Good Times

I am working on two projects right now, both of which may end up being frogged. I think this decision will be one that waits to the last minuet, though. I have turned the heel and finished the gusset on the child's first sock (finally). I'm not sure if I like the way it fits, but since it's still on the needles I can't really tell yet, so I'm going to wait until I finish the toe to decide. I have also cast on for Oblique, which I love. The problem is that I don't know if this sweater really fits in with my wardrobe and style. I tend to wear really plain sweaters. For now I think I am going to keep knitting the back before I decide, because so far it's fun to knit.

I finished the hat, but between needing someone to take pictures and needing new batteries for my camera - no pictures yet.
Also - mainly because I need a picture - this was frogged. It was my first toe up attempt, and I don't think I did it right - there were some major holes by the gusset. It is not fun to undo a sewn cast-off. There was a lot of cutting and cursing.

It's Lorna's Lace Baltic Sea, which is apparently my favorite color way. Any time I find variegated Lorna's that I like it's this color way. I think I am going to knit Thrifty Knitter's Woodlawn Shawl with it, though it may end up being plain jane socks. We'll see.

Great color on the sock. I'm sure it will be lovely in its next incarnation as well. And if you figure out the secret to toe-up socks let me know!

Oh, I love that Woodlawn Shawl! It would be so pretty out of the baltic sea.
