Vacation Knitting

Back again, from yet another brief vacation, but as did not take the camera, have no lake photos. "Tic Toc" (one of our 3 cats), stayed behind and I am sure missed us a lot. Worked mostly on my charity knitting and of course -NO Photos at least any of the charity knitting...as of yet....However...

now am finished with Socks #3 (the third pair I have made), Knit with a gorgeous yarn with silver sparkles throughout. If anyone wants to know the maker, I will check it and list it later on. these are knitted cuff to toe. Very comfy.............





My fourth pair of socks is still on needles as can be seen in photo. also top down. this pattern and yarn is from HELLO YARN....the color is actually almost edible.......so yummy............

there is a picot edge. not easy at least for me...for newbies it is a bit tricky. I put them on at this point for quick photo. and now I am at the wrapped short row heel part. I have never done the wrapped stitch. not sure if I can figure this one out, found an online tutorial. but anyone that has done it successfully, feel free to send me any help suggestions.


Fall is coming at least in the store window fronts and occasional cool nights...so have to start knitting fall things again....here is my knitted pumpkin pin with needle felted crow and felted stem & leaf. Crow has wire legs and pumpkin has wire vine, plus bead on crows eye. Has a pin back.
