On the Needles and Some Booty!

Here's what came in the mail the other day for the Yarn Pirate Booty Club.....Kneeshighs are the plan. I finished my first Retro Redux Shrug from Lace Style the other day. I'm waiting for someone to be around to take a photo of the finished product. In the meantime, last night I casted on another one in black! It's a quick knit. Easy lace and the end product is cute!!
I planned on knitting the Summertime Tunic for Interweave Knits Summer 2007. But it's so boring! It's just dragging on and on. I have a feeling this will never get finished. Using Cotton Ease.
And here's a Monkey. My first Monkey. Using Cherry Tree Hill in Foxy Lady. I used Size 2 circs on the cuff and will use Size 1 for the foot.
Finally, my first Rockin' Sock Club June 2007. I used the called for pattern on the cuff in size 1 circs. The foot is plain old stockinette! Now I'm casting on the 2nd one. I hope to actually finish before the next round of club yarn comes my way. This was the first sock pattern I used from them. Yea for me!

Ampersand Socks and Top Down Baby Sweater

First pair of socks!! Since then I have knitted one Jaywalker using STR Silkie Walking on the Wild Tide and basic stockinette socks using Online Summer Socke. I will post the Online sock in the next couple of days. They are finished just no picture yet!! Now for the Ampersand sock, this was such an easy pattern to use for the first sock. I know I'll use it again but next time with size 2 circs for a tighter fit.

I'm slow to post but here's some photos of the new sock yarn from the Socks that Rock Club. The colors a hot orange, fuschia, pink and peach. I'm not sure if I'm going to use the pattern that was sent because it's a cable pattern and that is so time consuming for me. Another member used the Monkey pattern and it looked really good so that's a good possibility for me.
