Knitting Progress

I finally was able to get pictures of my knitting projects on our computer thanks to my mom letting me borrow her camera last week. On my first blog post I mentioned that I had finished Kitchen Sink. Here are couple of pictures of the project in progress.

Now finished and well used. You can see the needle of another project sticking out of the mesh.

Russ loves blankets and has asked me to knit him one. So here is it in progress.

This has been a fun project. I pretty much did my own pattern, a couple inches of garter stitch then switched to seed stitch with a garter stitch boarder. I was knitting it off 3 cones, but it was really getting annoying so I finally balled the yarn.

It has been temporally put aside because I realized at I was finally was ready to do the bust shaping on my tank top that I have been working on since April. It has been fun learning how to do short row shaping. This project has had a lot of firsts for me — knitting in the round, short row shaping, using stitch markers and large article of clothing for me to wear. I have been carrying this around with me everywhere. I even had it with me at ACLS today and did get a couple of more rows done. I know a tank top in October in Michigan, but as a friend has pointed out it is a great layering piece, just to figure out what to wear over it.

The stitch markers I am using now were given to me by Carolynn , much nicer than the ones I was using. I want to learn how to make some, so I can give them away as gifts especially to my mother-in-law who has also been bitten by the knitting bug. She prefers to just knit, where I like to knit and crochet and have a crochet project I have been working on off and on for 8 years to finish — hum I wonder where it is? A project I should also finish this winter.
