Rainy Days Make For Lots of Knitting FO's

Finally some knitting pics!

These are knit with 2 strands of Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I was inspired by Lizzie and all those beautiful socks she knits. I also taught myself a new toe finish - the star toe.

Here's another pair based on the CIC sock pattern.
Yarn: Lion Brand Woolease.

I think I like making smaller socks!

Ugg Booties or Suede Booties

Whatever you want to call them, these are based on this pattern.
Suede Booties by Candi Jensen

So again I did not follow the pattern for the booties exactly. I modified the cuff part by adding some ribbing with a smaller needle.

Dandy Little Booties

Pattern: A Dandy Little Bootie
Somehow I made a mistake - I have garter ridges and there is not supposed to be any. Must make more and re-read the pattern!

Fair Isle Slippers
This used to be a free pattern awhile back, but not anymore.
It is now in the Bernat Great Gift Ideas #530181 booklet.

2 Strand Slippers

The above pair of slippers was based on Dilys Sutherland's Three Strand Slipper pattern. I knit them from the toe up and used 2 strands of knitting worsted.

Here's another tweedy pair from the same pattern as above. I guess I really like this pattern!

Slipping Along Here

Another quick knit are these slippers by Kathy North.

Pattern: Ballet Slippers
On Ravlery:

I used size 8 needles and worked a couple more decrease rounds because I wanted a taller/warmer top. So mine are not really "ballet" type slippers, just plain 'ole slippers.

Finished off 2 pairs of socks - need to take pictures.

On the needles right now:
1. Bond/ISM scarf
2. Ugg Booties

And can you believe that I only have 2 projects? I need to dig into that WIP pile and rescue some orphans!
