Airplane sock

More sock. This one is basically done, just a little ribbing to go. Then sock number two, possibly followed by a sweater.

Strawberries for Spring

I now have lots of strawberries and herbs planted. Hopefully I'll get some fruit before I take off in July.

Frogged Again

P4070021, originally uploaded by alicen.

These socks do not want to exist, it seems. I tore out the sock pictured here (this is the second time) after concluding that the stranded knitting was never, ever going to stretch enough to be an effective sock (at least not on those needles). So I'm redoing it with straight, non-stranded stripes, which goes a lot faster.

Trail Gloves

P4040022, originally uploaded by alicen.

I made these gloves for Tom to take on the Appalachian trail, which he leaves for next week. He wanted something wool, but didn't specify that they had to be serious...

(The wool is hand-dyed too - my first foray into dyeing yarn. Probably not something I'd use normally, but you never know. And the white swirly bits are made of some of the very first yarn I ever spun myself.)

wizard robe

A while ago (like in January), I made this robe/coat thing that I wear all the time. It still needs pockets and a clasp, but I've been using it so it's probably worth posting pictures.


Note the pointyness! I have plans to add a bell to the end.

I am seriously bundled up here. It hangs better in real life.
