One Off and Another One On

One project off the needles: a scarf for my niece. I took her to the yarn store and she chose the yarn she wanted.

And a new one on the needles: Socks for my brother. I'm using KnitPicks Essential Tweed in Inca Gold and size 1 needles.
This is the first half of the short row toe

Here are both toes completed.

I'm working both socks at the same time on two circular needles. This way they'll both be finished at the same time. My brother has big feet, I hope these won't take forever to finish (he probably hopes the same! LOL).
Actually, I also started another project too, a scarf for my nephew, but I don't have any pictures yet.

Jan Bookmark Finished

I just finished the January bookmark kal. I enjoy reading, so it will be getting plenty of use.

Knit Along

I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted. How time flies! Today I'll post some pictures of my knit-a-long projects.
First, the two projects kal:
Swish with a Twist
Sugar n Cream Tea Rose

Cabled bag - in progress
I need to finish this bag soon. We start two new projects on Feb. 1st.
Next, the FunKnittingDishcloth kal (previously dishclothfunkal):
December kal
January kal
Fountain Lace
Peaches n Creme Neon Green

Here are the 2 January cloths from the monthly dishcloth kal:

I joined a brand new knit-a-long for bookmarks. Here's our first one after day 2.

I also joined the six sox kal. The next project starts Feb. 1st. I can't wait to see the pattern we'll be using. I already have my yarn ready.
