sushi! Minus the wasabi, it was a choking hazard and they all have little ones the same age as my kids.
pizza pizza pizza.
In looking at them together, I think I may have used 2 different sized needles. I know the smaller one was on size 5s, I must have used 6's for the larger one. Same pattern, just different sizes. They both came out looking yummy though. I crocheted and embroidered the toppings instead of knitting them, I found it easier.
This is the vest I am working on. Simply Soft in the heather grey color. The photo below I did without flash so you could see the pattern better. Once it is 16 inches I will separate the front and back to do the armholes and neckline etc. Right now I think its about 6-7 inches so I have a ways to go. It is a good mindless project, just the one cable section. 6 row repeat, 3 of the rows have the cable action. I should start taking this in the car, maybe put the pattern on a post it to put on the dashboard! the rest is a k2/p2 checkerboard in a 3 row repeat. k2/p2 for 3 rounds, then p2/k2 for 3 rounds. Almost makes me think of medeval chain mail or something.
And my latest socks. Finished up the top part tonight, ready to start the heel flap. This yarn I got at the barnes and nobles knitting night I go to sometimes, one of the gals had a friend who had an online yarn shoppe that was going out of business. It is a hand dyed machine washable yarn, I've had it for months and the label is long gone so I can't remember what is in it, but I think it is some sort of cotton blend. I love the subtle color changes that happen in hand dyeing.
