Cupcake Hat

With a side of Spidey :) Obviously made for someone with a much smaller head, but he was a good sport about trying it on.

WIP - Wild Stripes Blanket

Wild Stripes blanket - 1/3 done
Originally uploaded by aimeeknits.

I'm 1/3 of the way done with this. I think my guage is a little off so it's going to be a little bigger than the pattern specs, but I should be able to work around it.

Socks are done!

I think I'll do a few more rows between the rib and the heel next time, but I love them!!

Pattern: Alison's Ankle Socks

Half a pair done!

I finished one sock on Saturday and started a 2nd. I'm already looking at my stash wondering what I can make socks from next :)

And the sock goes on!

I finally figured out my error and now have a half finished sock! The bad news is that I don't think it'll fit me since I used smaller needles, but we'll see how it turns out. Kenna may end up with a new pair of cute socks :)

Long time no knit...

I was working on Cozy, but have been distracted with everything related to moving. I found a cool sock pattern, so ordered new needles and dug out some fun sock yarn. I have started this sock no less than 3 times now (plus another 3 partial do-overs) and am starting to get frustrated. Somehow I'm ending up with an uneven amount of stitches and the heel ends up looking off. I'm going to try once more and if I don't get it right, I'm going to put the project away for a few days before trying again.

I've got a colorful selection of KnitPicks merino on the way to make the Wild Stripes Baby Blanket for a friend who is due in a few months. Can't wait to get started on it!
