What's New Cock-A-Do!

I started my own Snow Flurries Blanket. Some of my mates think I'm crazy, but it is a fun pattern.

Snowy Blanket


At this stage many are confusing it for a hat. And really it could be, to do so I would just stop increasing. While I was knitting the first one for my cousin, I thought it would be cute to make a matching sweater/hat set.

I also swatched up the border...it's a bit insane because at the point where I cast off--I have about 700 stitches that I then increase by 4 times. But i don't think the cast off will be as brutal since so far i am not planning on a marathon cast off session like last time. Grin.

Snow Blanket with a picot swatch


The yarn I am using for the edging doesn't actually have any green in it, but I think the colors are just cute and will make a precious blanket. Who for, well... Idon't want to go there right now.

I am nearly to the heel on my sock...

HP Sock progress


For a while I was unsure if I liked how the design was coming. Still not sure, it might grow on me, but I am more unwilling to frog back to were I started the increases.

The gusset increases are inspired by Car Bordhi's sock-itecture....where the increase on on the top of the foot. In the increase section that will become the leg of the foot, I decided to center the ribbing on the purl instead of the knit...just to mix things up a bit. I might do another version after I finish this socks.

I had to frog my newest Super Secret project, it looks beautiful, but was coming out too big. Redux!

Of Clues and Themes

I am nearly done with clue # 3 of the Mystery Stole. I am surprised how fast I am knitting up this stole--KAL definitely help me keep interest--that and clue releases. MS3 has also eased my post Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trama....it's given me something to look forward to.

Today Melanie released clue #5 (yes I am behind) and the Theme, Swan Lake! (Highlight if you want to know.) I thought it might be that from the edging, swan wings from B. Walker's Second Treasury, but I wasn't sure. It came up so often I thought it was too obvious. I really like clue 5 and I am planning on completing as Melanie wrote it (I know a first for me).
