hey check me out

I made myself a kickass beret, with Mmmmmmalabrigo yarn in the Lettuce colorway.

so soft and comfy, I'm on the verge of looking cool.

OK enough knitting for me, it's on to gifts for others for Xmas!

Just knittin' away

I finally finished the back of my Inverness sweater. It's really helped that I'm only keeping this project only in the living room, so I can't get distracted.

pretty purple! so far, despite how long it's taking, I am enjoying knitting for me. I used to make sweaters all the time & I forgot how much fun (albeit slow) it is.

I also started on some random sox, mostly because we were going to see Wolverine at the movies a couple of weeks ago, and I needed a project for in the theater. I'm sooooo tired of random dishcloths, so I grabbed this Patons Kroy Sock that I'd picked up on clearance.

I'm really hoping sock #2 looks as good. I bought my 2 balls on separate occasions-- I had thought I would do a small pair with just one ball, and changed my mind when I found it clearanced-- so I have a legit concern. Just as well I didn't go for the one-ball pair, because the yardage wouldn't have allowed for even a pair of anklets.

They're working up quickly and looks good, though you probably can't tell from the picture because it's blurry. I blame the camera for this one!

still alive, after all! doing doilies like a grandma, yo! (this one's actually done, i've got to block it, if i can find enough pins.)

things going semi-swimmingly at work; vurry bizzy, but everyone is. i'm doing extra work, which may or may not work against me come eval/raise time. since i'm not getting as much regular work done, i look worse than everyone statistically, but i'm also doing a vital function that if i DIDN'T do, the place would fall apart. i'm prepared to defend myself!

kids are great, and i'm crocheting my ass off. i'm hanging out with some peeps from work and they're all croceters, so i'm concentrating on that for now. i've almost got a blanket for afghans for afghans done. i'd post pix of my progress but my camera is ded, und we've got no batteriez in the house. suxxors
