Progress Report

Normally, I like to give progress updates on the 15th of the month, but I went ahead and called for this photo shoot today. I wonder what the heck I'll post about tomorrow? Anyway...

Today I began the armhole decreases on my yellow and blue vest. I am going to try to have the vest finished and ready to wear on January 24th, when our team plays against Milan at home. Having a do-able deadline is really going to get me moving on this project.

I finished the main part of the first colorful slipper. I plan to guessed it...ribbing round the ankle. Then I'll discover whether or not I can replicate this marvel of colorwork.

Here's what it looked like on the inside, before I wove all those ends in. Talk about a whole barrel of fun? This ain't it, kid.

The second sock for my mother-in-law is just shy of the heel flap. Once I hit the stockinette foot, it will practically fly off the needles. Or something like that.

Any other stray knitting you see in the photo may - or may not - be the TSGFSVS. That's for me to know, and you to find out.

What would happen if you DIDN'T weave in all those ends? Wouldn't they be like thrums and still felt and be warm?
Just trying to help *g*

Yeah, the weaving in of all the ends, on the bottom of the foot brought me up short on adding a bunch of color work to my slippers from that pattern. Just too much in too small of a spot....

I did find another pattern I like and will share on my blog sometime today.
