yarn along vier: an FO, a WIP, and a book :)

pattern: kai-mei by cookie a; yarn: meilenweit 100 cotton spirit by lana grossa

i finished these a few weeks ago, but haven’t had a chance to get a blog worthy picture, until this morning. the photography is thanks to dana:) he did an awesome job.

cujo showing his support 🙂

cujo wanted to be a part of it as well, as always:) i have a final to look forward to this friday, so there hasn’t been that much knitting…but i do have a WIP to show off…

today's wip

these are the arrowhead arm warmers by Veronik Avery, from Interweave Knits, Holiday Gifts 2008. yeah, i’ve been wanting to knit these since…november of 2008. better late than never right? also, the yarn i’m using is Valley Yarns Charlemont in the burgandy colorway, and it is very nice to work with. however, i did rip out about 2 1/2 inches once, and it wasn’t as nice to work with after one slight frogging…so i was reluctant to rip it out again for a third re-do. so i just decreased a little instead of re-casting on fewer stitches. i’ve finished 3 chart repeats, but i am contemplating making these a little longer, and adding a thumb…so for now, they are hold until i can make up my mind on how exactly i want to accomplish that. and finally a book Bossypants, by Tina Fey.

i haven’t started it yet, but i have a feeling that it is going to be Blerg!, i mean, very funny:) hop on over to small things to see what everyone else is working on and reading this wednesday:)

    Those are awesome socks! The color is perfect and the pattern woven in is so neat to look at. They’re busy socks, but not -too- busy! Very nice.

    Arm warmers are so fun to make. I’ve seen them everywhere lately but no cables in them. I think I will be working on a new pair for myself once I get my gift projects under control.

    Happy knitting and good luck with your final this week.

    Story of my life. Except then I usually tell myself the project won’t live up to my high hopes, and never get to it. So I’m glad they’re turning out awesome for you!

    How’s Bossypants? It’s on my summer reading list. Because, hello, Tina Fey. I love her.

    Those are Kai-Mei, right? They are gorgeous! One of the reasons I started knitting was those socks…still haven’t made them…still working on my other vanilla ones first…Cujo is adorable!
