My first Loom Knitted hat. I started on Christmas and finished today. I'm so proud of myself.

Another pic of the beret.

This is another beret same as the other one just different colors. This one is a Christmas gift. I used gold, burgundy and white, Red Heart, 4 ply worsted weight yarn.

I'm so happy to finish another pair of socks. These are my first pair of worsted weight slippers and magic loop. Knitted with a size 5 knitpick interchangeable needles. I'm very happy with my finished results.

Finally finished Queen Kahuna, Crazy Toe and Heel Socks. I love the way they look. I wanted the heel to be red as well, but wasnt sure when to change the color. I used Bernat Sox Yarn, which I really like working with, but it is now discontinued. wah wah A few sites still sale it (www.herrschners.com). I used a US 2 (Addis) needles to knit these babies up. I'm so proud of my accomplishments. Took me forever and a day to get them done, but well work knitting each and every stitch. I really made a mess of the pattern on the leg og the sock (the white portion) . The lace rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks, on page 44. The next go around I will only knit when I can focus using a pattern. :-)

My first magic loop sock. I used worsted weight yarn and the directions from the magic loop book. Knitted using US 5 knitpick needles. The yarn is red heart, Buff Fleck. I feel crazy putting Art #, lol. No one corrected me. :-)

My first magic loop sock using worsted weight yarn. It's knitting up so quickly. Will make great slippers. I love the color, it's Art by red heart. Using the knitpick, US 5, circular needles.
A heel view. I used the slipstitch heel and for the leg using the lace rib from the Sensational Knitted Sock book. I wanted to make the heel red, but wasn't sure where to change the color at.

Here is how far I am on my first pair of toe up, Queen Kahuna's Crazy Toe and Heel socks (that was a mouth full).
