I did finish the first "Monkey" sock, using Mountain Colors "Juniper" I love the greens that are in this colorway. Mountain Colors is so soft to the touch. It feels so good while knitting up. This was my first experience using it. I know I will use this yarn again.
Also, OTN's is the Noro Kureyon Girls Jacket that I am knitting for my 20 month old grand-daughter Chloe. I saw this sweater on display at my LYS and fell in love with it. It is an old Noro pattern that is no longer in print. It is also my first attempt at Intarsia.
I am using Noro Kureyon #'s 40 & 102
The following photo is what it is supposed to look like. Photo taken at LYS.
I am also working on "Prosperous Plum Tank" by Joanna Cohen. As you can see it's not purple/plum. I am using Cascade Sierra #13 (Jade). In my opinion, it looks more Teal than Jade.a free online pattern
Last but not least, there are "Lombard Street" Socks from Magknits September 2006 issue. I'm using Lorna's Lace.
To change the subject before I finish up here today, I was sad to see the Seahawks lose the game against the Chicago Bears. It was a good game and close. The Seahawks gave us a wild roller coaster season, but it was exciting. I will be waiting for next season and the road to the SuperBowl 2008. In the meantime, I will be cheering for the New Orleans Saints.
Until next time, knit on !
