Mi Escuelita

The new fall knitty is out and I've already cast on Mi Escuelita for my daughter, Aija. This is gonna be her brand new 3rd grade sweater. I just hope I finish it before the 1st snow fall, LOL! Here's a pic of the back...

I'm using Jojoland Wool Solids in Navy Blue on size 5 US needles. I might have used a superwash wool since this is for a messy 8 year old but I already had 14 skeins of this in the stash we are. Here's the link for anyone interested...

Bad Blogger! No cookie!!!

I've been a very naughty blogger. I've been neglecting my readers and I'm sorry. How about a FO parade to show you what I've been up to??

I've finished the Clown Barf socks. This is Red Heart Heart & Sole sock yarn, US 2 needles. My thoughts on this yarn: I'm just kinda so-so on it. The color repeats didnt; they were just kinda willy-nilly so I wasn't able to make the socks match.'s a pic.

I also finished the v-neck top from Knit Simple's summer issue.

My thoughts: This top could have been a little longer in the torso. I don't like were it hits on my hips but since I've already sewed it together, what can you do, you know? Also, I used Lion Brand Cotton for this top and when I blocked it, the yarn bled a little bit. *shrug*

I also finished the Chevron Scarf That Wouldn't End from Last Minute Knits. And let me tell you...I started that scarf in March; it is NOT last minute knit.
