Hey, Guess What?

I've been KNITTING!!! WOOHOO!!!!! It's about damn time I had the urge to knit. I missed it. I even started knitting a new pair of socks! I do have two FO's to share with you though.

Here is a little cabled cover for my netbook. I used Knitpicks Essential Kettle Dyed sock yarn in Bordeaux. Using the yarn held double and size 7 16” circs, I CO 90 stitches. (K2, P2, K4, P2) around. I did a cable twist every 7 rows in the K4 panel. When it was long enough to fit my netbook, I flipped it inside out and did a 3-needle BO to close one end.

And, here's a Chevron Scarf I knit. I used Schaefer Nichole sock yarn in the color 'grapes on the vine'. I'm in LOVE with the yarn, and will definitely be buying more soon.

I also have some pretty damn neat news to share with you. If you follow me on Twitter, Plurk or facebook, you already know this. But you remember a few months ago I posted about knitting a mystery project? well, actually there were 2, but here I'm talking about the first one. I was doing some sample knitting for Cookie A's next book. Knit.Sock.Love. is the book, and by the preview it looks AMAZING! It'll be available in February 2010. Oh, btw- the socks I knit for the book? yeah.....well..... The purple socks on the cover, I knit those!!!
