Fantasy Baseball

The Rookie
Due to a pretty slow work day at the yarn store, I was able to start and complete about three inches on this project today.

Up From The Minors
I'll be teaching a new round of entrelac bag classes starting in May, so this bag is back in the rotation.

All Star
Sleeve number two is up past my elbow. This sweater is definitely on the all star list. I ordered my buttons online last week.

Switch Hitter
Switching up your projects now and then can give you a new perspective and stronger focus.

Disabled List
This sock was going strong in my magic loop class. As you can see, I made it past the heel and even through the gusset decreases. I love this yarn, and I love how it's working up in the pattern (Gentleman's Fancy Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks). However, I followed the pattern in the book for the heel, and... I don't like it. It's just plain knit heel flap with a purl "seam" down the center. However, the purls don't look like a seem, they make it look like I have remedial knitting skills. And the heel turn is too pointy. I thought I was going to be able to get over it, but I can't. I'm going to have to rip it back to just before the heel. I need to rip it. Because I don't like it. I do like the magic loop method, though.

On Deck
My yarn store finally got all of the colors of this delicious sock yarn that I need for a
very special pair of socks. As soon as I get through some of the above projects, you better believe I'll be casting these on.

Wow you have a good list going there. I hope that the socks will work out once you rip back the heel.

You're making another Market Squares bag?!? That is so exciting! I pilfered the yarn I was going to use for my second one to start making an afghan. I don't do too well at making the same thing twice (which is why I only have one mitten...) I can't wait to see your sweater!!!
