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

  kellen's sock, a baby hat, and two blobs.
my needles have been hot lately!
as promised, here's a picture of kellen's finished sock

fogive the shoddy picture, but he's crocheting on a deadline and i didn't want to make him get up to find better lighting. to the right is the few rounds of ribbing i have done on sock 2.

so, while i was bored with the sock, i whipped up a baby hat. i don't have a recipient in mind, although my mom has another expecting coworker, so if it's a girl, she'll get it.
pattern:baby hat from One Skein by leigh radford
yarn: sugar-n-cream in...uh, pink?

finally, yarn snobs sheild your eyes....

these amorphous blobs are the pre-felted incarnation of some monster slippers for a certain toddler's birthday. i based them off the monster slippers in Stitch-n-Bitch Nation, but used a pattern for toddler's slippers, with a closed heel.

and i am not going to apologize for my use of fun fur. yes, it's ridiculous, and is hardly worth calling yarn, but it does serve it's purpose. if your rowan fondling hands can't handle it, tough! ...but no hard feelings, right?
Love the baby hat! I keep thinking about making one. You just sealed the deal--that will be my next project from One Skein. :)
Great sock! I've added you to Count Your Socks - thanks for joining us!
Nice socks. Glad to see you haven't succumbed to the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome
Yay for the monster slippers! I made some in green and blue for my flatmate once.
