Actual Knitting Content

It’s been a while since I’ve posted knitting content. Honestly, It’s been a while since I’ve knit.  Between work, grad school, and trying to get Rock Solid Designs up and running and semi-viable as a company, I have barely had a second to relax!  This post will be a review of knitting I have completed over the past two months. 

Remember the Viper Pilot socks I was working on for J? Yeah. After 3 attempts and two different needles sizes, I gave up and told him I was keeping them for myself. I couldn’t handle ripping half a sock out a third time. That’s just demoralizing. So, here is the first sock of my new pair:

Not the best pictures, but you get the idea. At least the sock fits someone now. But because I love J oh so much…I promised I would still knit him the sock. So we went digging through my stash, and found a yarn that would work better with a larger needle size. These are coming along quite nicely.

Here is the start of his sock. Going along much smoother, thank goodness. I like the color of this yarn. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it’s a subtle gradient from dark blue to dark green-blue. 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to get a sweater knit before winter ends, but it doesn’t look like it will get done. I haven’t even worked on this since Christmas. I LOVE this sweater, and I LOVE this yarn. It’s an Opulent Raglan knit with Madtosh DK yarn. I wish I had more time to work on this, because it’s done nothing wrong. It deserves to be loved.

Hopefully I will have time to work on her once spring break starts for my classes next week.
