Yar! Ye Hath Been Owned!
Okay...so it was funny and has nothing to do with knitting or this post. hush. Actually, go check out my other blog and enjoy the random clip.
Anyway, on to the knitting!! I've added another backdated post, still one more that's waiting on pictures. However, I have tons of long awaited photos for you!
I've got the Mancala Mia all done now. There's a shot of just the board, because it came out sooo nicely. I love how the colors look together all fulled. The complete picture came out beautiful too. See the bag I made to hold the little beads/stones? It's basically just a hat that I added eyelets to and strung a crocheted chain through. I feel like a crazy person though, I went through the bag of multi-colored stones that I bought, and picked out all of the green and white ones for the game. Since they are the best matching colors.
Here is the detail of the pattern on my mom's sock. That's one full repeat of the cable pattern, and two of the lace. As of right now I've actually got two and a quarter repeats of the cable done, I'm aiming for three total before I start the cuff. That should add up to about 6 inches on the leg (4.5 of pattern, 1.5 of ribbing). At the rate I'm going I should actually make my deadline of December 9th!
Which, by the way, is my birthday. *wink wink* My MIL gave me $50 for yarn money!! YESSS! I'm trying to figure what to do with it...buy some yarn for Justin's gansey? Or more for my raglan? *gulp* Should I use it to buy Christmas presents? You know, for other yarnies. lol
I should totally be sleeping. Maybe I'll be able to update again tomorrow.
