Stuff I'm Working on

I'm making these Jaywalkers from MagKnits as a x-mas gift. I'm using size 0 needles and Regina sock yarn, but you can see that. I really like this pattern for this yarn.
Here is another x-mas gift. They are Go With The Flow Socks from the summer 05 IK. I'm using size 0 needles and you can see what kind of yarn I'm using. I wanted to get these pictures up before FYFS. I think I'm going to get all my gifts done on time, I have one more pair of socks I have to cast on for, but I'm going to wait till I get at least one pair done first. I also would like to spin some sock yarn for my sister for x-mas. I haven't touched my wheel in about a week and I miss her....must finish some of this knitting first. Oh I do have to say this I'm so glad that I have 2 pairs of all my smaller sock needles. Posted by Picasa

More things I'm working on

This is a Whitewater Wristwarmers from Magknits, I should have this one done tonight. I'm using the Debbie Bliss Pure Silk my sister got me for my birthday this year and size 1 needles. Oh my I just love this pattern, I so can't wait till they are done!
This is a Hellees Sleeping Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks. (love this book). These are a x-mas gift and I like this pattern because i'm not sure of her size and it's a tube sock. I'm using Socks That Rocks in Rolling Stone and size 2 needles. Posted by Picasa

Felted scarf and pot

These were both made from my hand spun yarn and a gift for someone, can't say who!! I found that these are a great way to use up bits of the first yarn you have ever spun cause felting hides everything. I also love that the alpaca and mohair turns furish.
Don't forget to check out my etsy store MerlinTheCatYarns There are some new sock yarns :) Posted by Picasa
