Everybody was kung-FO fighting.

Slaying UFO’s around here, just cutting them down left and right Jedi style. Well the knitted UFO’s anyhow, *cough* let’s not talk about the sewing UFO’s.

Mary_janes

First up, Sweet Mary Janes. Knitted in Kureyon, 2 balls. Can’t remember pattern details, except that it was a nice pattern and a very quick knit. I also knitted them on 2 circ’s, can’t deal with DPN’s. I’ve had these bebe’s finished for over a month, just needed to finish the crochet edge on one of them and attach the kitty buttons. I’m loving the kitty buttons and Noro just have a knack for variegated yarns. Loving it.

Here’s the pattern and the KAL.

Socks_that_rock

Next up my rockin’ socks. Knitted in Socks that Rock, Hard Rock. Using Craftaholic’s chart, I then fudged the pattern together, figure of 8 cast on 2.5mm two circular’s, toeup, with short row heels. No "heel flap" which I’m not sure how I feel. I do like the short row heels, very neat. I like the finished feel of the STR yarn, however it’s a much firmer knit than Lorna’s or CTH. I usually use 2.5mm as my tension is tight on circular’s, but I could have gone down to a 2mm I reckon for these. Excuse this picture, I’ll try and get you a clearer one for another post.

    Hey thanks everyone. Nice pattern and not too slippery on tiles 🙂 I am thinking of putting some little puff paint spots on the bottoms to stop the slip.
    Yes! They stay on, the straps help too and they are a snug fit.
