A Pair of FO's

I've been remiss in showing you my knitting progress. There have been lots of opportunities to knit lately. And deadlines (such as births) have passed. So I can show you a couple of things...

Jenny Wren Socks- FO

Pattern: Jenny Wren Socks
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock S188 from The Loopy Ewe
Needles: KP 2.5mm, magic loop
Date Started: 1/1/09
Date Finished: 5/29/09
Mods: None. But I sure am glad these blocked out nicely. And the yarn really softened up.

And yes, I finally bought sock blockers. I heart them.

Here's a close up of the cable details

Jenny Wren Socks- Detail

Also, Driesy got a sweater. Even though it's going to get warm here in the next week or two. It's still cool at night. And no nephew of mine will be without a handknit sweater to keep him toasty!

Baby Yours- FO

Pattern: Baby Yours by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee from Blue Moon Fiber Arts
Yarn: Koigu KPPM P418 from Purl Soho in NYC
Needles: KP 3.5mm
Date Started: 4/12/09
Date Finished: 6/1/09
Mods: None. But I wish this wasn't seemed. What a pain!

Baby Yours- Buttons

What I really love is the button. Cute but matching the cable motif. Now I only need a pic of Dries in it. Ahem, Sally!

Beautiful socks, and I love the little jacket! Sometimes, a beautiful button is all it takes to make a project perfect. Nicely done.

Two great Fo's!

Love the baby sweater!

How is the Noro Sock yarn? Scratchy to wear?

LOVE them socks! And I am now reminded that I want to make a Baby Yours. I've done two Baby Mines, but right now there are no boy babies on the way and plenty of other 'on hold' knitting to work on!

I love that baby sweater! I would love to make one for my son like that (although seaming holds me back just for a sec!) Is the pattern from a book? I'm kinda new at knitting and don't know all the books / mags names yet. :/
