Finished Objects

Since I'm determined to keep track of what I knit this year, I will post photos when I finish something and also add it to my Flickr set of 2008 knitting. How's that for organization? Now if I could just make a schedule of what's next and stick to it.....The bags of projects are piling up around my knitting chair again.

Here are the fingerless mitts I made for a niece's birthday. I used Cascade 220 Superwash and a size 6 needle; Addi Turbos 32" cable for Magic Loop. I started them two-at-a-time but made a mistake in one so had to separate them, rip one back and then finish. The pattern is Cableback Gloves by A. Karen Alfke.

I also finished a pair of baby socks to send to afghans for Afghans. I used some leftover Regia tweed sock yarn and the Infant Socks pattern by Judy Ellis. These are quick and so cute! I did make both of these at the same time - I started with two circs, got mixed up with the cables, put them on Magic Loop (after separating them to do the heel turns) and finished successfully.

Nothing like learning all sorts of new techniques with one project.
