Just in time!

I finally finished my September socks. Just in time too, with one day to spare. I am so excited as this is my first time participating in a KAL. The socks were pretty challenging but I managed to get them done and I don't think they look too bad. I am going to give them to one of my knitting co-workers for her birthday. I hope she likes them. She hasn't started knitting socks yet, but maybe after she sees these socks she will change her mind.

Still knitting

I am still knitting sock number 2. Hopefully I will be able to finish it before the end of the month. I am just finishing the heel flap. Then just the gusset and foot to go!

One down, One to go!

I finished one sock! YAY!!!I am now working on the second sock. I am still on the fair isle part, with two more repeats of the chart to go. Hopefully, I will finish these socks and be able to post them this month. This is my first time at fair isle, so this part of the sock goes pretty slow for me. Gotta go! It's lunchtime and I have alot of knitting to do!

I finally received all my supplies, yarn from Knitpicks and needles from ebay! I started the September socks on Saturday night. I finished the fair isle (which wasn't as bad as I expected), the heel flap is completed and now I am onto the gusset. I am hoping to finish these socks by the end of the month to post onto the Sockamania website. I think I can make it, if I keep focused. I will post my socks as soon as they are completed. I am so excited. This is my first time joining a KAL and I can't wait to post my socks. Everyone else who has finished their socks has posted and their socks are so nice.

Still waiting!

Well, I received my needles, but I am still waiting for my yarn! I can't wait to get started on my September socks. In the meantime, I am working on a square from the Great American Afghan. It's the sweater block and is adorable. I already finished the back part of this square, and now I am working on the little sweater. I have to finish it soon because my new yarn is coming. This will be my 8th completed square. Almost half way done! YAY

More Yarn!

I just ordered sock yarn and some yarn for a sweater for my mom. I also had to get double pointed needles, so I won some of those from ebay. Now, I just have to wait to receive all my purchases so I can get started. As soon as I receive all my new stuff, I am going to get started on this months socks.

I am currently in between projects. I am working on the Great American Aran Afghan, and I just finished my 7th square. It is really coming much better than I expected. I started this afghan because I thought it would teach me alot, and it certainly has done that so far. I do one square in between other projects. I also finished a sweater from a pattern I bought from Knitpicks. It is a really pretty shade of periwinkle, and I made it with their Crayon yarn. It is so soft and feels wonderful on. I can't wait until the cooler weather when I can start wearing it. Being new to knitting, I don't have a big stash to just begin another project, so until I can get to my LYS, I am going to have to wait to begin September's socks from my KAL. I am trying to decide which two colors to buy for the fair isle. I can't wait to begin. Hopefully, I can get to the store soon!

This is my first try at blogging! I am so excited. I just joined a sock KAL and received the pattern for the first month. I can't wait to get the yarn and get started.
