This is my little showcase of things done, made and accomplished. I jumped the knitting bandwagon about a year ago, so here are some recent Finished Objects.

 

Hedera sock

The Hedera sock from the Spring 2006 issue of Knitty in fantabulous pink, because the store only offered gooey baby colours of Rowan 4-ply soft.

Baudelaire socks

The Baudelaire socks from the Summer 2006 edition of Knitty are also designed by the divine Cookie. My version is much chunkier, more peasant girl than decadent Paris chic, thanks to the strange Wetterhof Sofia yarn (50% wool 50% silk) that was much thicker than the pattern called for. The lace and material make the socks nice and airy nevertheless. I really liked the lace pattern, so I may knit them out of a more appropriate yarn later.

I’m suddenly struck by the fact that one cannot “post” on a “page”. Durnit! Meanwhile, my latest accomplishments are the Clapotis that everybody was making a couple of years back, and an essay that has been weighing on my mind for the past – oh, three years or so. Witness my l33t pr0cr4st1n4t10n sk1llz! All hail the fantastic Finnish university system! The “C” is so cozy and warm and pretty and drapes perfectly around my shoulders that it almost makes me stop counting how many warm dinners I could have had for the price of the yarn (Lorna’s Laces Lion and Lamb in Irvine Park). Pictures once I manage to take some that I can stand. The essay was much easier to write once I actually sat down to write the damn thing. Maxine Hong Kingston has now been duly analysed. Now I’m just waiting for my grade, although at this point it’s pretty much academic (ahhahah).
