Fannie Pie: New things....

New things....

While I obviously haven't been blogging, I have been knitting! Since I last posted ( nearly 3 months ago...oops!) I have ....



Finished two pairs of Austerman Step socks...






Yes, that second photo is sideways.. and no those aren't finished in the photo, but they are finished and I don't want to go track them down to take a photo. You all know what finished socks look like... just like the photo above, only different colorway of my favorite sock yarn, Austerman step. I like the way it smooths my bamboo needles as well as how if feels while you knit it.


I have also finished a couple scarves...

This is a keyhole scarf in some supersoft alpaca and a mohair blend with something sparkly in it. Obviously I didn't keep the ball bands... this has already been gifted.
This one is a seed stitch scarf in Cashmerino superchunky. Soft simple and put away for gifting later.


I've also started two sweaters....



This is my 'Must Have Cardigan' - two sleeves and half the back are done. It's getting too hot to have this on my lap and even though the pattern is very easily memorized, you have to do stuff... like cables, so I started this.





This is a top down raglan short sleeved cardigan in cashmerino aran in tangerine.... it's the perfect compliment to a more complicated, cabled, wool project. It's so quick and easy that I hope to finish this soon so I can wear it. Spring is here and although the weather is lovely, I often want a soft sweater, so this should come in handy, provided it fits!

I'm off today so the knitting continues as I tidy my house and enjoy the day. I'll make an effort to post more often than every three months.. !

All of your projects are beautiful. We all missed you at Brookside last Tuesday.

DANG, now I can't justify not posting on my blog by saying well at least I've posted more recently than Fannie Pie.

Can't wait to see the orange sweater in person!
