“no picture” finished objects and a new wip (with pictures)

17 01 2007

i got so excited about the tutorial, i forgot to post a finished object picture of my rainbow brite socks…and these days the sun is in short supply. i so do hate posting pictures using my flash; everything looks so overexposed and cannot be fixed in photoshop. (i do have some great blurry pics of my socks posing with butter (K)).

chevron pattern from sensational knitted socks by charlene schurch
the sock club november yarn in confetti
started: december 29, 2006
finished: january 14, 2007
needles: 2-2.5mm circular needles
notes: started toe-up with figure-8 casted on 12, 66 stitches,
k1p1 ribbed cuff and invisible bind-off

OT: did you see that a new charlene schurch sock book is being released? more sensational knitted socks! ah!! amazon is taking pre-orders.

i also have some knitted facecloths that i started a while ago. my facewash has medication in it and discolors our towels. seeing that i was making these for the sole purpose of being destroyed, i didn’t even think to take pictures of them. but again, i think that i should at least record their existence. by the way, that book is only o.k., if you’re interested in it, check it out at the library before you invest.

 

{don’t these imaginary facecloths just wow you?}

 

4 knitted facecloths
various patterns from 200 knitted blocks by jan eaton

lion brand cotton-ease in pink and purple
started: a long time ago
finished: january 14, 2007
needles: can’t remember
notes: finished with single crochet edging

finally, i have started another sock. here is the yarn i chose:

070117_str.raregem2

socks that rock mediumweight – rare gem
the outside of the skein is a pretty mix of shades of reds,pinks and burgundies
but the inside has little bands of melon, lilac, and blue-green

the coloring is not even throughout the skein, so i think i’ll end up with one colorful and one not-so-colorful sock. it shows up more than expected, deterring from the simple cable pattern. here is a knitted bit of it (a tad overexposed) as an example:

070117_str.raregem

whitby from knitting on the road by nancy bush
started: january 14, 2007
needles: 5 – #2 lantern moon dpn’s
notes: added another rib since the pattern pulls in,
maybe finish the first cuff then start the second because of the coloring?

despite the let-down from the color, i still love this yarn (it was a ‘bonus’ skein anyway). it’s a pleasure to work with! i can always overdye, right? πŸ˜‰

I still like that sock and the colors very much! You take great pics too, don’t sell yourself so short! Talk about yarnography, I still don’t have any STR, but soon. My promise to self is, once I at least start my first pair, I am then allowed to buy some. Good incentive no?

What glamorous imaginary pictures! However did you get those shots? πŸ˜‰ As far as the color issues go, you could always wind the STR into two balls and alternate between them every row.

what pretty (non)pictures! πŸ™‚ I hate winter for picture taking! No light!

I tried whitby also with some varigated yarn and ended up ripping it – you couldnt’ see the pattern at all..the cables are so small they seem to dissapear easily. the Denmarks (I just did them) may work ok with that coloring though it’s a big enough cable….

Thank you for sharing the new Sensational Knitted Socks info. I have been looking at Favorite Socks and did not realize that another new sock book was coming out. Amazon nicely puts both books together to pre-order. Pretty Gems socks, I’m very curious how it will look overall, please keep us posted!
