Photo Finish

The first of my secret knitting projects is done, but you have to be on Ravelry to see it (sorry!). My Ravelry name is CTJen if you want to check it out. I even had some yarn to spare–about a yard.

Talk about a photo finish! I’ve started the next secret project (photos next time) and am already almost finished. Which is great because, in anticipation of cooler weather (we’ll get that eventually, right?), I’ve been anxious to cast on a sweater for Isaac. It’ll be the same as the one I knitted for E back in March, only bigger. I plan on finishing that in the month of October because I may be too busy in November for knitting. Still no guesses as to what I’ll be doing?

Also, I forgot to post photos of my Pirate Club booty! Isn’t it pretty?

It’s the Merino/Tencel blend, so it’s all soft and squishy. I love the colors–very apropos for fall.

Finally, here’s the progress I’ve made on the Charade sock in the Yarn Pirate’s Rum Runner colorway. As you can see, it’s coming along nicely. :-)


A Minor Setback

I had to rip back a few inches of my secret project because I didn’t “short row down” enough stitches. I’m even more anxious about my yardage now. *grumble*


Secret Progress and Website Wednesday

Here’s the progress I’ve made on the secret project I started the other day. Any more guesses?

Finally, in honor of Website Wednesday, here’s a link from Nea. This guy builds Escher replications from Legos. Awesome.

PS–> another link: Holly is having a destashing contest. Leave her a comment (don’t forget to mention me) about a pattern you’ve knit multiple times and you could win a skein of Manos Cotton Stria and a lovely dpn case. Contest closes midnight, PDT, September 14.


Arrived By Post Today

Isn’t it lovely? I ordered the 9 mm for two reasons: first, it’s the size I needed for one of the secret projects I am working on and, second, it’s a size that does not come with the Knit Picks Options set. I do not yet own the KP Options set, but when I get it, I will have already extended it. That’s me, always thinkin‘!

While I was waiting for the needles to arrive in the mail, I cast on this:

another secret project. Can you guess what it is?
