Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  hot pink socks, noro mittens, oh my!
two FO's and half done sock today...

after so much grey with kellen's socks, i couldn't resist something colorful. i finished these in two afternoons, the weekend after i finished kellen's socks. they're done in noro kureyon #134, made out of one skein. i intended for them to be fraternal twins but i had no idea how different they'd be! i love them though. very warm and perfect for early spring.

these are the first socks i made for me. right after i got Knit Socks! i made the first one, and got all the way to the heel of the second before i lost interest and started k's socks. i finally finished them up thursday night. they're made of lamb's pride worsted, in lotus pink and a mystery ball of purple i had left over from the felted clogs i made at christmas (i think it *might* be amythyst). they're so thick, a little wonky, but warm.

finally, my current WIP, Knitty's Tiptoes, designed by my yarn hero, stephanie pearl-mcphee. they're a mother's day gift for my mom, who wears clogs a lot, and therefore can show off those tulips!
I love the idea of non-identical twin gloves! :) They came out great.
