'm short and have fat legs. Another is that it's a bit difficult getting my heel into the sock as it doesn't stretch much, and I'm afraid if I wait longer to start my increases, it'll become imposable to get my heel in there. It makes sense to me.

Garterlac Baby blanket. I am 5 side triangles into it. I am thinking of stopping after 6, but seeing as I have time and an employee discount both on my side, I might just go get more yarn and do 8 (8 is how many base triangles I have). I don't know yet, I'm going to play it by ear and see how long it takes me to get sick of this blanket. It hasn't happened yet. This blanket idea was copied from Twinsanity, who got her inspiration from Criminy Jickets Garterlac Dishcloth.

This is going to be a birthday gift for my almost 2 yr old Niece, Morgan. It's a basic top down raglan. I am not using a pattern, I've done so many of these I could knit them in my sleep. I am using Patons Grace yarn on size 6 needles so It will be nice and light & airy for spring. I'm using black for all the ribbing the the Azure color for the body. I still need to buy buttons for it. I cast on for this sweater a week ago yesterday, and I have until Sunday to finish it. Wish me luck :)
