Rather be knitting...

I really want to be knitting right now, rather than sitting here at my desk at work.

I decided to knit up the pinwheel blanket again. The first one I made was for a coworker's baby. This one is for my 3 cats. I am making it out of my leftover sock yarn. I had made 4 scarfs out of the left overs, previously, but decided to knit something different this time. I really loved the way the scarves turned out though, but enough is enough - time to knit something for the kitties.

Z is for Zeeger & M is for Metro

I finished my Zeegers, which are a cross between a tiger and a zebra.

They are the Diagonal Lace Socks from Wendy's book, Socks from the Toe Up. I have finished two of her patterns from her book in just two weeks. I am now a die-hard toe-up fan. What has made it so enjoyable is Judy's Magic Cast On. This makes the toes so much easier. I am also using Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. YouTube videos of both of these techniques are below.

The first pair I made of Wendy's were the Riding on the Metro Socks.
