Finished Knitting Projects

I finished a few knitting projects recently so here they are:

Socks for my dad.

A lace knit cowl, with a pattern (Magazine Street Cowl) and yarn that I purchased on the Chicago Yarn Crawl.

A mini monster by Rebecca Danger.

The empire waist baby sweater from my Vogue Knitting Live class with Susan Anderson. 

And these are so close, hopefully I will finish them up this weekend.  Then, on to my next project.

String-a-Long Monkey

Here's my little monkey from the Vogue Knitting Live class with Susan Anderson.  I think he turned out pretty cute.  The pattern also has options for a frog and a mouse.

Vogue Knitting Live

I attended the first Vogue Knitting Live Chicago this past weekend and had a great time.  I took two classes with Susan B Anderson.  One was to learn how to knit toys and the other was a baby sweater class. I really enjoy her patterns and she is a wonderful teacher.  Above is a picture of my monkey and baby sweater that I worked on in class.  She also did a drawing and gave away yarn to people in class.  I won the yarn that is behind my monkey.  It will be great for another baby sweater.  I hope to take another class from Susan someday.  You can read more about her Vogue Knitting Live experience on her blog - and, I'm in a couple of pictures there too.  Here is a link:
