SP11 Socks

I just finished one of the socks my SP 11 pal sent me.

I LOVE knitting socks. I don't know what I was so afraid of.

Here is a picture. I still need to finish the second one.

It shouldn't take to long. I only need to knit the foot and toe.

Thanks SP11 Pal...

ISE 5 Scarf

This is the scarf I'm making for my ISE5 Pal.

It's made with Frog Tree Brushed Suri in red. I got the yarn at my LYS, The Yarn Stash, in Burien WA

The pattern I'm using is Angel Pearls Beaded Scarf by Sivia Harding Knit designs. I got the pattern last spring on a Yarn Hop in Portland OR.

This is my first attempt with lace knitting. I love how it is turning out. I hope my Pal likes it.

My First Socks

I'm finally learning to knit socks. I'm taking a class at my LYS, The Yarn Stash, I'm learing the magic loop method. It's so easy. I don't know why it took me so long to learn. I have my first sock knitted up to the heel flap. I'm starting my second sock. I'll proably take my second class on Thursday.
I'm using wool ease and size 5 needles. I love my KP Options!!!
