Lots of FO's and couple WIP's(PIC HEAVY)

[COLOR=“DarkOrchid”]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! :wink: [/COLOR]

those are all great!! i especially like the bags!!

i can’t believe that was your first pair of sox. i want to try some very much - haven’t had time and dpns scare me a little. but i’m going to try this weekend after seeing yours.
the rest of your pics are great too

luv- If I can do it, you can do it! I learned from my DBFs mother but I read Silvers sock tek and it can definitely help you out.

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!

[COLOR=“black”][COLOR=“DarkOrchid”]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. [/COLOR][/COLOR]

Wow, you’ve been busy :slight_smile: They look great! I like that bag, i’ve been looking for a similar pattern, something I can wad up and cram in my purse and pull out when I need it.

I’d love the pattern for that bag too! Great idea.

Your projects look wonderful. Keep up the good work!

Thanks. Here’s the link to the Turkish String Bag pattern if anyone is interested. http://tiajudy.com/stringbag.htm

I love EVERYTHING! Pretty cool, being addicted to knitting, eh?!
I especially love your bag and those slippers are gonna be so cute.

Sounds like a busy knitter to me! Good job! Now, if we could just get paid for knitting…
