Lots of FO's and couple WIP's(PIC HEAVY)
Hello my friends! I haven't posted any FOs in a while so I thought I would update you. Last month I started doing socks, real socks! Here is my very first pair. It's Patons Classic Wool with size 5 needles.


Okay, and here's my second pair that I finished up a few days ago. It's Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I used size 3 needles.


This is one of my WIPs. It's just a basic sock pattern. I love this yarn! I have some in a bluish purplish too. Used with size 2s.


I had a lot of random pieces of Peaches & Cream and Sugar & Cream so I made a few simple dish/wash cloths.


I love making these flower washcloths! I made like 5 in a row and gave most of them away. Sugar & Cream. Peaches & Cream.



My first crochet project. A potholder! Sugar & Cream.


Here is a beanie that I made a while ago. Don't know if I ever got around to posting it. Can't think off the top of my head what yarn it is. Universal Yarns...I know that much.


Cottage socks! I love them. They sat around unfinished for a long time but I just finished them around holiday time. They are so warm and comfy! Lion Brand Thick N Quick, size 13 DPNs.


I loved making this turkish string bag. Sugar & Cream on size 13 circular 16".


I made this scarf for me. Very soft, made with Lion Brand Thick & Quick. But I'll tell ya...I don't think I want to use this yarn anymore.


Okay, I promise this is the last picture. This is a WIP, obviously. I am knitting those Mary Jane slippers using Classic Elite Flash.


Whew. LOL. I'm officially addicted to knitting. I have knit all these up in the last two months. I am unemployed(looking for work) and don't have much to do. Lemme know what ya think!

Wow! I love seeing all of your projects!! Your socks look great! So, were they easy after getting the hang of it? I just bought a sock book:



I can't wait to finish my current projects and go sock yarn shopping!

You are obviously a gal who likes bright colors! Everything turned out so well! The colors make the projects that much more fun too! GREAT job!

Wanda- Thanks! Yes socks are easy once you do your first pair. It takes a couple pair to really know the steps, at least for me it did. Good luck with your first pair! Theres lots of people here to answer questions.
Auburn- Thanks, too! I do love bright colors and I'm not afraid to wear them.
