Still Knitting....

...even if I'm not blogging... Here are a few pictures of my crafty happenings as of late:

Monkey Socks
Monkey Socks for a swap partner over on Rav.

Aren't they cute!
OK not a knitting project, but very worthy of a blog post... Made these with my preschoolers! Love em!

Finished Sock!
KAL socks over at Rav.

Socks, socks, and more socks. I've recently discovered that there are knitters out there that will swap yarn for handknit socks! Excellent for people like myself that knit them but don't wear them (I wear holes in them too quickly because I walk funny...). The Monkey Socks and the Orange and Black Ribbed Socks (see last post) were both for a Rav friend; she sent me sock yarn in return... yummy! I have four more pairs lined up for two others. Woo! Gives new meaning to the phrase, will knit for yarn...

And, despite all the issues they had the last round, I've signed up for Sock Wars again. I just can't resist... new sock pattern, knitting to the death.... =) In the spirit of the impending bloodshed, fellow warrior Starknits is having a wonderful little contest! Go check it out, and while you're at it... check out her etsy shoppe too! There are some nice patterns, cute stitch markers, and even a bag or two! Plus, she takes custom requests! =)

And now I'm off to bake... Bunny Cakes for tomorrow's Easter Dinner! =)

Craft On All!
