I am a total Knitting Knerd

Last night I found out that my red hiking socks are going to be featured on the informational page on Ravelry of the pattern that I used to knit them. I am quite tickled. The pattern name is Hiking Socks if you are so inclined to have a peek.

Here are some pictures of one of my latest finished objects. I was no so to quick to display it because I did not make the legs the same length. I was holding the legs wonky when I was knitting the second one and did not realize that one was shorter than the other. It took me awhile to debate the relative merits of frogging vs. leaving them be. I left them be because I used a sewn bind off which would have been a (insert bad word here) to undo. Blocking did not really help much either so Harry is just going to have to deal. These are the longies that are going to have a matching sweater if I can just stop starting new projects and finish already.


I was going to duplicate stitch a heart on the bum but since I did not actually really know how to do that it turned out horrible. I am now a lot more confident of my skilz having looked up several tutorials.


Harry chillin on my bed. Note that I forgot to weave in the ends of the cuff.

A full shot. It was hard to get Harry to stand still long enough to get this picture.

Gotta have a thumb break.

Your knitting skills are through the roof! I am so glad you took the plunge! Isn't it fun!?!? I feel like there are not hours in a day to be able to knit all the things I would like too!

Cute!
The Very Busy Spider. Good book.
And duplicate stitch is pretty easy, I've made three sweaters that way. :)

Those pants are so so great. I need to start knitting again. I've been trying to finish the same sweater for two years!

Oh, I love those woolies! So cute! I'm jealous of your skills.

I cannot knit to save my life. Literally, if there were a death v. knitting contest, death would win, hands down.
