Stuff I've been working on, invisible to the naked eye

Which is a way of saying I've been knitting, but not taking photos.

-Tubey! Is done and has been worn on several occasions this cold spring. I think I may add a little to the bottom though, and anyway I cast off kinda tight (always an issue for me). So, I'm wearing it, but should fix it. Tahki New Tweed in Sky, 10 balls. Pattern from Knitty.

-Fair Isle Pillow from last year's Interweave (Spring? Summer? the "Simply Marilyn" one). I'm really getting into the groove of fair isle. I feel like I could tackle that Knitpicks vest now if I wanted (I love the cardigan too, but, hello, it's sock yarn - I'd be eligible for AARP before it was finished). About half done, using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in rose, pink, light blue and dusty blue, to sort of match the rug in my living room.

-Simply Lovely Lace socks from the current Interweave. Wanted a relatively quick project, so started these last night. Taupe sportweight German yarn scored at the Knitsmiths yarn swap.

-Rosebud. I started this last fall, just picked it up again. Just passed the gathered section and am close to armholes. Using Dale Svale in a color that I now think will not suit me at all, but maybe I can do some darker embroidery around the neckline to compensate. Knitty pattern.

-the never ending crocheted baby blanket. I pulled this out of my stash box and worked on it a little. Too bad I forgot what size hook I had been using before. Had to rip out the rows I added before putting it away in disgust. At this point will be my daughter's high school graduation present. She's 2.

Next time maybe some photos and finished objects...

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern!
