Knitting at a game

Indian food later. The little one has made vast strides in his goalkeeping.
Working on sleeves.

Cat by firelight and finishing things

Hipstamatic is fun.

So, I'm working on finishing the black pullover. God, it's A pain in the a$$, but the fabric is so nice and there's almost something really satisfying about working something so fine in gauge. And it's almost the time of year to wear it.
I'm also nearly done with brown; think jury is out until I can try it on, but it feels nice.
Finally Kauni. I want to rip it out and redo it. The gauge is a hair off and I'm not happy with it. What about doing a sleeve to sleeve using simple fair isle patterns?

Been awhile again

Sorry. Went to lunch today - husbands birthday - and the place we ate had these;

Yes, gold wolves. Odd, but cool. I also thought the ceiling was cool;

Something else nice is Summer Storm - coming along nice and fast despite my being kind of a moron and having a really hard time with the pattern - binding off when I'm supposed to cast on, being thwarted by short rows (which I did finally figure out) - brings to mind a recent conversation about what kind knitter are you, do you read patterns all the way through before you start or not? Me? Not. By rights I should have finished this puppy days ago but for all the ripping out;

I think I should call this one UPS (what can brown do for you).
Oh, and I put nail guards on Indy - I was being festive but the little one thinks I'm being mean to the cat. Look at his feet;

Something new; and boring

The pattern is Summer Storm in Knitpicks Comfy bulky.

That's less than 24 hours of knitting.
Also, from one of our all time favorite BBQ joints:

Lightnin' is tasty.

One witchy sock done

Started on the second one today (I still like the color pooling on these, feet a bit less than the leg, but what can you expect with the gusset decreases):

Yes, Indy has recovered from the window install - he acted extra skittish all day. Then we watched Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and we were skittish. Yikes.
Here's a better color snap of these socks.

More new windows

Kitty hates new windows. Actually, he's probably indifferent to windows but hates noise and strangers.

And here's some blocking I did for a coworker; her scarf is also going into the silent auction next week.

When color pooling doesn't suck

Happy accident of needle size, gauge and pattern. Probably dye lot as well. Colors are much nicer, richer, in real life. This ball of Imagination seems to have little or no mohair, which is sad but it's pretty.

Pink socks

Title about says it all.

I'm not sure what to do next. I have some projects I should finish and already have plans for vest, but I kind want to do that bunny blanket ...
