Double Trouble

We had a very successful Heet The Feet 2008 Challenge!

717 pairs of socks & slippers were mailed to the Cheyenne River Reservation.

Now we are looking forward to the upcoming 2008 Mittenz Challenge that has yet to be announced.
And some of us are getting a head start on Heet the Feet 2009!

This is turning out to be a lot of fun for our group as some of us have been calling it the

"Battle of the Needles"

And so I have decided to learn the knitting socks on 2 circular method. I am hoping this will cure my 2nd sock syndrome! And just to make things more interesting, I cast on for mittens with 2 circulars.

A mess of needles and yarn!

WIP Update

All the current WIPs are progressing slowly and some are FO's.

The loom mittens are done and then I knit another pair with the same yarn.
Pictures and more details to come.

The Bond Scrap blanket - I made two panels and I am crocheting around them.
2 more panels need to be made but I needed the machine to knit up some quick dishcloths.

Still working on the Mile-A-Minute blanket and the 6" crocheted squares.

The Lion Brand poncho is halfway done.

The Haekelbeutel squares are all done, just sewing them together, then for the straps.

Finished trimming all the trees in the backyard - now for weeding, ugh....

Just finished reading The Beach House by James Patterson.

And I wonder why I do not have time to take pictures and post!

Congratulations to your group for meeting the Heet The Feet Challenge. I don't know how many knitters were participating, but that sure is a lot of socks and slippers!

I just learned how to knit 2 sox on 2 circs and its great!! my last pair came out mismatched (one foot was longer than the other) so now i won't have that happen again.
I have the usm too and use it to make baby blankets for a local hospital.
