Finally, WIP pictures!

Life has been so crazy. I know I've been busy, but for the life of me I can't remember what I've done... Picture heavy post, so you've been warned!

First up here, my sock! I'm very proud of my inch and a half of ribbing there. The yarn is Trampoline Stretch and my needles are sz 5 Clover bamboo. I love those Clover bamboo needles. I started this Thursday night at the Parrot Stitch.

That long strip of purple is the first strip of my knitted lapghan that I'm making. 7 shades of purple! Lots of baby yarn, and the fuzzy one is from N.Y. Yarns, the Cloud line. It is so unbelievably soft, like a cloud actually. Imagine that...

And this little thing is my square for the Hurricane Katrina quilt. It's the Saints fleur de lis. Living in Louisiana myself I just had to stitch it. The chart was in my Pattern A Day calendar that I got for Christmas. Done with plain ole DMC, a blend of 3820 and 725.


I also just realized that I never posted my latest blob of Alternative Reality. It's still very much a blob, and I haven't had it out since I got back from my Mimi's house. I think the green patch is turning into moss. This is the lower left hand corner.
