FOs: inros & darkside cowl

pattern: inro

needle: sz. 5

i love me some cozy socks! mainly because they knit up so fast, hehe. i'm really happy with my newest knitting book. especially since i usually buy a knitting and book and never end up knitting anything from it! knitting socks east and west has alot of worsted weight patterns, so it's right up my alley.

i really cut it close with these socks though, look at how much yarn i had left over! i had just enough to kitchener the toe. talk about living on the edge. ;)

and also...

pattern: darkside cowl

yarn: vanna's choice (forgot the colorway)

needle: sz. 7

started: few months ago

finished: march 8, 2010

i was asked to make this cowl a few months ago, the recipient was very specific about the color they wanted and i could only find it in vanna's choice. usually i am not a big fan of arcylic yarn, but this wasn't so bad to knit with. it is actually kind of squishy soft! and you cannot beat machine washable. a tad bit squeaky when knit with, but i think it turned out pretty nicely! if i do say so myself.

on a very exciting note....i'm going to knitting group tonight! ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm so happy. i'm visiting nebraska for my birthday, a nice little getaway from the craziness of the city/work. it was a bit of a time getting here, my flight was almost canceled due to a problem with the plane and after waiting around for a 3 hour delay they finally said we could board! at that very moment, the power went out at the airport. what the?! how is that even possible? we eventually got on the plane and hightailed it out of nyc. phew! i'm really excited to see all my knitting gals, love them.

Miss you already! It was great seeing you and I'm totally jealous that you finished a pair of socks in 3 days. I've been working on the same stinking project since December! I'm surprised I didn't forget how to knit. Come back soon.
