Ha! I have finally managed to bring both the camera and the USB cord to work, so you can all admire my latest creations.

I give you...ChildHood (sans hood)

Made with Manos del Uruguay Cotton Stria. Man is that stuff yummy to work with. Hopefully when I see my goddaughter in November I can get a pic of her actually wearing the thing.

And, what I finished while watching the Yankees lose last night...Voodoo wristwarmers.

A different angle...

I made them with a wonderful merino/silk blend that my current Knitty SP sent me. I just wish it was cool enough to wear them. But, I hear it's going to be chilly this weekend, so I'll have to plan an outing just so that I can wear my new wristwarmers.

In other news, the KnitPicks yarn came last night! Tonight I'm going to cast on for either the cigar gloves or the socks that I'm going to make for my mom. I think I'm going to do Broadripple, but I may meddle with the pattern a bit and do a short-row heel instead of the gusset. Then again, they are a gift, so maybe I should just do it as written rather than screw it up and have to redo it. Or maybe I'll just start on the gloves. If I have the right needles, that is.

I really need to do a needle inventory. Right now, I have a vague idea of which sizes I have, but when it comes to circulars I don't have a clue about which lengths they are. That leads to a bit of frustration when I've got the yarn all ready to go but I have to wait to get the right needles.

For some reason I ordered one skein of Shimmer in Stained Glass and I have no idea what I was planning to make with it. I think it was intended for Clapotis, but it's the wrong weight. Huh...guess it'll go into the stash until it decides what it wants to be.

That's so funny- I ordered shimmer to use for a clapotis also and it didn't work out. I even tried holding it double stranded and using bigger needles- didn't really work out as I had hoped :(

Your wristwarmers look great! So warm and cozy... ah, fall.
