Here Are the Pics to Prove It

Here we have Clessidra. I was quite intimidated by this pattern, and was a year with the yarn before I finally cast on. Now that I am working it, it really is an enjoyable pattern to work. I had to make some needle adjustments as my calves are a bit larger than the pattern calls for. Since I am not one to mess with changing stitch counts and such, I chose to simply start on a larger than called for needle, and will change in the middle of the calf decreases to the called for needle size.

Feel free to click on any of the photos to see better detail.

Next we have the Diamond Pullover, the jury is still out on this one. Not sure I won't end up sending it to the frog pond for a restart. There are several lessons learned thus far on this one. Particularly about using stitch markers for cables that are simply diagonal lines and have to continue being diagonal lines.

Here we have my Peaks and Valley Cuff cotton sock. I really like how these have turned out. Plus they are super easy and all in all a bit mindless. This is a very good thing in my world these days.

Last but not least is Rick's Blueberry Waffle Sock. Yes, it is on an extra large sock blocker, and No, you can't see the top of the sock blocker because he wanted said socks to be long.
So, see, I really have been knitting. I have also been organizing my yarn (boy do I have ALOT of socks to knit), and contemplating a baking business, and trying to plan the projects I want to do around the house - in hopes of having more home time.

I will try to stay a bit more on the ball, but no promises. In my world of strange shift hours, and odd bits of kid time, and so on, one never knows how much time I will take to update. Trust me though I do come and check you all out almost every day.

a baking business? What are you plotting? I meant to comment last time, but I forgot.
