Socks, socks, and an almost sweater

I completely forgot to take pics last post of the wonderful socks that Tamara made for the little guy for his birthday. He loves them immensely.

I signed up for Sock Wars a while back. I got to kill two targets and when I received my next target's socks, I got killed. I love the 2 toned colors.

My mystery sweater? Laura guessed correctly. It's Rogue. I finished the body of the sweater in 3 days. The sleeves took some time, as I did them both at the same time. And the hood. I started the hood this morning. And I got cranking on it this evening.....and then I realized I forgot to do increases. I only have to rip back about 15 rows, but it's enough to make me want to cry.

Some time ago, I went to the Yarn Tree and bought some merino in colors that the little one picked out to make him a scarf. Now that it's getting colder, I thought it was time to start spinning it up. I took some time out of knitting Rogue to spin up 3 oz. of the red merino. It's all spun up and plied and waiting for the twist to be set.

I should still have Rogue done by next Sat., as well as some mystery socks. More on that later

That merino looks good enough to eat! I love the cable-y goodness that is Rogue too.

Those are very cool birthday socks and sock war socks!

I'm humbled by your speed with Rogue--forgotten increases or not!

Awwww I'm glad Dan loves the socks! I like the two-tones SockWars socks too! Hmm, never thought to mix the colors like that before..

Whoa you floored with the 3-days body thing. Are you gonna be able to grasp the steering wheel this weekend?? :))
