FO's 2006

This is a cotton blanket that missbedora and I made out of Knitpicks "Shine" for our friend Alison. It has a backing of cotton fabric to keep and the ends tucked in and make it look neat. We are hoping this turns into "blankie"! September 2006

A pair of Trekking socks for myself. I showed the heel here because this was the very first pair I ever made with a short row heel that did not have a hole. The trick? Pick up one extra stitch when you are knitting the first full round after the heel, and then k2tog on the next round at that point. September 2006

A pair of toe up, short row heel socks for myself in Lornas Laces (which was a gift from missbedora) August 2006

This is a mini tuxedo and wedding dress that I knit for my friends (and then another set for my cousin) that I turned into magnets for their fridge. I am planning on writting up the pattern for this some day soon. June 2006

This is a needle roll that I made for my Mom for mother's day. For Christmas last year I got us both crochet lessons, as that is something my mom has wanted to learn how to do for a while. So, I thought she needed a place to hold all of her needles! May 2006

Here are the first ever pair of socks that I made for TJ. They are out of Trekking XXL, and they were the first pair of toe up socks I had ever made. I will definitely be making all my socks this way in the future (short row toe with provisional cast on, short row wrap heel). March 2006.

This is a shot of the front piece of another Iris that I made for my sister. You can see what the original looked like here. This one was my sister's Christmas gift, and was made out of a nice pale purple Rowan Calmer.

This is another drop stitch cardigan from the Fall 2005 Interweave, again made out of Malabrigo. This one was a gift for my Mom's birthday. More pictures here.

This is the drop stitch cardigan from the Fall 2005 Interweave. I used Malabrigo in Sealing Wax for this one, and it was a gift for missbedora's birthday. You can see the packaging that I used for this gift here.

This is my long awaited Princess De sweater that I have been working on for literally years. It is my own design, and I will be making the pattern available soon. You can see more pictures of it here.

Over Christmas 2005 I worked on a cabled hat, a mistake rib scarf, and some plain two needle mittens out of Malabrigo, my favourite yarn. I finished these in January 2006

This is an i-Pod cozy that I made with a little help from TJ (his first, and only, knitting). I used some leftover sock yarn and the magic loop method to finish this off in January 2006 .
