knitting updates

ok, now for a knitting update :) i know thats what you really wanted to see. here are the contents of the sockpalOOOza package that goes out in one week. i am so excited! counterclockwise from lower left: there is a sock tote for her to use the next time she knits a pair of socks, the socks, postits. my favorite way to mark patterns, a card telling her all about her socks, a postcard of longs peak to show where i'm from, a birthday card fror her to share with a knitting friend on a special day, and stitch markers.
i love presents!
i can't wait to mail this!

and on to current knitting...
so a few weeks ago i went down to highlands ranch for the Littleton meetup, i went next door to string to do a yarn exchange. thats like free yarn you know. and picked up 7 balls of this

elsabeth lavold sily wool. ooooh. wonderful yarn!
i know, there are only 4 in the photo. thats because my italy cardigain is well under way. 2 balls in i just stared the third and i love love love this yarn it knits beautifully and feels so good. oh, heres the front of the cardigan

and the back

i can't wait to pair this with one of my cute tops that i've purchased for the trip. we leave in less than a month now...yikes i better get knitting. lucky the boulder sNb meets tonight :)

and remember i was also trying to make a bad penny 2 for the trip? well here it is. the left sleeve is waiting to be tubular cast off, and the right hasn't been taken off holders yet. and i think it may be too small. it needas a wash, a block and some serious stretching. i really really realy want to wear this on my trip. but we shall see. mom thinks she gets it if i can't wear it...
i don't know about that :)

and last but certainly not least. you know how it goes. projects you absolutely must finish by a deadline but you just have to cast on for something new...

thats right log cabin socks from handknit holidays, heres my progress so far

perfect bedtime knitting while listening to a story on my ipod. :)

You're all over the place! The cardi is so cute. I love that shade of green for you. I think you will get it finished in time. You just need to get Bad Penny done too. Those socks are very cute too. Good luck with the interview and such.
