More Finished Stuff

Wow! I am on a roll. I guess this blogging thing could be the solution for my inability to finish projects. So I have socks:

These are just plain old stockingette socks. They are Navy Patons' Kroy Socks 2.5 mm dpns. I've knit two other pairs like this and I find they're great everyday socks. Inexpensive yarn that knits up well and I can throw them in the washer and dryer.

I also finished this:

This is Grumperina's Odessa hat minus the beads. I loved this pattern! I can't wait to try it again with beads this time. It's knit out of the Luxury Collection Fine Merino Superwash DK. This was also left over from my brother's holiday scarf. He won't miss it I'm sure :)

So now that I've got a bunch of little projects finished, I really should work on the bigger ones. Here is the start of the Kahki Cables Cardigan:
Not much to look at. You can barely see the cables. It's just going to be a black blob. I doubt I'll blog it much, unless there's serious progress. Despite its lack of blogability (new word?), I really like this yarn and the pattern is knitting up nicely. Should be working on it more.
There's also this one:
This is one I've had on the needles for years. It's a Michael Kors design aran top from the Holiday 2005 issue of Vogue Knitting. And the back is almost entirely done. I think the holdup is that it's knit in acrylic Bernat Big Value. Now that I've discovered the joys of natural fibres, the acrylic, just doesn't feel right. Not to mention that it's Michael Kors (his, incidentally is knit in cashmere).
So, instead, I have more little projects. Like:
Endpaper mitts. These are from Eunny's blog, and they are my first attempt at colour work. I'm over the moon with how well they seem to be coming together. I'm terrified that they will be too small though. They look really small. I think I may just be comparing them to socks and my wrists are considerably smaller than my ankles. Time will tell. Anyway, there's more UFOs kicking around my place, but this is already a picture heavy post and it's almost midnight which is way past my bedtime, so I'll save them for another time.
