Yarn Along -13 April 2011
For this week's Yarn Along, I finished Ella's Socktopus. What a fun knit! Though I was disappointed that it didn't actually use sock wool. It needs a yarn that knits about 18sts to 4 inch. I had to pick up the off-white and pink/purple stripe yarn. I have enough of the pink/purple to make Ella matching socks. I used the pink/white stripe from Ella's knee socks and the black/purple came from my February Lady Sweater. I did use a sock wool for a couple of socks, but had to double the wool. One leg is even wearing a leg warmer while another has a stocking and garter.
On my needles is another knitted dolly. This one is for Ella, so don't tell :) I'm working on her skirt now. Might get her finished tonight. Depends on how much time I spend doing the farm finances (bleh).
I'm reading a book from the library. It's Stitch n' Bitch Nation. I'm glad it's from the library because I'd be very disappointed if I had bought the book. It's got a few interesting items, but not much.
