Ornamant Exchange

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned a Ornament Exchange in Crafter's Haven? Well I can finally post pictures of the ornaments I knitted.

These are different sizes of holiday bells. The small blue on on the left is regular sock yarn, on a US #3/ The rest are different kinds of yarn, on needles from US #4 to I think #8. Each one was blocked and put onto a bottle to stretch to form. Yes it is mostly wool, so it will stretch.

... and now for exchange I received:

More sock yarn, and I do love the color. The dish cloths are the DW cloth, and an illusional design. (the camera angle brought out the illusion a lot better), and a Christmas stocking.

An interesting montage of stuff. Including:
  • Gummy Rat (Yes I will eat it)
  • Rubber chicken (LOL! Not sure if you all want the whole story)
  • Gauge Ruler
  • Spiderman Pen (Might be cute at work)
  • Markers (Always use more markers)
  • Frog Patch
  • Note pad.
  • Tea!
I'm looking forward to the next exchange, Stitch Markers

More Socks

After reviewing my blog, I realized I did not post pictures of finished socks.

These are my first sock blanks.

Here are my Coriolis Socks. It is not easy to see, but the coriolis. There is a line on each foot that starts near the top, goes through the heal, and wraps around the leg.

My Yarn Harlot Imitation

Here is my Imitation of the Yarn Harlot, while I was visiting Utah over the summer.

Another Blank

What does this mean? It is sock blank time again. The colors are Grape, Cherry, Black Cherry, Orange and Lemon Lime. No blue, because I could not find any blue colors. Did not use yellow or pink, or the other reds. Why are there so many reds? Cherry, Black Cherry, Strawberry, Fruit Punch and Tropical Punch.

Wet Blank

Dry blank. There are thinner stripes at the bottom, wider in the middle and vertical at top. The blank is in the bathroom drying. I will probably cast-on over the weekend.
