Soaps!, originally uploaded by Auggy D'Auggy.

Got some silicone novelty ice cube tray molds for making soaps: hearts, stars, jewels, and braaaaaaains! The first batch of brains ended up looking like an anuerism because the liquid soap coloring I used pooled at the bottom. For the first batch of jewels, I just a little too much color and the same thing happened. Second batch of both came out much better.

February Lady Frenzy!!!

February Lady for Goose, originally uploaded by Auggy D'Auggy.

Finally finished Goose's sweater. She came up that weekend for the Nordic Knitting Conference and we blocked it so she could wear it.

I started mine right after I finished hers and I just have to do the sleeves!

Finally finished the body of the February Lady Sweater I'm making for my mom. With moving to a new apartment and all the craziness of life and work etc I haven't had much time for knitting. Next up is the sleeves which should go pretty fast.

Wee Wonderfuls Felt Hand-sewn Bunny

The other week I was down in Portland for OSCON and my mom and I visited her favorite sewing shop. I picked up these little cards with softy patterns by Wee Wonderfuls and made the bunny!

Behold the power! 3 Wolf Tuscan Milk Moon

I tie-dyed the tshirt on the stove using iDye. This was the second batch. The black is really solid, the lighter part came out to be a nice grey.

I modified the original 3 wolves image and added a gallon of Tuscan milk. Did you know that's the same brand of milk they use on Iron Chef America?! haha

I then printed the image onto an opaque iron-on transfer from Dharma Trading. Those things are really good quality!

If you don't get the reference, here it is:
Three Wolf Moon Shirt -

The joke behind the milk is it was coming up as a recommended item or an item that customers who bought the shirt also bought. It is such a random and strange item to buy on Amazon that it has gotten almost as much attention as the shirt.

Here's the Tuscan Milk -

Obey the French Bulldog Tshirts

I found this cute image on the Internet and decided to put them on some blank Tshirts I had dyed. I used the opaque iron-on transfers from Dharma Trading. I use iDye (also purchased through Dharma) on the stove to dye the shirts. I used blank white tshirts I ordered wholesale through American Apparel. I get a dozen of a style in white, comes out to about $3-$5 a shirt depending on the style.

Lenore socks for mom in vesper semi solid cherry red

Super crappy pic of the socks I made for my mom for Xmas. She really likes them. My gin bottle blue Vesper semi-solid doesn't seem like it's faded but her cherry red did. Maybe she washes them more often from wearing them so much... :)

Fingering weight socks for dad in Knit Picks Lily Pond knit picks stroll

Knitted these for my dad for xmas. Finished them in early Jan.

Childs French Sock in Frog Creek Fibers Icewine

This is the Child's French Sock from Nancy Bush's book Knitting Vintage Socks. She adapted the pattern to fit a woman's foot. It's a little tough to see the sock pattern due to the poor quality of the photo (and the awkward lighting). I'm doing it on 3 circular needles because there was no easy way to divide the pattern into 2 and I prefer circulars to double points.

The yarn is by a bunch of gals from Portland I met at the So Much Yarn knitting retreat last fall. These socks are being knitted in their Ebullient yarn in the Icewine colorway. They sell their yarn here -

Noro socks in 2 colorways

Noro socks in 2 colorways, originally uploaded by Auggy D'Auggy.

Started a pair of simple fingering weight socks using the Noro yarn I made my Old Shale scarf with. I love the colors and I have enough yarn leftover that I can easily make a pair of 7-8" socks. They won't match, but they'll be colorful!!

Hedera socks in Blue Moon Socks That Rock Koi Koi

New Message, originally uploaded by Auggy D'Auggy.

Finally finished these! I had knit them too loose the first time so I frogged and re-knit them. I started the second sock on the train on the way home from Portland and finished it the other day. Yay socks!

WIP: Embossed Leaves socks in STR Lemongrass

Made more progress on my socks! 8 rows away from the heel! I will be doing the twisted rib heel from the Pomatomus socks instead of the heel in the pattern. I'm worried they might be too loose so I might have to reknit on a smaller sized needle :(
