On the Go (Adriana)

Here's a quick post to show off what I'm currently knitting. Apparently I've already used the titles "WIPs" and "On the Needles". Good to see just how creative I am :P

My bus/work knitting is Gen's handdyed socks, in a colourway I've taken to calling "Tropical Vacation". The blue makes me think of the sky and the water, and the green of island vegetation. Gen, you can change the name if you want since these are your socks.
I'm just about ready to turn the heel. It's amazing how much knitting I can get done between the bus rides and waiting for my super-slow computer to boot up at work (it takes 10 minutes to start. Seriously).

My evening and weekend knitting time has been taken up with a new project, Trellis. I'm making this for my friend Ev to give to her friend who is due at the end of March. Ev supplied the yarn and will be taking me to our favourite restaurant in payment for the knitting.
I'm finding it slow going despite the tiny size. I'm discovering that I'm not such a big fan of cabling (sorry Jane).

It's is awfully cute, though. This is the finished back and I'm about 2 inches into the two fronts (I'm doing them at once in the hopes of making the sweater go by faster).

That's all for today. I'm hoping to finish Trellis this weekend since we get Monday off due to the newly created "Family Day".

Like them or not, your cabling is lovely. Trellis is looking great!

I am loving the cabling! I don't like the cable rows, but I find that the anticipation makes the knitting go by so much faster.

And yay for Family Day!

That sock yarn looks fabulous, just the right kind of stripes.
