It's Still New Year's Eve To Me

I worked tonight until 11:30. So I didn't make it home until after the clock struck midnight. I'm not a HUGE New Year's person. So that's just fine by me. But I did promise to show you the last 2 FO's of '08.

Baby Mine- All done

Baby's First Merlot
Pattern: Baby Mine by Yarn Harlot
Yarn: Yarntini Merino Sport in Merlot
Needles: Knit Picks US size 5
Date Started: 12/6/08
Date Finished: Knitting- 12/12/08, Buttons- 12/31/08
Mods: None

Baby Mine- Buttons

The buttons are shell from JoAnn's. In person, they reflect the pink a lot better than they do in photographs. It was decided that the baby born in October is too big for this little sweater. So I'll have to start something else for her. Oh well, there are lots of babies coming and I'm sure one of them will fit into this perfectly.

Stripey Scout Socks- Done

Stripey Scout Socks
Pattern:
My own toe up formula
Yarn: Knit Picks Sock Blank that I dyed in Scout's dyeing class
Needles: Addi Turbo US Size 1.5
Date Started: 9/14/08
Date Finished: 12/29/08

Stripey Scout Socks- Lined Up

Since the yarn was dyed as double knit fabric, the stripes match up perfectly. I even wore them to work tonight. Love 'em!

Happy New Year!!!!!

That is a beautiful sweater! I'm as curious as Peaknit - is that just one skein of sport wt yarn for the sweater? I have that exact color from Yarntini!
I love the socks - enough to brighten up even the lousiest of shifts at work! :) Happy New Year! PS - I work tomorrow, and then all next week. It's in the world of nursing. Never a holiday enjoyed on time....SIGH........

Happy New Year!

The sweater is so cute and I love how I saw you go from hand-dying your yarn to knitting them up into a finished pair of socks. Nice!
