I is for...

I won!



That's a finished project from knitting lingerie style. It's made with Valley Yarns Pelham, very pink, which is a soft bumpy cotton. It's a very comfy outfit and I'm so glad it's done.

I finished that Thursday. Unfortunately my husband spent the weekend recovering from a cold, so I felt a little bad winning the first part of the competition. ...but not bad enough to stop trying to win the second part.

Saturday we both bound off a short sock, his (almost done) can be found here, here's mine.



I knew I would have a couple hours of sitting Saturday night, so I cast on the second sock right away and got through the increases in the toes as quickly as I could, so Saturday night, while I was listening, I got to knit.




I is also for I-cord!

Today I'm trying to finish up the last I-cord rug for JoySchool. Last week I taught one day and used the rugs (borrowing a couple from my girls) and it helped me. I'm not sure how well they will work at the other house it is held at, but I enjoyed using them, and I think the kids did too.
