Some finished, some not

Okay, I've made a bit of progress on my wips. I've finally finished Emily's 2nd cable sock. The first one has been done for weeks but the 2nd one was slow going. I just didn't enjoy it at all but it was finally done last night and I actually knitted 10 rows too much before the toe and had to rip them out again.

I also finished the first of my new braided cable socks. This si a brand new design which I like and will definitely develop further. It's knitted in Patons Gold Wool Rich 4ply and may be a Christmas present. Not cast on 2nd sock yet. This one was a pleasure to knit and fairly quick.

Not done any sock knitting today and my only sock otn is my Lana Grossa sock which I've still got most of the cuff to do. It's only plain rib so a bit boring but I must get it done soon.

Decided to knit a felted bag today in some Cascade 220 Heathers I had lying around. It's got cables on the corners and will be slightly shaped with cabled shoulder strap and a flap. I've got some Kureyon which I may use for the flap and half of the strap but I'm not sure. Nearly finished the body and have only used just less than a skein so far. Got about 15 rows left to do. Cast on for this at 5.30 am. I couldn't sleep again and can't believe how much I've gotten done on this today especially considering I've not knitted much.

My last 2 balls of Big Wool for my Big Wool shopper came today so I can get that finished too. Will get this one done as soon as I've finished the Cascade bag.

Then I've got another eyelash scarf to knit for my neighbour. So I promise not to cast on for another sock until these 3 projects are done. Anyone believe me??? I don't!

And I've discovered anotehr forum. This one is for sock knitters. How fantastic is that. I've only been on for a few days but all the people there seem lovely and I'm loving it. Here's the link Sock Knitters Forum

I'm full of admiration for your creativity Anni. What strikes me about your work, looking at your photos, is the lovely rich colours and textures that you produce.
I'm going to take a look at the sock knitters forum too!

Thank you Knitbert. I do love colours and I'm not afraid to use them. LOL. I really just have fun with my knitting and when you're knitting relatively small projects it's fun to be creative and the yarns available now is just so gorgeous.

Love your new cabled sock pattern, Anni. And the colour of the new felted bag is just fab ... though I am a little biased (Friends called me the 'Purple Princess' for a whiley!)

LOL. I love purple too as you may have guessed. Just finished another felted bag called 'Simplicity' which is felting now. it's felted in a lovely purple shade from Cascade 220 The Heathers.
