I'll begin with the saddest one...
Frequent readers will remember my l-o-n-g story-telling of making the socks for my Sockapaloooza pal (the story is here). Here's a photo of what I mailed out:
Since my pal lives overseas, I mailed them out the end of April. Well, it's now eight weeks since I mailed them and my pal has not received them... I think I have to accept the fact that the package I mailed has disappeared... Seriously, I want to cry when I think about it.
So my sock sister asked me if I would be willing to be my own sock savior (one who knits for the sockapalooozers who didn't receive socks) and I said that I would... Unfortunately, I have no more dye-able yarn, and all my sock yarn on-hand has colors that my pal requested her socks NOT have, so I decided to use a partial-wool, worsted weight, shade-of-brown yarn to make my pal socks thick enough that they COULD be worn as slippers, but still thin enough to fit inside a slightly large shoe. I hope that's okay... I can't afford any more sock yarn right now... Anyway, I got started on my "savior socks" and I think they're looking pretty okay :) Not as good as the originals, but I hope my pal will like them. Here's shots of the top (patterned) and bottom (plain). It's a pattern I'm making up as I go along, taking elements from all the socks I've knit thus far.
I have finished two more ball-band washcloths from Mason-Dixon Knitting, knit as opposites. I think I will try to do several sets of these to have on hand for when I need "hostess gifts"... instead of flowers or coffee (my usuals), how about a pair of handknit warshcloths? :)
Finally, I finished the baby kimono (also from MDK), but have to get the ribbons and make a matching hat before I post any pics.
